In today's article - we are going to take a bit closer look at racehorse bleeding and some of its treatments.
If you are a horse owner or a jockey, we can imagine the wretched feeling that you experience when your racehorse starts bleeding from its nose after a strenuous race. This blood loss from horses is actually induced by rigorous exercising.
There are several names for this condition, it is widely known as Exercise-Induced Pulmonary Hemorrhage (EIPH), bleeding attack or just simply bleeding. This usually refers to a condition where there is blood present in the horse's lungs or airways. The blood usually shows up as a nosebleed and can be quite dramatic. This usually correlates with rigorous exercising. The slang for horses that show signs of EIPH can be referred to as bleeders.
Racehorses are not the only type of horses that can experience these condition. Other horses used for equine sports such as polo and other equine sports that require exhausting exercises in a short burst. Think of it as a human being that runs short sprints, such as a soccer/football player. The short sprints and power burst required can easily injure both a human being or a horse if the pre-game or pre-race preparations are not well made. For humans beings it could be something as simple as proper stretching of the muscles before a game match. The proper stretching can both reduce or treat minor human muscle injuries. For sports horses however, things could get bit more complicated when it comes to preparation or treatments.
Here are some things that have been known to help horses that suffer from EIPH, i.e. Exercise Induced Pulmonary Haemorrhage.
Cinnamomum Chord Liquid: For bleeding conditions. For chronic/repeated problems, it may have to be used daily. Also used as a pre-race prevention remedy.
Mucosa Compositum Injections: Homotoxicological preparation for long term healing of the respiratory tract lining. When the mucous lining is strengthened, the horse is less likely to bleed.Has to be used for a period before the respiratory mucous can be improved.
Furosemide Lasix: A loop diuretic that increases urination frequency and increases urine production. This medication has been used on horses prior to raising for the past 30+ years.
Many believe this is a good way to reduce or even prevent bleeders. The time span of effectiveness is only about 3 to 4 hours as furosemide causes a plasma volume reduction. There is also a wide consensus by experts that Lasix reduces the blood pressure in the lungs which in turn causes less bleeding in bleeders. However there are different opinions on this medicine.
"An authoritative review by equine veterinary scientists Lawrence Soma and Cornelius Uboh published in the Journal of Veterinary Pharmacology and Therapeutics stated that the reduction in blood pressure in the lungs caused by Lasix is not sufficient in magnitude to prevent bleeds."
