Precision Equine Solutions knows that spring time means horse shows, shedding, clippers and mud. If you are like the majority of horse owners, you have suffered the wrath of mud fever or equine scratches more than once. If you are lucky, you have no idea what scratches are and how they might ruin you (and your horses) day. If you aren’t familiar, equine scratches or Mud fever are a bacterial infection that affect the horses leg, specifically the pastern area. This condition causes chapping, chaffing cracking and crusting (Fun right?) Horses that are bathed and clipped often are more prone to scratches because the area is constantly damp and the bacteria has the perfect environment to thrive. Scratches are fairly easy to spot while picking your horses feet, but in the past have proven to be especially difficult to treat.
Until now! Many of our clients have had great success using Precision PES-Derm. If your horse has scratches, follow our steps and you should see a difference in a matter of days! Read on to learn how Precision riders are clearing this pesky ailment!
