Did you know allergies can cause your horse to stock up?
Allergens from feed, bedding or the environment (dust, mold, pollen) can lead to systemic inflammation that causes fluid to leak from the bloodstream into the body tissues. Gravity then facilitates the transfer of the fluids down to your horse’s legs and results in stocking up. Identifying and reducing exposure to allergens can help alleviate the problem. Providing an omega-3 fatty acid supplement such as Contribute, which is anti-inflammatory in nature, is helpful in reducing the fluid leakage that can result in stocking up.
