Mud Fever

YOUR PARTNER IN ANIMAL HEALTHCARE+

Mok is a collective name for all kinds of skin irritations and inflammations on the lower legs of a horse. The condition can be very painful and even cause permanent problems if not treated properly. Mok is most common in the form of inflammation or irritation in the pastern cavity. Mok usually starts with sensitive, red skin, after which wounds form that form scabs. Thickened skin in the pastern cavity, itching of the leg, a warm, thick leg, and fever are several symptoms that can indicate mug. A distinction is made between dry and wet mugs. With a dry mug, fissures appear, while with a wet mug wound exudate comes out of the blisters. When that exudate dries, it can cause thick scabs.”
