I am using the maple flavored powder. My yearling has had a horrid summer with sweet itch and this has really helped him not be so itchy. Sweet itch is a lot of work to keep the horse from having bad rub sores. This powder has helped along with the advice about bathing the horse daily and keeping his irritation down
I have used the S E Solution for 5 years on my Dutch WB Mare. I had tried everything before but nothing really helped. It works even better in conjunction with the RK Sly spray.
If she misses a day or two she is itchy again. We live in N TX and use Fly predators so we do not have a fly problem but we have "no see ums"! We have to turn our horses out at 7 PM due to excessive day heat and horses come in at 7 AM I prefer "TURTLE NECK" brand fly sheet to all others, which she wears at night. She is under a fan in the barn daily. I apply Micro Tek Spray or Gel to itchy areas such as tail head and neck. She has not lost ANY hair. If she gets really itch I apply Hydrocortizone Cream 1% to affected areas. She does better if she is hosed daily and fly sprayed once or twice daily. She is dark liver chestnut and has a beautiful gleaming coat. I also feed soaked Flax Seed daily which is high in Omega 3 fatty acids.
I do wonder if the new dry medicine is as effective as the old solution which had to be refrigerated. I Highly recommend to every owner with a sweet Itch problem!
I was not aware that I needed to open the box immediately and refrigerate this. It was a couple days before I was able to get the box and open it, by then it had been sitting in summer heat for a few days, so it landed in the trash. An expensive mistake for missing that it needed to be opens quickly and refrigerated.
I used the liquid before and it seemed to work better than the dry formula. I did email you about this but never received and answer. I just thought the dry would be easier to leave at the barn and does not have to be refrigerated. But he is still itching.
I cant separate the effectiveness of the powder alone because I used it as directed with the topical spray...but after over 5 years of failing with every other product/combination, this combo is allowing my mare to regrow mane and tail!!
