Lice infestations are very common during the winter months, particularly in horses and ponies with
thick winter coats. They can be separated into two varieties; bloodsucking (Haematopinus asini)and
biting lice (Damalinia equ
i). The sucking louse is generally the bigger of the two and is found mainly in longer hair, for example the mane, tail and feather
region. The biting louse tends to live closer to the skin and can therefore be harder to spot. These lice are generally found along the back and sides of the horse.
Both types of lice are extremely irritating to the horse, which may rub or bite itself, causing sores or quite major skin damage. Heavy infestations will cause hair loss and the sucking type may consume enough blood to cause anaemia in the horse.
Lice are extremely contagious and are generally transmitted by direct con-tact between horses, however can survive for a few days in rugs, groom-ing brushes and tack, so may be spread in this manner.
Historically treatment of lice involved various shampoos and louse powder, however they tended to
have little long-term efficacy and were therefore often disappointing. Products containing Permethrin,
such as Switch
have been found to be very effective in killing the lice and if used again four weeks
later will kill off any hatching larvae. It is also important to treat rugs and numnahs by washing them or
using a louse powder on them. Please speak to one of the vets if you want advice on lice treatments.
