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 or feed 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).
Bottles are food grade aluminium with a hygienic serum pump lid and over cap. Great for dosing on the go.
Jerry Can Dosing
Water Trough – add 25mls - one capful or 1 Jerry Can pump - of remedy into the water trough every second day. Dose volume is calculated for a 500-litre water trough and can provide coverage for multiple animals.
Feed – add 12mls - ½ capful or ½ a Jerry Can pump (12ml) - on to feed twice daily.
Dose for 2-3 weeks or until symptoms ease, then reduce to once a week for maintenance.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can this remedy can be continued long term?
Yes, however reducing the frequency of dose when there are no symptoms present ensures the horse/livestock avoid desensitising to the remedy.
Would this work for rain scald along the top line & over the rump areas?
Yes it does, even on bad cases.
How does it compare with Manuka Honey and Creams?
Active manuka honey, is an amazing healer but usually costs more (per horse) than our Mud and Rain and it also has to be applied on the legs which can be tricky if the horse dislikes having their sore legs touched. It can also be messy.
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.
