Runny nose, fever, cough, fatigue. Infectious upper respiratory disease can have significant consequences for our horses’ health and come in several forms. The most common causes in the horse include equine influenza virus (EIV), equine herpesvirus (EHV) – also known as rhino – and Streptococcus equi subspecies equi (S. equi) – better known as strangles. In a nationwide surveillance study by Merck Animal Health, equine influenza and equine herpesvirus type 4 (EHV-4) are diagnosed more frequently than strangles and equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1).

After just a mile of riding, your horse creates enough warmth to boil 2 whole gallons of water. While a horse’s body can usually regulate their temperature, the hot summer months make this more difficult. High temperatures, high humidity, lack of air movement, poor ventilation, and dehydration all increase the dangers of a serious heat-related problem known as heat stress.
