Theoretically, yes. The mites don’t live for long off the animal. If you can move the horse to a clean area for three days, sterilize grooming equipment, and get rid of all the mites on the horse it should remain clear of mites. However, vectors such as birds, mice, bats and other animals can spread them. All horses in that area are probably harboring them, whether they cause disease or not.

Is it possible to get rid of the mites that cause leg problems in draft horses so I can stop treating them? ultima modifica: 2018-09-06T15:38:20-04:00 da Administrator
