Step 1 Cleanse – Antibacterial Cleanser
This specifically formulated cleanser is both gentle and extremely effective. Unlike pure chlorhexidine products, which can increase sensitivity and pain to the horse, our Antibacterial Cleanser is pH neutral making it kind to skin. This gentle cleanser combines antibacterial agents with soothing properties of herbal extracts which allow it to effectively soften and lift scabs. Essential oils aid the recovery of skin by calming irritated, sore, damaged areas.

Step 2 Relieve- Soothing Balm
A concentrated antifungal and antibacterial moisturising balm that effectively soothes and relieves irritated skin whilst also offering protection. This specialist balm soothes and helps the healing process by keeping the skin supple and moisturised. The specially selected essential oils help to promote healthy skin condition meaning the affected area can breathe freely and heal correctly in the most beneficial environment.

Step 3 Protect – Protective Salve Barrier
A specifically formulated antibacterial salve containing natural mineral greases and citronella. It forms a waterproof barrier protecting skin from bacterial infection brought on by skin invasive pathogens, which are present in wet and muddy conditions. This salve is also excellent for use on cuts, grazes or when an open wound which cannot be stitched requires antibacterial protection.

The ultimate winter skin protection kit using a simple 1-2-3 process to aid in the management and subsequent prevention of mud fever.

Mud fever is an aggressive bacterial condition that can affect the lower limbs of horses and ponies. The condition was previously believed to be caused by one type of bacteria but it is now understood to be more complex. Research suggests that although it is most commonly Dermatophilus congolensis that attacks the skin, it is possible that there are a number of other bacteria that can become involved. The responsible bacteria can stay dormant on the skin for long periods of time and is also thought to thrive in certain soil types.

Although some horses can suffer from mud fever year round it is most common during the winter months. Mild but damp winters present the perfect conditions for mud fever to take hold. The protective barrier of the skin can become damaged when subjected to too much water, leaving the weakened area open for attack by bacteria. This bacteria then thrives and spreads in the warm epidermal layers of the skin. As well as adverse environmental conditions, mud fever can be brought on by any factor that causes the skin to become weakened such as frequent washing of legs that are then not dried, sweating, or incorrect fitting of bandages or boots. A weakened immune system could also make the horse more susceptible to such conditions.

Mud fever causes irritation, as well as inflammation and swelling underneath the epidermis. It is a form of dermatitis which in extreme cases can lead to lameness through fluid build-up. The condition can range from irritated skin right through to infected lesions, with the condition most commonly seen around the back of the pastern area though it is not unusual for it to go further up the leg and be found around the knee. If not treated mud fever can become very serious very quickly.
