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:
- UC Davis Guidelines for Horses Exposed to Wildfire Smoke
- Smoke From Wildfires and Horse Respiratory Health
- Smoke Inhalation and Horses
- Wildfire Season and Feeding Horses for Lung Health
If you are concerned about your horse’s respiratory health, please contact your veterinarian. Take care everyone!
