Horse Skin Problems

One of the most worrisome experiences as horse owner is to arrive at the barn and find that your horse has a wound, rash, bite or mysterious group of bumps on their skin. You may notice that your horse is repeatedly rubbing itself against stall walls, or you may notice matted tufts of hair alongside unusually reddened skin.
With the hundreds of common equine skin problems, it can be very frustrating to try to identify your horse's symptoms and respond to their discomfort. You may ask: "What is causing this strange scaly skin?" "Where did these red bumps come from?" "How can I get my horse to stop rubbing its side?" "Is my horse at risk for infection?" "Is this contagious?"
To help you answer all of your questions about equine skin issues, we've created a condensed animal health encyclopedia that highlights each condition's symptoms, its causes, treatment ideas, and methods for prevention.
