Skin and Sweet Itch
All sorts of things, from seasonal irritations to a weak immune system, can result in troublesome, uncomfortable skin conditions in horses.
One of the most common skin ailments is Sweet Itch (pruritus), which if not treated timeously can lead to the horse damaging itself with biting, rubbing or scratching, and in severe cases refusing to tolerate tack or a rider.
An itchy skin has various causes, from lice and midges to infections and allergies.
In our quest to keep horses happy we have sourced a selection of supplements in syrup or powder form from top equine manufacturers to make sure your horse does not suffer the unpleasant and ugly consequences of skin disease and damage.
