Man­ag­ing Al­ler­gies

EQUUS - - Advertoria­l From Platinum Performanc­e -

1. Vet­eri­nary Care

Vet­eri­nar­i­ans are best equipped to of­fer sound ad­vice on main­tain­ing a healthy en­vi­ron­ment, diet and sup­ple­ment reg­i­men for horses.

2. Deal with Dust

Re­duce dust by us­ing stall ma­te­ri­als that don’t gen­er­ate ex­cess dust, while keep­ing turnouts, pad­docks and pas­tures ad­e­quately wa­tered.

3. Aid with In­sects

Fans and fly sprays are great tools to keep the in­sect pop­u­la­tion down and the preva­lence of bites low. Fly sheets and masks can also help.

4. Proper Diet

Choose an anti-in­flam­ma­tory diet based on high-qual­ity for­age with min­i­mal grains and con­cen­trates. Soak hay or use a hay steamer if nec­es­sary to min­i­mize in­haled al­ler­gens.

5. Sup­ple­ments

Choose ei­ther Plat­inum Per­for­mance® Equine, Plat­inum Per­for­mance® CJ or Plat­inum Per­for­mance® GI to help main­tain over­all health, nor­mal al­ler­gic re­sponse and im­mune health in par­tic­u­lar. For horses with ad­vanced needs, add Plat­inum Skin & Al­lergy and, in some cases, Plat­inum's Healthy Weight oil.
