Doc Reilly's formula has been a life-saver for one of my geldings (Danny) for 7+ years. "No See Ums" are quite abundant here on the Northern Coast of California and Danny is very sensitive to their bites. I had tried literally everything available on the market to help - some gave him relief for a while, some provided brief intervals of new hair growth, but NONE eliminated the problem until I learned of SE. It didn't take very long to start working, and the even better news is it has continued to eliminate the itching, scratching, bare/bloody spots. Both Danny and I are very grateful - and he LOVES the taste!
My little mule came from Louisiana to Arizona with lots of itchy skin conditions. After a worming regimen he was better, but even in our drier climate, he still suffers from the summer itch type skin condition. I find that this supplement given year round has definitely helped him, along with medicated baths and grooming. This is only one of several excellent supplements from Equine Medical & Surgical Associates. I also highly recommend the HappE Mare product, and of course, Hiero.
The summer eczema oral supplement helped clear up his summer itch. I used it along with the quadrabiotic ointment. Would definitely use it again.
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!
