Boe and Kiddo started Salt Therapy this week having their inital 3 sessions.
🐴 Boe who is only 1 yrs old, the youngest I have ever treat was an absolute dream and took it all in his stride, I was called to treat him due to his itchy skin. From the photos taken you can see the diffrence from Day 2 (marks in his coat where he was biting at his skin, he was itching every couple of minutes) and Day 3 (not a mark on him only touching his side with his nose twice throughout the whole session).
🐴 Kiddo has recently been diagnosed with Asthma due to an increased recovery rate after exercise. On the third day of Salt Therapy his owner lunged him and his recovery was normal. I look forward to hearing how they both go in the next couple of weeks. www.katiebfrisby.co.uk/salt-therapy ... See MoreSee Less
"When will winter end and spring appear?" said Lewis.
It may look pretty but its very icy under foot and its only set to get worse, with temperatures dipping to -3 with a wind chill of -7. It will be all hands on deck over the next few days to keep all horses safe, warm and access to water as it will keep freezing up. Sometimes having them stay in for a few days is the safest thing to do.

Salt therapy Top up sessions this week--
🐴 Piggy suffers from allergies, that affect his breathing. He has regular sessions to keep on top of these allergies and to help keep his lungs and airways clear. He hasn't coughed for a long time which is great and the only time his owner sees discharge is the day before the top ups has been booked in for, which shows why regular sessions are essential for Piggys health, discharge will be seen for a few days after his session as the salt clears his lungs.
🐴 Nellie - regular sessions again to keep on top of stable and dust allergies, Nellie has regular sessions with me, every time after her sessions when walking back up to her field she will always give a good blow out and clear her nose.
🐴 Mr Woo - no sign of the cough he had before starting Salt Therapy. Skin Conditions are being kept on top of with regular sessions
🐴 Rocky - suffers from COPD, his inital 3 sessions really helped with his breathing, top up sessions had to stop for a few months due to the generator being broken, so his cough did come back, he will receive regular sessions now to get back on top of symptoms and get him feeling better.
🐴 Solo - cough has stopped and she is doing really well and enjoys her sessions while eating her tea.
🐴 Misty - Her cough has just started to come back after not having salt therapy for a few months so a top up session was needed to clear those lungs again. ... See MoreSee Less
How does Salt Therapy work? The science..
🌟 BREATHING / RESPIRATORY
Medical grade salt is made into a vapour that is dispersed into the air. This is simply breathed in and inhaled deeply, right down into the small airways of the lungs. It reduces the stickiness of mucus and stimulates the movement of the cilia (micro-hairs) within the lungs allowing the mucus to be transported up and out of the lungs easier. This reduces inflammation, bacteria and allergens within the lung tissue and airways creating a more efficient breathing system.
Some of the salt microparticles that are dispersed into the air fall onto the skin. The particles permeate into the epidermis of your horse’s skin, absorb oils, and reduce the frequency of irritating skin conditions. The natural antibacterial properties of salt can prevent the development of bacteria and help normalize the skin’s pH level and improves skin microcirculation.
Salt therapy has been shown to:
🐴 Improve cardiovascular performance by:
improving lung function
increasing oxygen capacity
clearing mucus and being an effective decongestant
killing harmful bacteria in the respiratory system
improving performance and stamina
raise energy levels and reducing recovery time
🐴 Improve and relieving respiratory conditions such as
IAO (inflammatory or allergic airways disease),
heaves or COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease)
🐴 Promote the coat condition and improve skin conditions such as
fungal and non-fungal dermatitis
🐴 Improve immunity and inflammatory responses which
reduces inflammation and swelling within the tissues
improves overall well being of the horse
supports horses that are sensitive to environmental allergies
supports horses to combat infections
helps a horse recover from mineral salt depletion
