How long will it take for my horse's hives to go away? My trainer said the horses get them whenever it rains heavily. Has your horse ever had hives? Did they go away within a week?

It depends. I've had a horse that got hives alot and I bought a salve, and it made them fade within a week, but Im not sure how long it would take without treating them

Thanks, they are not bad or anything, just like a select few on his butt. My mom said she didn't even notice them. But if they get bad I'm going to buy something for them.

My mare used to get hives all the time just randomly and my vet told me to bathe her in apple cider vinegar or white vinegar, sounds weird but it worked and it was gone, not to mention it also keeps away flies and mosquitoes! So you might want to try that.
