Treatment can only be successful if the condition is diagnosed in time. The sooner the lead poisoning has been recognized the better your horse’s chances of recovery are. The usual method of treatment for this condition is through the administration of calcium disodium edentate. When administered with the help of an intravenous tube it has been known to remove lead from a horse’s body in less than a week, usually in about four to five days. Follow through on any further treatment that your veterinarian prescribes.
It is important to locate the source of the lead poisoning and eliminate it so that you and your horse will not have repeat problems with it.
