Mud & Rain is an oral remedy that supports healing from the inside out, reducing the need to touch the legs, scrape of scabs or apply bandages and creams.

Safe, non-toxic & 100% natural.

Equestrian Competition & Racing safe (not swab-able)

When To Dose

Mud & Rain is professionally formulated to support a normal immune response in horses to conditions caused by Dermatophilus congolensis bacteria. For horses prone to conditions such as greasy heel, mud fever and rain scald/rot, start preventative dosing at the onset of the rainy season. Dosing can also start as soon as symptoms appear. This product can be added to the water trough to dose multiple animals.

How To Dose

If symptoms have appeared, dose for 2-3 weeks or until healing is complete and the scabs have fallen off leaving clear healthy skin underneath. As a preventative, start dosing once a week as soon as the rainy season starts. Keep an eye on your horse’s legs and at the first sign of any trouble, increase dosing to twice daily for 7-10 days to return the skin to its normal healthy state. Reducing dose frequency when symptoms aren’t present will avoid desensitisation to this remedy. Severe or long-standing cases will take longer to resolve. If you have any questions about dosing or progress, please get in touch. 

90ml Pump Bottle 

Give 2 pumps into the mouth or onto a treat that wont absorb it, like carrot or apple twice a day for 2-3 weeks until symptoms ease, then reduce to once a week for maintenance. 

90 ml Pump Bottle = 230 doses (2 pumps per dose).

More Information

Advanced cases of Mud Fever (rain scald / rot) can result in nasty wounds which need more support to heal. In these cases, we recommend using our Wound Healing Tonic – Equine alongside Mud & Rain to assist with mild discomfort.

Oral remedies need to make contact with a mucous membrane such as the tongue, gums or lips. Read our blog to find out more about oral dosing.
