Using Advanced Chlorine Dioxide technology, Equi-Oxcide with its unique activation system has been developed to destroy the bacteria that causes skin conditions in muddy and wet conditions. Equi-Oxcide destroys bacteria, fungi and spores. Directions:Equi-Oxcide is a two part treatment. Bottle (1) contains Chlorine Dioxide Bottle (2) contains an activator. Mix equal amounts from each bottle into the packaging and mix using the brush supplied. Brush the mixed gel onto the affected area. This should be repeated 2 – 3 times a week until the area is clear. DO NOT REMOVE THE SCABS APPLY DIRECTLY ONTO THE SCABS. Equi-Oxcide will penetrate the scabs and destroy the bacteria. When the scabs fall off the spores have been destroyed by Equi-Oxcide. Only mix the amount required and use straight away.
After using Equi-Oxcide treatment apply Equi-Oxcide barrier spray on the areas prone to bacteria from muddy conditions. This will reduce the risk of re-infection. Weight: 200 g
Independent advice from Equitait Veterinary Practice : We find this product particularly useful for milder cases where the horse doesn’t tolerate having the scabs picked off. For more information on mud fever treatments please see our factsheet.
