Horse Veterinary Questions? Ask an Equine Vet.
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question. I am so sorry to hear about Reno's condition...I know how frustrating this can be...
I have had good results giving Benadryl at 0.5 mg per pound every 12 hrs to decrease the scratching. The scratching makes this much worse causing a secondary pyoderma that causes these crusts and discharge. Treat these areas with Betadine which will dry iup these areas so the bacteria cannot grow and medicated baths to remove these crusts.
If this is not enough Azium powder that you can get form your vet will help to stop the effects of the allergies and help your sweet Reno past this, even in this heat. It is worth a try....
Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
Good for you...it is certainly worth a try....good luck!!
