My farrier who is also my vet and dentist (soo nice!) was out doing my horses feet and Hank has been getting bumps on him. I thought they were just swollen bits from the danged horse flies out here but he's been getting more. He said Hank had hives. He gave him a shot to help it and prescribed some powder to put on his food every twelve hours. I think it was the fly spray we were using...is this a possibility? I discontinued the use of that spray and bought the bronco kind which he's been fine with before.
I really need to ride Hank because ever since I got another (younger) barrel horse for christmas I just don't have time for him...the only problem is is that he has some bumps right on his girth spot..
Is there anything else I can do to get them to go away along with the medication my vet gave me?
