The best thing about EquineCare Probiotic is it contains hardly any ingredients. Unless you are counting billions of beneficial microbes, yeast and water which create an environment the pathogens can no longer survive in. It is natural, organic and non-toxic which makes it completely safe to use on your animal. It is also non-swabbable which is good news for racehorses. In this day and age with antibiotic resistance occurring at an alarming rate, it is reassuring to have a natural, safe and effective alternative for infections of this nature.
MUD FEVER, RAIN SCALD, THRUSH, SEEDY TOE, GREASY HEEL AND WHITE LINE DISEASE
Mud fever and rain scald, also known as greasy heel, pastern dermatitis and rain rot are all caused by bacterial (most commonly Dermatophilus Congolensis) or fungal infections of the skin. It most often presents in moist conditions and more often on horses with non-pigmented (pink) skin. Mud fever affects the lower limbs of your horse with cracks, crusts and scabs on the skin. Rain scald is usually spread over the body, head and neck and can often be seen or felt as small scabs over the skins surface, with the hair clumping to them.
