Scratches Plus (Pastern Dermatitis)

$48

Hippo Health's ground breaking Scratches Plus 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 such as Scratches. 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.

* Scratches Plus is called Mud & Rain in Australia and New Zealand
Safe, non-toxic ingredients
Safe to use alongside prescription medications
Competition and Racing safe (not swab-able)

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.

Pump Bottles
A dose consists of 2 pumps of remedy 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 until symptoms are gone, then reduce dosing to once a week to maintain.
 
Jerry Cans
Water troughs – tip one capful (1 oz) or 1 pump (1 oz) into the water trough every second day.
Feed – tip ½ capful (1/2 oz), or ½ pump (1/2 oz), on to feed twice daily.
Dose until symptoms are gone, then reduce dosing to once a week to maintain.

 

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.
