Why Need To Treat Year Round

Spring:  Grass, weeds, leaf pollen increase
Summer: Flowering plants, weeds pour out pollen. Corn and soybean pollen peak.

This can cut back on snotty noses, constant antibiotics of secondary bacterial infections. The Vitamin E has also been proven in horses to increase immunity via immunoglobulin protection increased.
