Preventative strategies are the key to itch control, so start early before the midge and fly season starts with a once-a-week application of Nettex Equine Freedom Salve Complete, an advanced salve which helps repel and protect against insects and biting flies. This unique formulation contains margosa (neem) and eucalyptus and has wonderfully soothing and disinfecting properties, is weather resistant and will not matt your horse's hair. Great for horses who suffer from sweet itch, Summer Freedom Salve will soothe, sanitise and disinfect minor sores and help break the itch/scratch cycle, as well as repelling against new bites and supporting skin and hair regrowth. It can also be applied around sarcoids to help prevent irritation from flies. This powerful salve only requires application once a week, meaning a 600ml tub can last up to 6-8 weeks.
Apply directly to any area that has been affected or prone to attack using a clean sponge. In most cases one application a week is sufficient. In severe cases if the itch/rub/scratch cycle has started, it may need to be applied more regularly. For best results, prewash with Nettex Everyday Shampoo before applying to remove any grease, dirt or debris and sanitise the skin. Repeat application after heavy rainfall, bathing or heavy sweating. For maximum results apply as early as February to prevent midge attacks taking hold. The mane, tail and rump areas are most prone to attack.
If using this product for the first time, a patch test is recommended first. Bathing is also recommended where or when necessary to remove build-up of grime and dirt with an everyday conditioning shampoo. This is kind to skin and does not strip the coat of natural oils.
Do not use under saddlery areas or fly rugs or masks as may cause irritation.
