Side Effects of Inflammation

Injuries, trauma, and foreign/toxic substances can cause your horse’s body to respond with inflammation. When a horse’s body reacts to these factors, enzymes are released to trigger white blood cells to remove the toxin, clean the site of dying tissue, and promote healing. This process is an important mechanism to defend the body but typically results in uncomfortable side effects including swelling, redness, heat, pain, or loss of function in severe cases. If not treated immediately, this can adversely impact equine health. 

Horses can suffer basic allergies and even more serious inflammatory diseases such as laminitis, arthritis, asthma, cancer, and more. Therefore, it is critical to find the cause and treat it before it runs rampant. 

How to Treat Inflammation with Wild Gold’s Camelina Oil

In acute situations, inflammation can be treated with anti-inflammatory drugs and steroids which help horses fight dangerous side effects of inflammation. However, in the long term, drugs and steroids can cause their own negative side effects. Wild Gold’s Camelina Oil can be a great natural and sustainable alternative to help prevent inflammation in advance and alleviate pain and uncomfortable side effects. 

Camelina Oil contains a balanced amount of Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids that are essential in regulating the body’s inflammatory response. Since inflammation is a natural reaction to irritants or injuries, Camelina Oil does not fix the root cause of the issue but supports the body in alleviating the agitation. It also prevents excessive inflammatory responses that can damage the body. Besides treating inflammation, Wild Gold’s Camelina Oil can help horses improve their overall health by boosting endurance and recovery and strengthening the immune system

Wild Gold’s camelina oil can be added to feed daily in a supplement of 1-2 ounces. Shop our equine camelina oil supplements as well as other products here.
