The War Against Mud Fever


Horse Owners in the UK are well accustomed to long, dark winters bringing cold wet conditions. If that wasn't bad enough, horse owners also have to be on guard against the threat of mud fever through the soggy, muddy months of winter. The increasingly wet weather has seen fields turn to a muddy sludge, with grass disappearing under a thick bog of wet mud. As inconvenient as this is, it also increases the chance of your horse getting mud fever. This can cause pain and illness for your horse and it needs to be recognised, treated and prevented through the winter months.

Read our article 'The War Against Mud Fever' which includes a list of treatments and preventions for mud fever.

If you have any tips or suggestions on how to combat mud fever please add them to our forum discussion.
