Mud fever products from Horze can keep your horse’s sensitive foot area healthy. Preventing mud fever is a must if you live and ride in a muddy, wet climate. When bacteria infects the sensitive, soft skin of the horse’s bulbs, pastern or fetlock area, this annoying, painful disease can derail all of your riding plans. If your horse is prone to this condition, apply a disinfectant as a preventative measure to keep the area free of bacteria. Keeping a protective barrier between your horse’s delicate skin and the elements can help prevent this problem from occurring in the first place. A mud fever cream is a good option for keeping your horse’s foot, leg and hoof area healthy. Using an antibacterial topical ointment such as this can keep cracks from forming on your horse’s sensitive skin and keep bacteria out. A powder sprinkled on existing cracks can protect your horse from dirt and mud. Keeping this area clean, dry and protected will allow this condition to heal quickly and get you back in the saddle in no time.
