Prolonged wetting of the horse's hair by wet weather and muddy fields leads to progressive degrading of the skin’s mantle making it susceptible to invading micro-organisms. If mud fever (also known as pastern dermatitis) develops, the skin can become very inflamed and sore, with scabs developing and the legs becoming swollen.
Biteback's Mudbar range enhances the skin’s natural waterproof function creating a more effective barrier to adverse conditions.
Apply twice a day to target areas. Carefully remove any mud, wash the area with warm salty water or Biteback's Winter Wash, then thoroughly dry - finishing with a drying powder such as Biteback's Flowers and Zinc - before applying the cream. A clear difference should be seen within a week. Once the scabs are gone, our barrier cream Mudbar can be used to discourage re-occurrence.
Silver ions and sublimed flowers of sulphur to support the body's natural defence systems; benzyl benzoate to soothe and moisten; liquid paraffin and waxes to moisten and form a waterproof barrier; glycerin to lubricate hard skin and scabs; and allantoin to support hair and skin renewal
