Hippo Health's ground breaking Scratches / Greasy Heel / Mud Fever & Rain Scald formulation heals from the inside out. No need to touch the legs, scrape off scabs or apply bandages and creams. Simply dose twice daily on a treat (horses love the sweet taste) and wait while the remedy does its work. Once healing is complete, the scabs fall off by themselves to reveal clear, healthy skin underneath. Once healed, you only need to dose at weekends to maintain.

How does it work? Our formulation supports the natural immune response of the horse (or livestock) to conditions caused by Dermatophilus congolensis bacteria i.e. scratches / mud fever / greasy heel / mud rash and rain scald / rain rot. By building up the immune system, you not only overcome the condition but you are left with a horse that has no ill effects from the treatment.

Safe, non-toxic ingredients
Safe to use alongside prescription medications
Competition and Racing safe (not swab-able)
Safe for pregnant and lactating mares
Alcohol free

All remedies have a shelf life of 2 years

Base: Vegetable glycerine & purified water

Pump Bottles
A dose consists of 2 pumps of remedy, twice a day, onto the tongue, gums or lips. 
Can also be given on a piece of food. Most horses love the sweet taste but if your horse is nervous about being dosed, you can put the dose on your finger and dab it on their lips or gums. They do not need to swallow the dose, it just has to come into contact with their tongue or gums.
Dose twice a day until symptoms are gone, then reduce dosing to once a week to maintain.
 
Jerry Cans
Water troughs – tip one capful (25ml) or 1 pump (25ml) into the water trough every second day.
Feed – tip ½ capful (12ml), or ½ pump (12ml), on to feed twice daily.
Once symptoms are gone, reduce dosing to once a week to maintain.

Remedies are dispensed either in a 90ml food grade aluminium bottle with a hygienic serum pump lid with over-cap or in food grade plastic jerry cans, sized 1 litre, 2 litres and 5 litres  The 5 litre jerry cans come with a free dispensing pump. The pump can also be bought separately for the smaller jerry cans. 

90ml bottle = 230 doses

1 litre jerry can = 80 days continuous cover via water troughs (dosing every second day) or 40 days dosing on feed (twice daily). *Maintenance dosing is once a week so product will last a lot longer.

2 litre jerry can = 160 days continuous cover via water troughs (dosing every second day) or 80 days dosing on feed (twice daily). *Maintenance dosing is once a week so product will last a lot longer.

5 litre jerry can = 400 days continuous cover via water troughs (dosing every second day) or 200 days dosing on feed (twice daily). *Maintenance dosing is once a week so product will last a lot longer.

This remedy can be continued long term. However reducing the frequency of dose when there are no symptoms present ensures the horse/livestock avoid desensitising to the remedy.Would this work for rain scald along the top line & over the rump areas?

Yes it does, even on bad cases. Yes it does help the itch. Active manuka honey, which is an amazing healer usually costs more (per horse) than our Mud and Rain and it also has to be applied on the legs. A big advantage of our product is that it is given orally on a treat or in the trough, it couldn't be easier, no need to scrape, scrub or apply creams. You need to leave the scabs alone and let the healing happen on its own. If you need help with heavy/nasty and moist scabbing then use Mud and Rain. If it is a severe case then twice daily dosing will be needed. You can give the 2 doses half an hour apart if you only visit the grazing once a day, once when you catch them and once when you turn them out. Healing time varies from 5-7 days for mild cases, 3 weeks for severe cases.

Mud and rain - works great

we have been using this product for a while now and it really works. However this year, for whatever reason it didn't seem to be keeping the rain scald at bay. After contacting Hippo Health, they suggested that our horse might have a strain of rainscald that was particularly resistant to the original recipe, so they tweaked it and sent out a new batch for us to try. The results have been amazing and our horse is feeling and looking much better.

Great service and great product.

Fantastic Product

Absolutely my go to for my TB with two white socks, she suffers terribly from Mud Fever, goes painfully lame and swollen if I try to use topical creams. With Mud and Rain the scabs start to fall away in just a couple of days. She needs the loading dose for about two week to clear up completly. Now on once a week and fingers firmly crossed.

Highly recommend this product.

My boy with white socks used to get terrible mud fever

I started using this three years ago and the last three winters none at all. I’ll always use it leading up to and through winter.
