    Just brought Bailey home from the boarders 3 weeks ago. Bailey developed this rash on her nose while she was boarded and now it has spread in crevasses, back, legs eyes etc. We have bathed, treated her repeatedly. Any one have any opinions on what this could be? We did have a biopsy today at...

    My horse developed a skin infection after a 3 day trailer ride to get from Ontario to Saskatchewan last April (2014). After a vet visit and skin scraping the results were inconclusive, many different bacteria present. The vet gave him a shot to repress his immune system and I was given a cream...

    So a few days ago I noticed my horse had a small hairless spot on his forehead, but i didn't think much of it. I figured he probably just rubbed it or something. But today the spot was much bigger. Its about the size of my palm and under the right side of his forelock. It doesn't seem to itch or...

    My 6 year old paint has become sick that past few weeks. She has lost quite a bit of weight and her skin is literally coming off in large strips, as if she has been skinned. It only seems to have affected her in the areas of her white fur. We've had two vets come out and the last one "guessed"...

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could give me any info on what could be causing little pieces of hair to disappear from my horses neck, and result in tiny black patches of skin?? He is rugged full time and is a show horse so this is very annoying as they stand out a lot!! Will appreciate any...

    Has anyone used an anti-fungal moisturizer lotion called Equiderma Skin Lotion? My horse has some bare areas on his face around his nose, cheeks, and behind his ears, and he seems itchy when I take the bridle off. He is always very clean around his face, and there are no scabs or other clues...

    Dear Horse Forum friends My horse Poco has these odd bumps under his fur and at first they didn't hurt him but now he's really sensitive to them. He only has them in one spot and they are about the size of a quarter. Any idea what it is??? Please help I am worried about my Poco!

    My cat is 14 now and starting to feel her age! I was wondering whether some sort of olive/ veg or fish oil (which one would be best?) would help her with her weight and skin condition. She has never eaten well; has been a fussy eater all her life and doesn't eat enough. Her skin is looking a...

    I think my horse has Photosensitization. I haven't had a vet look at it yet. What do you guys think? Does anyone have any experience with this? I like to treat conditions with home remedies whenever possible, any ideas?

    My mare was extremely dry and flakey for a while and her legs became scabby. After doing some research, it sounds a lot like ringworm (it isn't rainrot for sure). I buzzed her down in case of it being ringworm so that there's nothing for the fungus to feed off of and I began treating her today...

    My 9yr old mare paint has the weird wrinkles on both of her upper shoulder areas. They are firm wrinkles, not soft or loose. They do have some minor scabbing on the ridges, but nothing major. She does itch at them occasionally, but she seems to itch everywhere during these summer months. I've...

She has raised bumps in this area that are EXTREMELY itchy, and when i rub her on this rash, her hair comes...

    Okay so. when i first got my filly, about a month after i found 2 spots on her side. On her barrel. They were tiny , like the size of a pimple, but its like a scab. You can pick the top off if you scratch it. Just like a scab. It doesn't bother her, other than being itchy. But doesn't really...

    Hi all, I’m wondering if anyone from the Discussion Forum might have experienced anything similar with their horses to some of the symptoms my horse is exhibiting below. My vet is coming to look at him tomorrow to check him out and potentially biopsy or draw blood. But in the mean time, any and...

    I had someone on here suggest ACV for my horse because he has a couple bald spots for old bumps and I was HOPING someone would know how to get the hair to regrow. So I did a lot of researching and reading up on it and have found LOTS and LOTS of great feed back on it and also all the benefits...

    What can I use/do to stimulate hair growth in those little bald spots? There is a small one on his face near his halter. He must have bumped his face or something a while back and I would like to help it fill back in if I can. He also has a dry patch on his face/nose where it looks like...

    I have a paint who just loves to roll in the mud. You can brush him until he's spotless and as soon as he gets back in the pasture he rolls. I have been noticing a lot of large lumps and scabs on him lately. I called the vet out and he says that these lumps are from my horse being dirty. i brush...

    I've just bought a nine month old Shetland cross and the fathers breed was unknown. Mini has pink skin but around her lips she has black spots and she also has black spots under her tail . . . does this mean that she might have an appy colour when she gets older? Right now she is a dark fluffy...
