Allergies in horses and using ACV- any positive results??

by Pam

French translation


I own a 10 y old TB gelding, Woodie, who has severe allergies to different environmental things (ie- timothy grass, ragweed, mold).

As a result of this, he sneezes constantly, flips his head, and is generally miserable.

Depending on the weather and pollen count, I usually can not ride him since he becomes so preoccupied with his nose and sneezing.

I started using the ACV about 6 weeks ago, after reading the "Folk Medicine" book that talks all about ACV.

I have noticed Woodie's demeanor is a bit more lovable, less cranky....but he still has some allergy issues, although they don't seem to be as overwhelming to him as they had before.

Anyone else use ACV for allergies?

I have him on Spirulina, garlic and some other products from Springtime,Inc (great products!).

Heaves, allergies, asthma
by: Anonymous

I've got a horse who was in a bad situation and she had horrible breathing and coughing.

I did the antihistamine and msm and it worked but I started using honey and vinegar because they don't sell antihistamine from AniMed anymore and vet costs to much.

It's been hot these past few days but moist. I'm hoping that bit continues to work as the weather gets dryer.

Another good review on equiopathic asthma and allergy but they are out of stock in different places I've looked so I'm hoping what I'm doing continues to work.

Garlic will inhibit the production of white blood cells.

A vet told me to supplement with antioxidants, I use powdered rose hips for the natural vit c content.

Please, stop feeding your horse garlic.
It causes the white blood cell count to drop and causes them to become anemic.

Search it on Google. I had been feeding it, and it scared the crap out of me. - feeding horses garlic can cause their red blood cell count to drop and lead to Heinz body anemia.

ACV/Honey can help allergies
by: Anonymous

If you also use local wild flower honey from your area, this may help him. [Check with a vet to see if harmful in any way.]

ACV and local honey --50/50% --add to water or use syringe to squirt that in his mouth. I did this with a third of DMSO and saved my dying horse.

Honey has the antidotes for allergies, and will fight allergies from within.

Let us know if this helps.
