itch relief

I recently found an all natural herbal formula that helps my itchy Percheron gelding. It's Herbs for Horses and Smaller Animals at web site and the lady is in Florida. She's very nice and knowledgeable. I got the Sweet Itch formula. I soak a small amount of alfalfa pellets in water, and sprinkle 2 tsp of the powdered herbs to mix in, twice a day. (use less for a mini) My horse eats it in one bite! I also use an all natural spray topically, called Itchless. She's in Florida too, but doesn't have a web site. You can find her on Facebook or e-mail [email protected] They both take a few days to start working, but it's really helped my guy.

Itchy sheath

I have a gelding who has a very itchy sheath despite being cleaned with No cleaner..he is also itchy on his body but has no welts or lesions, I have had 3 vets look at him and they ran bloods but to no avail. I am at my wits ends as 2 vets said I should think about putting him down! He is in excellent condition they even said so! His symptoms are: grumpy, itchy on his body and in particular his sheath, hot, but has no tem, eats very well, I have put him onto a low sugar diet and have also introduced toxin binders 3 days ago. I just don't know what else to do..this has been going on for over 3 months now..please HELP!

Re your holistic horse post

Hi Michelle, this sounds very similar to a horse that we have currently. What ever happened to yours? Did you find a solution that helped?

Is there something to give that is natural in their feed to help stop the itch that is general not localized.

do horses feel pain at the base of their manes/ on the crest of their neck? Are there nerves for pain there?

Be careful and do a patch test first. My boy is fine with, but used it on a friends mare and she was covered in lumps. Although natural ingredients it doesn't suit all skin types.

Proper Combination and Amount of Herbal Remedies

You mention 8 different herbal options - but it would be helpful to know in what form, what amount, what combination, etc., should be used to treat a skin issue, as well as how often to apply. My STB mare has been rubbing her mane out, and no matter how I treat it or what I put on it, it doesn't seem to give her much relief.

Itching & Rubbing

For more than 15 years I have given clinics and written articles on horse care. The focus of my research has been on selecting horse care products in combination with grooming tools that minimize damage to the horse's coat, mane and tail, and allow the hair to wick moisture away the skin. I eventually realized a simple curry comb (mane & tail comb) used like a dandy brush was the most effective and efficient tool for grooming. It gets down onto the skin to work out filth helping the area to breath and massages the skin, relieving itch. These articles are posted on
