Dilute 3 or 4 capfuls in 4.5 litres of warm water and mix to produce a foam. Use a sponge or cloth to gently clean the required area. If the smegma is very dry and hard allow to soften for a few minutes after applying the diluted solution before gently rubbing to remove. Rinse thoroughly with warm water.

How often should I clean the sheath?

  • This will vary from horse to horse but, on average, every two to four weeks should be sufficient.
  • It is important to use a pH neutral, specially designed formula such as Nettex Sheath & Teat Cleaner, as cleaning with stronger products can remove the normal bacteria allowing fungal overgrowth to take place.
  • The sheath can be safely cleaned by standing next to the elbow of the horse and gently wiping inside the sheath with a warm wet sponge.
