Sweet Itch is an uncomfortable condition for both the horse experiencing it, and the owner observing it.
The Killitch Sweet Itch lotion is a fully licensed and scientifically proven treatment to prevent and treat recurrent cases of equine Sweet Itch.
Blending soothing botanicals with the highly effective active ingredient Benzyl Benzoate, this fast-acting lotion also contains a strong repellent that strongly deters Cullicoides Midges, the type that cause Sweet Itch.
If used promptly in early spring, before symptoms show, it can be used to prevent the condition taking hold.
Benzyl benzoate 25% w/v - a creamy white soothing lotion.
Directions for use:
- Apply to all affected areas by rubbing in with fingers or soft cloth as soon as sweet itch is diagnosed and for the remaining part of the sweet itch season.
- Initial application of Killitch (75ml) should be made twice daily, reducing to once daily and then 3-4 times a week as the irritation lessens.
- All affected areas should be kept clean by shampooing and rinsing well at least once a week. After shampooing or heavy exercise, re-apply to ensure adequate protection.
- With horses which are known to suffer from sweet itch, it is recommended that Killitch is applied in the early spring before symptoms become evident, so that the condition may never take a hold.
