Does your horse or pony suffer from sweet itch?
Sweet Itch in horses is caused by an allergic reaction to the protein in the saliva of female biting midges, this causes the immune system to attack its own cells and leads to the extreme reaction. Along with all the essential management tools you can use to control your horse or pony’s symptoms such as a fly rug and various creams and sprays that are available, have you thought about helping soothe from the inside out?
TurmerItch™ is a skin and coat supplement that is absorbed into the bloodstream rather than applied topically. It combines key specialist ingredients including Neem, Red Bush Tea and Chamomile, to help provide relief from itching and soothe the skin by promoting a healthy skin and coat. Suitable for horses and ponies prone to laminitis, the unique pellets can be added to daily feed or simply fed by hand. The active ingredients in TurmerItch support biting insect repulsion and help maintain reduced sensitivity which was demonstrated during trials with the supplement over a 12-month period. Not only was the supplement extremely beneficial to horses suffering from sweet itch as it reduced itching, but it also improved hair regrowth and coat shine.
Louise George found the supplement saved her time and made a difference to her mare,
Having looked into getting each of the ingredients but I just don’t have time to order all the bits and measure them out and check I’m getting it all right each day. TurmerItch makes it really easy to feed the right proportions. She is significantly less itchy, especially around the face which suffered badly last year as she won’t tolerate a fly mask and destroys it to get them off.”
Get your horse ready for the sweet itch season by preparing the body with a tub of TurmerItch™ priced at £44.99 for a 1.5kg tub.
