Contents: A blend of concentrated herbal oils, volatile essential oils and pure avocado oil. Fly repellents can have a drying effect, which is why we include pure and concentrated Avocado Oil, the very best quality skin and coat conditioner for equine use. In the warmer weather the skin tends to become flaky and the hair dry and coarse. High in Vitamins A, D and E it deep conditions hair and nourishes the skin.
Horse Flies: Our formulation is powerful enough to deter the largest of flying insects. Horse flies are hated by both ourselves and horses, because they really hurt when they bite. They have a knife-like mouthpiece that breaks through the skin by slashing it, in order that they can then feed of the blood. The skin is left with raised, sore and very irritating lumps. Our formulations will soothe and help stop the need to rub.
Directions for use : Always shake well. Use as and when required. Can be applied directly to raw and exposed areas and to help stop the need to rub. Apply liberally avoiding eyes and nasal passages.
Trigger Spray: Quiet, fine action spray ensures full and even coverage.
Refill: Self explanatory and also very useful if your horse dislikes sprays - apply using a cloth.
Gel: Very useful for those more awkward areas such as the head, belly, sheath and udder. Please note that gels can attract the sunlight and cause burning if not applied sparingly.
Broken Skin: When animals constantly rub and loose their hair the skin can become very sore and eventually break open to reveal sore areas where bacteria can thrive.
Super Plus Fly Repellent is a powerful yet gentle formulation which can be applied directly to broken and sore areas to stop the need to rub and so prevent hair loss. Also refer to 'Anti-bacterial skin Spray' which can be used in conjunction with 'Super Plus Fly Repellent' to help calm irritation, give instant protection and aid natural healing.
Raw & Sore Areas : No need to worry about application to exposed and sore areas, the formulation is kind and gentle enough to apply directly to areas which have been rubbed raw. It stops the urge to rub almost instantly and gets to work and soothing affected areas.
Midge Bite (Sweet Itch): Sweet Itch is caused by an allergic reaction to the saliva of the biting midge. This causes intense irritation in the mane, neck area, top of the tail, chest and belly. Usually more prevalent between April and October in moist, wooded areas. Some animals are more prone to the effects of midge bites than others and it normally stays with them for life, so it is very important to use a good repellent that keeps the midge at bay and soothes and calms the effects of midge bites, ensuring that your horse or pony is kept a comfortable as possible.
Sensitivety: Barrier Animal Healthcare appreciates that some horses and ponies have thin sensitive skins. Many such horses suffer allergic reactions to natural or synthetic products and for this reason, if you think that your horse or pony may react to products we advise you to carry out a small patch test before use.
Safety Data: 100% Natural and No Nasty Chemicals. We appreciate that horses and ponies may have sensitive skins and so suffer severe allergic reactions to certain natural ingredients. For this reason, Barrier Animal Healthcare DOES NOT include citronella or vinegar in any of their formulations.
Gel: Also available in gel form. Gels are ideal for more awkward areas such as the sheath, head, under the belly and backs of the heels. When applying gels, use more sparingly and take extra care especially in hot conditions as ALL gels tend to attract sunlight and there may be a risk of sunburn.
