Fungus Amungus

My TB has rain rot on his haunches and down his back legs along with scratches on his back pasterns. I've been using Eqyss anti-fungal scrub and the spray, which has worked wonders and I highly recommend, but with winter on it's way I'm looking for a back-up plan for when scrubbing Fungus Butt is out of the question. Any suggestions?

You could probably still fairly safely scrub him even though it's getting chilly.

If you don't have warm water at your barn, bring some hot water with you, and mix with cool water from your barn. Then scrub him and then sponge the stuff off. Blanket him for a while, while he dries, and then apply the spray when he is dry.

You could also try Vetricyn...it's really expensive, but I've heard ALOT of good reviews on it from friends, and family who have used it. That you just spray on, no need to scrub prior, although I'm sure you could, and it wouldn't hurt.

Well I always use Desitin baby butt ointment. On a large area in cold weather that might not be a good thing tho.
