Vet Advice: Mud Fever Management

Paragon Veterinary Group - EquineBritish weather means rainy days are a typical feature of winter and early spring, resulting in our horses and ponies spending more time standing in the mud when they are turned out. Mud fever is a common finding in these situations, so it is hardly surprising that a recent study by the Blue Cross Equine Charity found that mud fever accounted for 40% of skin disease in horses. Mud fever is a non-contagious (meaning it does not pass from horse to horse) skin condition that causes for irritation, pain, and scabs to form on the lower limbs of horses. In more severe cases, swelling and lameness of the affected limbs can occur. The most frequently affected areas are the back of the pastern, between the fetlock and the hoof. Understanding how to prevent and manage the condition can make a big difference.

New Research Into Equestrian Body Protection Delivers Surprising Results

FOMO FAZE Body ProtectorFOMO, the company behind FAZE, one of the UK's newest body protectors, has just released the first findings in a study into body protection for the equestrian market.
FOMO was awarded an Innovate UK SMART Grant in October 2019 and spent 15 months completing a feasibility study on particular named technologies, working alongside thought leaders, including the University of Edinburgh, to determine ‘life-like’ test methods for assessing each technology.
The company was founded in 2016 by Carmen Cummiskey, an experienced equestrian and a graduate in Sports Engineering from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow. Throughout her development of FAZE, Carmen was always of the belief that the best balance of performance and comfort would not be achieved with the use of a single technology and that the combined characteristics of complementary technological solutions would be needed to achieve a step change.

Blue Cross Call To Ditch New Year's Eve Fireworks

Blue Cross Call To Ditch New Year's Eve FireworksBlue Cross is urging people not to let off any fireworks on New Year's Eve, as horse owners reveal the extent of suffering they cause in a recent survey.
As a difficult year for everyone comes to a close, it is understandable the British public may be wanting to celebrate new hope for 2021 this winter and for some, that might include letting off fireworks in their garden or private fields.
However, the animal charity is asking people to think about horses and pets this New Year’s Eve and resist the temptation to use loud fireworks, which we know terrifies many of the animals we share our lives with.
Blue Cross surveyed horse owners in early December and found that there were high levels of concern in the equine community about the impact on their horses and the difficulty in predicting when the fireworks may be let off in order to try and plan ahead. (1)
