Equine viruses are quite common and range from mild to severe. One of the most prevalent viruses affecting horses is equine herpesvirus (EHV). You have probably heard of EHV before and already know a thing or two about this virus, but in this post, we are going to elaborate it further. What is the role of bioresonance in the treatment of EHV or rhinopneumonitis? Keep reading to find out.
What is equine herpesvirus?
Herpes virus is a large family of viruses that most mammalian species can develop. Equine herpesvirus (EHV), also known as equine rhinopneumonitis is a highly infectious virus that attacks horses worldwide. Currently, there are nine known EHVs, but EHV-1 and EHV-4 infect the respiratory tract, and they are spread via the nose to nose contact, contaminated equipment such as water buckets, and respiratory secretions within stalls or stables. EHV-1 and EHV-4 are also spread by contact with aborted fetuses, placental and fetal fluids, and placenta.
Similarly to herpesviruses of other species, equine herpesvirus establishes latent infection in most horses which become asymptomatic carriers. These horses could experience reactivation of EHV-1 or EHV-4, which results in replication in specific white cell elements in the blood. Pregnant mares can abort when the virus is activated.
What are the symptoms of the herpes virus?
EHV-1 is a highly prevalent pathogen in horse populations worldwide, and over 60% of viruses are latently infected. Horses become infected within the first year of their life, and this cannot be inhibited by current vaccines. While symptoms may vary, most horses experience the following:
- A fever occurring suddenly and lasts between one and seven days
- Constipation followed by diarrhea
- Intermittent serous nasal discharge
- Occasionally edema in legs
- Congestion of nasal mucosa and conjunctivae
- Submaxillary lymph nodes slightly enlarged
- Decreased fitness performance
- Weakness in hind legs
- Strange gait
It’s also useful to mention that neurological issues may occur such as paralysis or uncoordinated body movements, seizures, inability to stand up, among others.
Neonatal foals infected in the uterus are usually sick from birth and exhibit the following symptoms:
- Respiratory distress, stridor, pneumonia
- Nasal discharge (the most common sign of disease in old foals)
The incubation period is the time it takes for an animal to display symptoms of the virus after being infected. The average incubation period for EHV is four to seven days, but in some cases, it can take three to eight days or even 14 in some horses.
How can bioresonance help with equine herpesvirus?
When it comes to equine herpesvirus due to the fact it is an infective agent, there is no cure, but veterinarians only focus on supportive care. Herpesviruses tend to remain in the horse’s body and reappear at any time. Vets may also prescribe antibiotics to treat secondary infections that occur while the immune system of a horse is trying to fight off the infection. Anti-inflammatory drugs may also be given for this purpose. However, these treatments are not quite adequate. They do not take care of the disease itself, but only work to minimize the damage. It is needless to mention that antibiotics and other drugs for horses can also induce all sorts of side effects and cause more problems than they aim to solve.
Bioresonance is an ideal treatment option for horse owners who want their animals to recover and become healthier in a natural way, without pain, side effects, and other unwanted scenarios.
Only a few sessions are necessary to help the horse recover and regain their strength and mobility. As you are already aware, bioresonance works by correcting negative frequencies which disturb communication between healthy cells. In this case, bioresonance device can alter negative frequencies that prevent the horse’s body from defending itself against the virus. As the immune system strengths, the horse is able to fight off the disease in a more effective manner. This shows that bioresonance, unlike conventional treatment approaches, doesn’t just mask the symptoms, but it works on a deeper level and equips the horse with positive frequencies for a healthier life.
Equine herpesvirus is a common problem that affects the vast majority of horses. Some horses do not exhibit any sign or symptom of EHV while others do. Consequences of rhinopneumonitis and other complications caused by EHV can be quite severe.
Traditional treatment is all about managing symptoms to make them more tolerable. Bioresonance is more effective than that. It corrects negative frequencies to allow the horse’s immune system to withstand the disease in a painless manner in a few sessions only. Horse owners should definitely consider bioresonance to address EHV and prevent complications associated with it.
