Allergy Attack!

For the majority of horses and ponies the summer months bring hours of enjoying the sunshine and increased time out at pasture, however some unfortunate equines suffer from the ill effects of allergies during this time. This can lead to conditions such as heaves, sweet itch, headshaking, or hives as a result of increased pollen and insects. An owners responsibility, in this instance, is to provide a safe, healthy environment within the stable offering our equines respite from their ailments. 

Equine allergies can be extremely debilitating, causing skin lesions, dry and itchy skin, breathing conditions and behavioural problems such as headshaking. In order to protect your horse from a summer allergy the best mechanism is often stabling your horse during peak times for pollen and insects. This allows you to provide a healthy, safe and relaxing haven for your horse or pony.    

Nedz provides the ideal bedding solution for the summer months and the high quality formulations are ideal for those suffering from allergies. The natural bedding combines technological advances and innovations with traditional chopped straw allowing you to keep your equine’s stable clean, fresh and encourage peak health. The natural approach that Nedz take also means horse owners can rest assured that there is nothing included that could harm, or irritate a sensitive equine.

Nedz Original and Nedz Pro both utilise the exclusive organic Natural Nedz formula. Combining a unique blend of Manuka and Cade Oil, Natural Nedz offers anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic properties, all of which contribute to minimise the presence of allergens in the environment. Alongside protecting the skin and limiting the risk of hygiene issues, Natural Nedz also helps to discourage insects and bugs allowing your horse to rest and relax in peace when stabled.
