Equine Mud Guard Protection
Protect your horse’s legs from mud fever, rain scold, scabs, cracked heels and the effects of a wet, muddy environment with Equine Mudguard, the Antibacterial waterproof barrier. Apply Equine Mudguard before turnout to dry legs to prevent softening of skin, or apply to infected areas to help speed the healing process.
Our climate is getting wetter, which causes more problems for our horses’ legs. The constant immersion in wet mud makes the skin soften (a bit like us when we’ve been in the bath too long), the legs become vulnerable. As the legs plunge in and out of wet gritty mud, this abrasive action causes little lesions in the skin; dirt and bacteria get in, and infection begins.
Equine Mudguard not only provides a waterproof barrier, preventing the skin from becoming softened by the damp, but will aid the natural healing process if the skin is already damaged and your horse has mud fever.
Equine Mudguard contains natural ingredients, which are both effective and gentle on the skin. The two active ingredients are:
- Tea Tree Oil: One of the most powerful anti-fungal and anti-bacterial natural treatments available. Helps to keep your horse protected from potential infection.
- Flowers of Sulphur: a bright yellow powder distilled from natural deposits of the mineral. A well-known homeopathic remedy for skin disorders and is anti-septic and anti-fungal
