Give RAO the Old Heave-Ho!

Does your horse often cough at the beginning of your ride? Does he or she also have some nasal discharge and labored breathing? Your horse could be suffering from Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO), or heaves, a disease that affects a horse’s lungs, making it difficult for the horse to breathe when exposed to allergens.

Horse heaves is chronic and can’t be cured, but catching it early can make it more manageable and possibly mitigate damage to the horse’s lungs. If your horse was diagnosed with heaves and you are looking for a product that can help them breathe easier, let Springtime Supplements assist!
