LUCAA+ Horse Skin Care thoroughly and gently cleans the pastern cavity, restoring a healthy microbial balance. The spray is enriched with beneficial ‘good’ probiotic bacteria, naturally sourced from plants. The helpful probiotics increase the skin’s natural resistance to opportunistic bacterial infection and other harmful external influences. It significantly reduces the risk of the horse developing pastern dermatitis (mud fever) when applied to the pastern cavity.
Mud fever is a distressing condition for horses. It causes skin to become painfully inflamed, swollen and develop scabs in the lower limbs. If left untreated, inflammation can spread from the hoof to the rest of the leg, the sub-cutaneous tissue and lymphatic vessels. This can lead to complications such as lymphangitis.
Dry mud fever (erythematous dermatitis) causes redness and flaking. Wet mud fever (eczematous dermatitis) causes skin thickening, crusts and eczema, and can lead to fissures. The most severe form (verrucae dermatitis) makes skin red with thickened folds and hard crusts. This can drastically reduce mobility.
All ingredients are plant-based, vegan and free from toxins, chemicals and pollutants. Added sesame oil provides a sun protection factor.
Remove mud and dirt with lukewarm water and dry thoroughly (possibly with a dryer). Shake before use. Spray LUCAA+ Horse Skin Care lightly onto the dry pastern cavity. Repeat three to four times a week for best results. Always consult a vet if in doubt or symptoms persist.
