Nightshade Poisoning in Horses

Treatment

 

A compound called neostigmine counteracts the effects of atropine. In addition to administration of this drug, supportive care is required. Activated charcoal should be given orally and a veterinarian should administer IV fluids.

 

Living and Management

 

If you are aware of nightshade plants growing on your property or in locations that are accessible to your horse, it is best to eradicate these plants from the vicinity.
