Donkey Health Tip – MUD

If your donkey is laying in mud be sure to get the mud off when it drys. Why? Mud has the potential to give sores to equine. The best way to remove the dirt and mud is a brush in the winter. Be gentle around the eyes and ears.

Like people donkeys, horses and mules can have allergies. It is best to find a vet who can help you with allergies. Allergies are difficult to treat. But we can do our best to help our equine stay comfortable. Rio our Mammoth donkey developed spring and summer allergies in 2016. Rio was 10 years old when the allergies started. His eyes weep and he rubs his face leaving sores on his nose. My horse has had allergies since I purchased her as a filly age 20 months. Just like people animals can have allergies.
