The Horse is celebrating National Skin Care Awareness Month, which is held each September, by bringing you up-to-date information about skin disease, treatment, and management.’s awareness month is sponsored by Kinetic Vet.

Horse skin issues range from flaky dandruff to sweet itch to deadly dermatitis (yes, scratches can go that wrong!). If you’ve ever managed any of these skin conditions, you know how frustrating they can be, and how miserable they can make your poor, itchy horse.

To help you out, we’ll be posting skin care and research articles throughout September. Look for skin-related content all month on, our Facebook page and Twitter feed, and in our e-newsletters.
