Mud products and mud fever

Just as the flies vanish for winter, most horse owners prepare themselves for the next attack…and this time it’s from the mud. If your horse suffers with mud fever, the winter can be a really challenging time…but don’t worry…we have a great range of products that can support your horse when his skin is challenged during the winter months. Starting a management plan early can make a lot of difference and prevent mud fever from being a problem at all. Prevention is most definitely better than cure in the case of mud fever! We have a number of products designed to help, which we’ve listed below with a short description. Click on any of the product names and you’ll be taken to the website where there’s more information for you…

Mud Block Cream – an easy to apply cream which contains cetrimide, a powerful bacteriostat that helps protect the horse from the bacteria in the mud. It should be applied each day for best results.

The blend of ingredinets chosen supports and nourishes the skin from within, to help prevent issues caused by wet, muddy conditions.
