Herbs for Horses with the Snots
Is your young horse prone to the “Snots”, allergies from dust and mold, or producing excessive mucous when competing?
S’not a Problem is a blend of herbs for horses for horses traditionally used for young horses in training, to reduce mucous production and help the body fight infections. It provides herbal support for the respiratory system while encouraging a healthy immune system. Excessive mucous can indicate dust, mold or airborne allergies and impede performance and durability during racing, especially in the horse that competes heavily with high respirations.
Snot a Problem herbs have been used to improve circulation and encourage the small tuberoles in the lungs to gently drain excess fluid and reduce sinus discomfort by reducing swelling and inflammation. Consult your vet if problem looks serious or doesn't go away. Can be beneficial for:
- Reducing mucus production
- Fighting infection
- Reducing the Snots in horses that are reactive to environmental irritants or race stress causing mucous production
- Building immune system and strengthening the blood
- Healing the respiratory system, lessening scar tissue, and reducing the risk of bleeding or EIPH when performing
- Improving digestion, ridding the stomach of inflammation and acidity
- Moving stagnant chi or "fire" in the stomach to eliminate bacteria from the body
- Young Horses in training, new to the barn, when the "Snots" go through the barn, keep your young horse healthy blend
