WHY USE MICROMED FOR HORSES?
MICROMED FOR HORSES
is an incredibly powerful, live, spray-on probiotic, teeming with over 80 different strains of micro-organisms. MicroMed effectively overpowers any fungal or bacterial issues, such as mud fever, rain scald, the beginnings of laminitis, white line disease and thrush. MicroMed can be used not only on your horse, but also in their environment. A useful go-to and far safer alternative to using fly spray on your horse in summer. Spraying your horses tack, in the paddock where the horses congregate, the stalls and stables, any dung piles, and bedding all help to re-establish healthy organisms and works preventatively to keep detrimental bacteria and fungi at bay. Nature's antibiotic in a bottle!
- Rain Scald: bacterial infection, causing scabby crusts that form raised bumps with upright tufts of matted hair, which over time fall off, sometimes exposing pus, and leaving bare patches of skin
- Mud Fever: also known as greasy heel, scratches, pastern dermatitis or dermatophilosis infection. It is usually a skin infection caused by the bacteria dermatophilus congolensis, a micro-ogranism that normally present on the skin. It progresses from a bacterial issue into a fungal issue over time. The problem occurs when there is insufficient beneficial bacteria present or/and when the horses immunity is compromised.
- Seedy Toe: also known as white line disease, is an anaerobic bacterial and yeast infection which can liquefy the hoof keratin, thereby seperating the sensitive laminae, which can, if left untreated, progress to rotation of the pedal bone as in laminitis.
- Thrush: fungal infection by Spherophorus neaophorus, causing the disintegration of the underside of the hoof around the frog. The thrush often multiplies faster in a confined, wet environment.
- Ringworm: fungal dermatitis, causing rounded, hairless patches with crusty, scabby skin. This condition must be treated as it can spread through a herd and survive for months in the horses environment. (Also important to note; the organism can be carried on the skin for three weeks before signs of infection are evident).
- Secondary infection from Demodectic Mange: whereby the primary cause should be identified, usually sterile eosinophillic folliculitis, dermatophilosis, dermatophytosis or staphylococcal folliculitis. If the primary cause is bacterial or fungal - treat as you would, this seconday infection.
