The main causes and symptoms of summer dermatitis in horses
Summer dermatitis in horses is caused by bites from blood-sucking insects such as Culicoides, flies, horseflies and blackflies. Animals scratch because of the itching, and abrasions can quickly become infected. It should be noted that equines which have already had a history of allergy are more sensitive and more exposed to this type of disease. This skin disease can also be favored by a diet rich in protein, by a lack of physical activity or by the fragility of the skin.
Horse summer dermatitis can affect your animals as young as 2 years old. It occurs especially during hot and humid seasons and moving can promote its occurrence. This condition mainly affects the head, neckline, mane, abdomen and base of the tail. Due to repeated scratching, the hairs are tousled, then the affected parts become bare. If no treatment is applied, the itching will intensify and the animal will continue to scratch. With friction, purulent and oozing or bloody nodules appear. The infection develops and lesions or scales appear. As spontaneous cures are quite rare, it is strongly recommended to treat your horse with natural products.
