Mud fever can be prevented by keeping your horse clean and dry and treating any cuts and grazes as soon as they occur. However, we don’t live in a perfect world, so most horses are exposed to muddy and wet conditions over winter.
The key to preventing mud fever is to prevent prolonged mud contact, minimise skin trauma and maintain healthy skin & a healthy immune system.
Where horses are turned out in wet and muddy conditions paddock boots can be used to protect the legs from mud. However, they need careful attention to prevent rubbing and skin trauma. Instead use Nettex Barrier Cream which helps protect skin from mud and also has antibacterial and moisturising properties to keep skin supple and in great condition.
The next generation of protection from mud are barrier sprays. Nettex Seven Day Mud Away acts in the same way as a barrier cream, but is easier to apply. Nettex Seven Day Mud Away prevents mud sticking to the coat allowing quick removal by simple brushing. Application is required only once a week and it provides an effective barrier against mud meaning less washing of legs in the winter and making management much simpler.
Maintaining healthy skin and a healthy immune system will mean that your horse will be less likely to suffer from mud fever. Good general healthcare and ensuring that your horse has a balanced diet are essential. Feeding an oil that has high levels of essential fatty acids will improve skin and coat condition. Nettex Linseed Oil is ideal as it contains high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids which have been shown to benefit the skin.
I wanted to write this email to let you know the story of my mare and how your product has quite litterally been life changing. My 10 year old warmblood mare Alice was diagnosed with a rare bladder condition 3 years ago. Unfortunately the treatment for it resulted in incontinence which means she constantly dribbles urine down her hind legs. Despite my regular washing the legs lost both fur and eventually skin and I was left with horrendous open sores. Desperate for a solution – having already tried Vaseline and Pig Oil – I bought a tub of Muddy Marvel. This was in June last year and we haven’t looked back since. Twice weekly I wash her legs, dry them and cover them in the product. As long as I am thorough in my cleaning and application I no longer get any sores, and the cream allowed all those she had to heal. The soft skin between her legs was also getting ulcerated and so I have started applying it there every other day and yet again I have found it to be healing and no further sores appearing. I wanted to give you this feedback as I understand my circumstances are unusual but there may be others out there who could benefit. I would be happy to be involved in any product endorsements or reviews. Also to help with any research. I was at my whits end before I found your product and was not even sure I was going to get through it but we’re both still here today and she continues to train and compete in dressage.
My Best Friend During The Wet Winter And Early Spring Months! MUDDY MARVEL BARRIER CREAM is my best friend during the wet winter and early spring months. I have one horse who is prone to mud fever now after getting a bad dose of it in previous years. Last year, I came across this cream which completely protects his legs from the mud. It is easy to apply and there is no need to wash the legs. I have found that while applying to the leg it also helps remove any scabs. In addition I found I was able to use it while eventing and would apply it liberally prior to going to cross country to help protect his legs.
