DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Shake well before use. Always patch test an area first and wait 48 hours. If a reaction occurs stop use immediately. Spray evenly over the required areas taking care not to saturate as this may cause irritation, a little goes a long way. Brush through manes and tails after application to ensure hair is covered. Allow to dry before turning horse or pony out. Reapply every seven days or as necessary depending on mud conditions. Do not use under boots or rugs. Do not use on broken, sore or bare skin. Always patch test an area first and wait 48 hours. If a reaction occurs stop use immediately.
Mud fever can be prevented by keeping your horse clean and dry and treating any cuts and grazes as soon as they occur. However, we don’t live in a perfect world, so most horses are exposed to muddy and wet conditions over winter.
The key to preventing mud fever is to prevent prolonged mud contact, minimise skin trauma and maintain healthy skin & a healthy immune system.
Preventing prolonged mud contact
Where horses are turned out in wet and muddy conditions paddock boots can be used to protect the legs from mud. However, they need careful attention to prevent rubbing and skin trauma. Instead use Nettex Barrier Cream which helps protect skin from mud and also has antibacterial and moisturising properties to keep skin supple and in great condition.
The next generation of protection from mud are barrier sprays. Nettex Seven Day Mud Away acts in the same way as a barrier cream, but is easier to apply. Nettex Seven Day Mud Away prevents mud sticking to the coat allowing quick removal by simple brushing. Application is required only once a week and it provides an effective barrier against mud meaning less washing of legs in the winter and making management much simpler.
Maintaining healthy skin and a healthy immune system will mean that your horse will be less likely to suffer from mud fever. Good general healthcare and ensuring that your horse has a balanced diet are essential. Feeding an oil that has high levels of essential fatty acids will improve skin and coat condition. Nettex Linseed Oil is ideal as it contains high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to benefit the skin.
