There is an old saying called "Prevention is better than cure" that has been around for a long time, and strengthening the immune system does just that!

A strong immune system is important for a horse’s overall health. The immune system works when a virus, bacteria, parasite, or even allergen gets into the body. It recognizes them as “foreign” and deploys an aggressive attack until the threat is neutralized.

However, different stressors can weaken the immune system.

These stressors include:

  • Bad Nutrition. A horse needs a combination of minerals such as Zinc, copper, cobalt, selenium, manganese, Calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium to keep their immune systems strong and healthy.
  • Age. The immune system of young horses is still in the process of maturing and developing while the immune systems of old horses get weakened with aging.
  • Diseases and viruses. Some pathogens and physical conditions can also affect horses’ immune systems, including the West Nile Virus, Rabies, Tetanus, Strangles, Influenza, and eastern and western encephalomyelitis.
  • Other factors. that can weaken the immune system include moderate to high levels of physical activity, Injury recovery, frequent travel, and weather changes.

So, what can you do to overcome such issues?

Good nutrition goes a long way in supporting the horse’s immune system! You can give your horse access to adlib forage, a balanced diet, and unrestricted access to clean water for sustaining and supporting a strong immune system.
