Another Equine Allergy Treatment?

I’m starting to think horse.com has gotten inside my head.  They sent me an article this morning, Researchers Developing Immunotherapeutic IBH Treatment by Christa Leste-Lassere.

In summary, scientists are cloning biting bugs (gnats, midges, etc) in order to produce enough of these irritants to create allergin specific immunotherapy for horses affected by it…like Kobi.

Who knows how long it will take or how much it will cost once they get it working…in the meantime, we continue to use our miracle cure, Killitch!

About Heather Hamel

Growing up with horses is a little girls dream come true. Heather’s dream in life was to be a horse trainer - how dreams change - sort of! She moved to the wonderfully historic town of St. Augustine, Florida and was a historic tour guide and a ghost story teller while putting herself through college to become a special education teacher. After graduating, she felt the pull of horses in her life again. That's when she met Kobi! She learned quickly that when you own horses you become a part time vet, part time nutritionist, and full time equestrian. She wouldn't change a thing! In addition to being completely obsessed with her herd, she still teaches and tutors students with learning disabilities, and more specifically, dyslexia.
