When to Dose
Start dosing as soon as symptoms of sun damage appear. Can also be used as a preventative if dosing starts in the Spring, allowing a buildup of the normal immune response to sun exposure. This product is not an SPF rated sunblock. We recommend allowing 7-10 days for the remedy to take effect, and to continue observing sun sensitivity and protect your horse accordingly. Can be used long term but dosing isn’t usually needed during Winter.
How to Dose
Add to the water trough to dose multiple animals at the same time, or dose direct into the mouth, on a treat or piece of food. Most horses enjoy the sweet taste, but if your horse is nervous about being dosed, put the dose on your finger and dab it onto their lips or gums. The active ingredients start working as soon as the remedy contacts a mucous membrane.
