Uckele Health & Nutrition has sent relief for horses affected by the catastrophic Louisiana flooding, which has damaged or destroyed 60,700 homes and affected more than 102,000 people and countless animals.  In response to the devastation, generous supplies of Zephyr’s Garden skin rescue salves, liniments, poultices and sprays will arrive Saturday to help Louisiana’s flood-affected horses.  These horses are experiencing cellulitis, dermatitis and various wounds and lacerations caused by water submersion. 

“We care deeply about the people and the horses being affected by this devastating emergency,” says Kevin Isley, VP of Sales. “We’re very thankful we are able to offer much-needed topical products for stranded, lost or suffering horses impacted by the flooding.”

Uckele’s Zephyr’s Garden products are being shipped in conjunction with medical supplies being donated by Hagyard Equine Medical Institute.  Hagyard, based in Lexington, Kentucky, is one of the oldest and largest veterinary facilities in the world.  A full semi is being donated by Brook Ledge Horse Transportation.  The supplies will ship directly to Louisiana State University Veterinary Hospital to help the volunteers care for the horses being rescued.

To assist with the rescuing and sheltering of animals, cash donations to the Louisiana State Animal Rescue Team can be made at  https://lvma.org/LVMA/LSART_Donations.aspx.  Cash donations also can be made to the AAEP Foundation's disaster relief fund: https://www4.my-secure-checkout.com/AAEPFo…/information.php.
