Sometimes in horse diseases, it is hard to tell if your horse is suffering from general hair loss or something which may need a veterinarian’s opinion. Sometimes when using nutritional supplements, allergic reactions can occur such as hives, bumps or scabs. Horse diseases such as microsporum ringworm can start as alopecia with no scabs and will need a culture done for proper diagnosis. The general rule about any hot area on the body (horse diseases) is most likely an infection and should not be ruled out when caring for hair loss symptoms.
