MediScent Mud Fever - Lotion is a non-greasy fast acting lotion for cracked heels- mud fever, based on lanolin enriched with aloe vera, calendula oil and essential oils.
Mud Fever (cracked heels);
In all cases continual wetting of the skin results in a breakdown of the protective barrier of the epidermis, allowing bacteria to enter and infection to take hold.
Some soil types seem to predispose horses to these infections. This may explain why several animals on the same pasture become affected. There are various other predisposing factors such as:
- Prolonged damp, mild conditions
- Standing in deep mud or soiled bedding
- Constantly washing limbs before and/or after work without fully drying them afterwards
Apply to the back of the fetlock, for a deep and long-lasting care.
Natural base lotion, aloe vera, calendula, essential oils and neem.
