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

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

Two of my herd are susceptible to rain scald at times and we live in a humid environment and can get days and days of rain. I use mud and rain during the wet times and it has really helped my horses.

Amazing!

Like most people I suppose I was a bit skeptical about whether or not this would work but OMG it truly does! After approx 16 days of using this everyday, the scabs came away and there was new hair underneath...so impressed with mud and rain and would definitely recommend to everyone with a horse that has mud rash or rain scald. My horse is now on a maintenance dose twice a week.

Incredible !!!

Our horse suffered open sores on his rear white socks, post mud fever for at least 8months. I tried so many things that most people would say usually works. I attended to him every day, washing, drying, picking scabs off and applying a variety of creams. The vet came and had an aggressive approach by suggesting me to pick off scabs even if it bleeds, wash dry and apply antibiotics. I was not willing to put him through this painful process yet. Thankfully a friend mentioned the mud and rain product by Hippo. It is a liquid that you squirt 3 mils on a treat and feed your horse twice a day or squirt straight on the tongue. I was able to squirt it on his tongue. He got really use to it. You don’t need to touch the sore at all. The product gets absorbed internally and I guess triggers the immune system to heal itself from the inside. I cannot tell you how happy I was not having to wash, pick, dry and apply everyday. It did take a month or so but I think this must have been a super stubborn bacteria. Now the area is just powdery and a bit hard and over time will restore fully I guess. So if you can get to your horse a couple of times a day and need a simple and effective result, I fully recommend this product. Initially I wasn’t expecting it to work. When it did work I now want to tell everyone !!!! I have never filled out a review but couldn’t resist !!

OMG

I tried everything. Everything! But my grey Fell pony would still end up with bloody legs from scratches... within one week of starting him on Hippo mud & Rain he was looking better. After two weeks, no bloody legs and scratches were gone. Wow!

Thank you for such a quality product.
