Horse Supplements to Support Normal Sweating

The ability for horses to sweat normally is crucial for thermoregulation. Anhidrosis in horses often occurs in hot, humid climates and puts horses at risk of overheating or heat stroke.

If your horse has become a non-sweater, talk to your veterinarian about management strategies to help promote normal sweating and if anhidrosis supplements may be right for your horse.

Ingredients That May Support Healthy Sweating

Look for a supplement that contains ingredients such as:

  • Electrolytes: While your horse may not be losing minerals through sweat, electrolyte imbalances can still occur. Electrolyte supplements can help replenish important minerals (like chloride, magnesium, and potassium) that play a role in nerve and muscle function.
  • Salt: Sodium chloride can encourage your horse to drink and maintain proper hydration, which is crucial for overall health.
  • L-Tyrosine: An amino acid that may aid sweating by supporting the function of glands involved in temperature regulation.
  • Vitamins E & C: These antioxidants protect the body from stress caused by exercise, travel, and illness.
  • Vitamin B3 (Niacin): May help with cell protection and energy production.

Additional Tips for Non-Sweating Horses

  • If your veterinarian determines your horse's anhidrosis is stress-related, a low-sugar diet might be recommended.
  • Always consult your veterinarian before starting a new supplement to ensure it's suitable for your horse's individual needs.
