Mud Shield Powder 450gm
Keratex Mud Shield Powder is designed to assist the horse's natural defences against skin abnormalities.
How It Works
Many horseowners attempt to counter the problems of dermatalogical abnormalities by applying a grease or salve to the affected area. But the micro-organisms which cause the problem are anaerobes: they cannot survive in the presence of oxygen, and any greasy treatment may actually make the problem worse. Keratex Mud Shield Powder deals with this by using finely powdered sulphur – an age old remedy for countering bacteria and fungi - in a mixture with aluminium stearate. This aluminium end of this long molecule grasps onto the nitrogen of the keratin in the skin of the leg, and the stearate end of the molecule is strongly water-repellent, drying the skin and keeping it dry in wet conditions.
Keratex Mud Shield Powder is applied by sprinkling onto your hand and applying it to the horse's clean, dry leg, making sure a good covering is achieved and the powder has reached the skin.
Keratex Mud Shield Powder is available in a 450gm plastic talc bottle.
Testimonial Mud Shield Powder
The ONLY product that I have found in NZ to get rid of the mud fever !! Many vet products later and getting my head near knocked off on a daily basis was driving me insane and not to mention how my bank balance suffered.
Finding Keratex was the end to all my problems. After 14 days application to a chronic case my horse no longer suffered from the mud fever. Scabs dropped away daily and she was not bothered with me dealing with her once painful legs.
I now just apply before I ride daily and have kept this horrible mud fever away and can get on with riding and enjoying being with my horse.
I have a number of friends who are now hooked on the powder and wish I had taken before and after photos of ALL the bad cases and how good the legs look now.
Recently a friend got her horse back from stud and her horse had extremely bad mud fever. She was putting all sorts of creams and gunk on from vets and it was getting worse. I told her about Keratex and told her to wash off ALL cream and grease with a 30% copper sulphate / water wash, dry legs and apply Keratex 2x a day or whenever she went near the horse. She was down there every hour just about LOL
It has taken 3 containers of Keratex powder but the horse no longer has the problem. She is SOLD on it too.
I praise the person who made this product as so many horses have suffered with Mud fever and to find this has made life very stress free for us horse owners. Good on you, cheers, your wonderful and thank you so much.
I also used on a skin irritation on another horse and it cleared up in 2 days !! Great stuff, love it.
