Kidney Inflammation in Horses



Treatment will vary based on the extent of the infection, the overall health of the horse, the strength of its immune system, and a variety of other factors. Normally, nephritis can be treated with a long course of antibiotics specifically designed to treat this type of infection. In addition, potentiated sulphonamides – bacterial inhibitors – can also be used to treat this infection and to prevent further infection of the body as well.


Living and Management


Because of the potential for a fatal outcome, it is important to pay close attention to all of the instructions your veterinarian provides you with. All prescriptions should be administered in their entirety, especially those that are for antibiotic treatment as they are prescribed in certain amounts for a reason: to cure infection and to prevent reinfection.
