It is really important to make sure that you examine your horse’s skin carefully after the clipping process.
Very often sarcoids that were not visible prior to clipping suddenly become very obvious once the horse’s coat has been removed – just as had happened in the attached photo.
During the Winter and Spring is a great time to treat sarcoids, and well before the dreaded fly season starts.
Remember – sarcoids grow over the Winter, so they may not have been visible in the Autumn.
Please be vigilant and monitor your horses carefully.
If in any doubt, please contact your veterinary surgeon who can refer your horse’s case to us through our website by clicking here
