I was skeptical. I live in Central Florida and have a donkey and mini with super itchy skin. The donkey has been on steroids to control the itch. I'd rather not use the steroids unless absolutely necessary. I've tried numerous supplements and shampoos, but nothing has worked. I picked up a flyer for the Summer Eczema Supplement at a feed store. Early this year both animals started rubbing, causing sores so I decided to give the Summer Eczema Supplement a try. They've been on it about 2 and a half months and while not completely itch free, it's much better than in the past. Being honest, if I'd use the MAP shampoo like I should, they'd probably be closer to itch free. I do also use a quality fly spray. I started with the powder but because they only get a small amount of a ration balancer feed, they weren't consuming all of the powder. I've switched to the liquid and they're cleaning their bowls. Dosing 2 is a little pricey but it beats treating sores.
Helps with his summer itch. Best product
I had been using a product from England that was hard to get, fingers crossed but this seems to be working great..cheaper and much easier to get! So excited for my horse!
I was able to decrease then stop steroid treatment after starting the oral eczema treatment. She no longer is rubbing herself raw. So glad I found this product.
I ordered this product completely on a whim not expecting it to do anything to help my sweet itch horse. I followed the dosing instructions and after a couple of weeks his skin started to look better and grow hair back. I assumed it was a change in weather, better coverage by his Boett, or allergy shots kicking in so I discontinued the eczema supplement. Almost immediately he was scratching himself raw again and the sores returned to his face. I restarted the eczema powder and his face cleared up. This product has proven itself to me and will be a summer staple for my itchy horse! It has made a HUGE difference. If you’re in the fence, try it. I’m so glad I did!
