Hoof abscesses in horses

Hoof abscess is one of the most common causes of lameness in horses. It is a painful condition, but if it is detected and treated in time, it can be cured rapidly and avoid the horse to suffer from any after-effects.

The horse's foot

All riders know the saying "no feet, no horse". Indeed, the particular structure that is the horse's foot is directly linked to its well-being. Whether you are a competition rider or the owner of a retired horse, the good health of your horse depends on the good health of its feet.

What can I do about my horse's cough?

One of the reasons your horse is such an incredible athlete is because of its extremely efficient respiratory system. Whether your horse is your riding companion or your faithful competition partner, its performance would not be possible without good respiratory function. So when your horse starts coughing, either during a session or while resting in the pasture, it should alert you.

Navicular syndrome

"My horse is navicular" is a phrase you may have heard before. This pathology, generally responsible for chronic lameness, is feared by many riders. We would like to take a closer look at it.

Additional information

The horse's respiratory system

To ensure your horse's good health, it is important to understand how it functions. Although mobility is essential for good performance, nothing would be possible without an efficient respiratory system. Indeed, it is the latter that will ensure the supply of oxygen, necessary for the functioning of the whole organism, as well as the elimination of carbon dioxide.

Strengthen your horse's muscles

Every rider has to ask himself one day the question: How do you build up your horse's muscles? Behind this question lies the idea of having a well-muscled horse that is capable of performing the exercises that will be asked of it during work.

Additional information

The joints of a horse

The joint is a complex and fragile mechanism which allows mobility between bones. Your horse is born with a joint “capacity”, which will decrease with time and wear of the joint. The joint cannot be regenerated.

Additional information

Osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis sets in when the damage is too great and cannot be repaired. This occurs particularly when the joints are subject to significant strain (e.g. during sport), and as the body ages.

Additional information

Tendinitis (Musculoskeletal System)

Tendinitis is, etymologically speaking, inflammation of the tendon, whereas desmitis is inflammation of a ligament. Tendinitis or desmitis can be recognised by four easily identifiable clinical signs: redness, burning, pain (on palpation, lameness is not always present) and tumefaction (= swelling or oedema).

Additional information

Acute Diarrhoea (Digestive System)

"Acute diarrhoea" is not a disease but a symptom. Digestive transit is considerably accelerated and the horse expels very soft stools (like cow pats) or wholly liquid often very foul-smelling stools, no longer resembling droppings. As the term "acute" would suggest, the diarrhoea comes on suddenly and, above all, develops very rapidly.

Additional information

Gastric Ulcers

In a number of species, the ingestion of food and distension of the stomach are factors that stimulate the release of gastric secretions. Horses secrete hydrochloric acid continuously in their stomach, which therefore has a very low pH.

Additional information

Stress

Stress is the consequence of a change in the horse’s environment that he perceives as negative and that he hasn’t been able to anticipate. After having attempted to understand the situation, the horse will try to control it and accept it. If he is not able to do this, his brain will start to interpret the situation as an aggression: this is stress. The causes of stress are multiple: boredom, transport, pain, feed changes, changes in stable environment, extreme climate changes,…

Additional information

Respiratory Airway Obstruction

In the stabled horse, dust, pollens, molds and endotoxins present in hay and/or straw are the main culprits. The horse that lives in a field and that develops the summer pasture associated form appears to be more sensitive to field pollens. It is the prolonged exposure to these triggers that is at the origin of the chronicity of the disease.
