How can you prevent mud fever?
Mud fever can be prevented by keeping your horse clean and dry and
treating any cuts and grazes as soon as they occur. However, we don’t
live in a perfect world, so most horses are exposed to muddy and wet
conditions over winter.
The key to preventing mud fever is to prevent prolonged mud contact,
minimise skin trauma and maintain healthy skin & a healthy immune system.
Preventing prolonged mud contact
Where horses are turned out in wet and muddy conditions paddock boots
can be used to protect the legs from mud. However, they need careful
attention to prevent rubbing and skin trauma. Instead use Nettex
Barrier Cream which helps protect skin from mud and also has
antibacterial and moisturising properties to keep skin supple and in
The next generation of protection from mud are barrier sprays. Nettex
Seven Day Mud Away acts in the same way as a barrier cream, but
is easier to apply. Nettex Seven Day Mud Away prevents
mud sticking to the coat allowing quick removal by simple brushing.
Application is required only once a week and it provides an effective
barrier against mud meaning less washing of legs in the winter and
making management much simpler.
Maintaining healthy skin and a healthy immune system will mean that your
horse will be less likely to suffer from mud fever. Good general
healthcare and ensuring that your horse has a balanced diet are
essential. Feeding an oil that has high levels of essential fatty acids
will improve skin and coat condition. Nettex Linseed Oil is
ideal as it contains high levels of Omega-3 fatty acids which have been
shown to benefit the skin.
