Queensland Itch Cause
👨🏻🔬🔬🐴 Allergies are an exaggerated reaction by the body due to an imbalanced response from the immune system.
🍃Environmental factors initiate the immune response and in the case of QUEENSLAND ITCH the allergic response is due to the proteins in the saliva of midges, which in turn inflames and irritates the horse’s skin/coat.
😄To help reduce the irritation and inflammatory response naturally, check to see if your horse has adequate amounts of Omega 3 in their diet.
🔹CEN Oil is a trusted high quality source of Omega 3 for horses and will help reduce irritation due to the anti-inflammatory properties.
🔹CEN XtraBalance is another great product for horses suffering QLD Itch as it strengthens the gut health and removes toxins, promoting a stronger immune system. Also the organic humates enhance nutrient absorption, especially protein, fatty acids, biotin, zinc and copper which all help improve skin/coat quality and condition.
