Horse's summer dermatitis

The horse’s summer dermatitis can be easily set off by insect bites and from contact with midges’ saliva. It affects horses of every breed.

As a result of these bites horses that are allergic may develop a TYPE 1 hypersensitivity reaction, with release of histamine. The immediate consequence is an itch, that the animal fights by scratching himself, causing traumas that often degenerate into secondary skin infection. For this reason in summer horses frequently appear restless, irritable and show signs of loss of weight and appetite.

 

HOW TO USE HYPERMIXVET®

 

Daily use of Hypermixvet® is recommended to face this problem.

  • During the first 7 days the wounds were treated with Hypermixvet® sponging, without washing or combing the horse’s coat.
  • Afterwards the affected area was instead washed and dried carefully, then treated with Hypermixvet®
  • After each treatment the horse was exposed to the sun light (not in the hottest hours).
