Got the crud? Or rather, your horse has crud on his legs, body or head? Rain rot, rain scald, scratches, scurf, crud, mud fever, Cannon Keratosis – these issues that may start small but quickly can become very big! We groom groom groom, but some horses are just more prone to ‘getting stuff,’ or your week got out of control and so now your horse has a wretched, unsightly skin condition.
Give this a go (might wear gloves to keep any infection from spreading):
It’s best to NOT pick off scabs as that exposes tissues to bacteria. As the tissues heal the scabs will slough off.
Dampen the area with water, apply a small amount of Banixx Medicated Shampoo, gently massage the shampoo in to the skin surface, let it sit for 10 minutes, then rinse and towel dry.
For extra ‘power’, spray with Banixx Horse & Pet Care Spray.
Another option is to dampen the area with water, apply a small amount of Banixx Medicated Shampoo, gently massage the shampoo in to the skin surface, go for a ride, muck some stalls, etc., — when you come back rinse the area with water and towel dry.

For itchy spots: For horses that itch at the same areas (allergies or whatever). Wash the area (or whole horse) with Banixx Medicated Shampoo and once dry apply Banixx Wound Care Cream or Banixx Horse & Pet Care Spray. Repeat every few days if the itching persists. Also, follow up applications of Banixx Horse & Pet Care Spray between washings are effective at providing relief and soothing the skin.
Girth galls: We all do our best to avoid them, we feel terrible when it happens, but it does happen. Clean gently with Banixx Horse & Pet Care Spray, allow it to dry and apply Banixx Wound Care Cream. Repeat the application of Banixx Wound Care Cream daily.
Banixx Medicated Shampoo and Banixx Wound Care Cream have chlorohexidine that helps with killing bacteria/fungus, but are ultra-enriched with moisturizing, rejuvenating marine collagen. The Banixx product line has no clinical odor, no sting, no alcohol, no steroids, and is non-toxic. So safe and easy to use, with no worries!
