  • Ideal to use to help prevent mite infestations.

Made in the UK.

 

For use on horses and ponies. Stroke feathers upwards and puff powder into them. Work powder in gently using a soft brush to base of feathers. For horses with heavy feathering, feathers may need to be clipped or trimmed. Repeat as necessary. For maximum effect wash feathers with Nettex Equine Veterinary Surgical Scrub first.

Key ingredients: Diatomaceous earth.

  • For maximum effect wash feathers with Nettex Equine Veterinary Surgical Scrub first to remove dirt and scurf so that the powder can get to the skin. If minor sores are present apply Nettex Septi-Clense Wound Gel.
  • Ideally keep the feathers as short as possible, by clipping the legs on a regular basis, usually about every 3-4 weeks.
  • Mites can pass from horse to horse by direct contact as well as grooming utensils, rugs and bedding. Ensure brushes, rugs, bandages and boots are washed regularly to help reduce cross contamination. Use shavings as they are less irritant and straw can harbour mites.
  • Prevention is always the best option. For horses that are prone to feather mites start your mite control strategy before mites become a problem.
  • In severe cases seek veterinary advice.

Hello, I own a 15.1hh Traditional Coloured Cob gelding with very feathered legs, he was always stamping, itching and banging his legs on the ground and generally distressed. We have tried various products from different shops and suppliers some very cheap and some very expensive and nothing really helped him. Last spring 2011 we had him injected with the cattle wormer from the vets which I admit did help him, but he had to have it done 3 times during the spring, summer and autumn. This spring I bought him some of the Nettex Equine Feather Mite Powder, thinking another new product to try but – wow what a difference, he has had no itchy legs or stamping at all this year, and no injections from the vets. Me and Robby are so happy with the results, I put it on his legs about every 3-4 weeks. Never stop selling this product it really works for Robby. Many thanks,
