Resources for Caring for Horses Exposed to Wildfire Smoke

Devonwood during fire season

Oregon and the entire West Coast are experiencing unprecedented wildfires and smoke-filled air. Our horses’ delicate respiratory systems are susceptible to damage from exposure to poor-quality air, especially older horses and those with equine asthma. The following are resources we’ve gathered for ODS members to help you take care of your horses during these challenging times:

If you are concerned about your horse’s respiratory health, please contact your veterinarian. Take care everyone!

New ODS Member Benefit!

All ODS members will now receive a complimentary digital subscription to The Horse: Your Guide to Equine Health Care.

The HorseI have the best job for a horse-nut like me—for the past nine years I’ve worked as digital managing editor of The Horse: Your Guide to Equine Health and TheHorse.com. Now, as ODS vice president, I’m excited that my company has agreed to offer all ODS members complimentary subscriptions to the digital edition of our monthly magazine (a value of $20 per year) as an ODS member benefit. This is at no cost to you or ODS, and you will not be placed on any solicitation or marketing lists. ODS respects and protects your personal data.

The Horse is a monthly magazine packed with premium horse health and industry-related articles. Our in-depth content in each issue is curated by The Horse’s editorial team and reviewed by a board of American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) veterinarians, so you know you can always count on relevant and current information about your horse’s care. The digital edition of The Horse has all the same equine health news and information as the monthly print publication, but in an eco-friendly format.

You will receive an email at the address you’ve provided to ODS about how to claim your subscription. If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at vicepresident@oregondressage.com.
