Every summer, Tofino tends to get these rubs on his face where he loses his hair. I have tried coconut oil and it did seem to help but not fast enough. So I looked into commercial products and found the Leovet Bio-Skin Oil from Equestrian Solutions. It retails for 110AED/29.95USD, however I got it in their summer sale for 60AED/16.3USD.
Effective help for summer eczema Natural ingredients like marigold, carrot and St. John´s wort regenerate and restore damaged skin areas and stimulate hair growth on bald spots. A luxurious, long-lasting lotion that soothes bothersome itching and deters rubbing. Regenerates the skin.
There are no other ingredients listed either on the label or online unfortunately which I am not too fond of.
Day 1: Still pretty pink and looks raw. Again, I am not sure whether this is due to scratching or from the heat.
Day 2: It is less pink and looks lighter which means there is minimal hair growth again.
Day 3: Improvement in the surface area affected and again, less pink and looks lighter, which means more hair growth.
Day 4: His hair already grown out and only slight pink flesh left. Great improvement!
Day 5: It is basically nearly completely healed by the 5th day!
This is a great product for horses suffering with certain skin conditions as it soothes and encourages skin/cell growth. The bottle is very generous and would last a very long time as a little goes a long way.
Do be careful though and do a sample test on your horse before applying generously. I myself had a reaction to my hand which i presume is from St. John´s wort.
|• Works very fast
• Generous bottle
• Spreads easily
• Eliminates scratching
• Grows hair fast
|• Pricey (but you can get it on sales)
• No ingredients listed
• May cause an allergy (always test first)
Verdict: I would definitely recommend this for anyone who’s horse has skin issues. It works surprisingly well and fast. As mentioned above, i had a skin reaction to the product and need to use with with gloves, but Tofino has no issue whatsoever.
