Anyone ever experience the side-effects of overuse, such as stunted growth in affected areas?

I was just wondering because I was reading the bottle today and just wanted to know if anyone has any idea how long it would last or how bad the damage to the hair might be.

I've never had ANY problems using MTG. That stuff is awesome. It always grows out the hair fast and gets rid of the itchy spots. I use a lot but I only put it on every two weeks to my horses manes and tails if that helps.

I've never heard a single bad thing about MTG but everyone I know who has used it loves it and swears up and down by it.

I love it for what it does to horses, but personally I'm allergic to the sulfur in it so can't touch any horse who has it. DX

Alright, thanks guys.

I had never had any bad experiences with it, but I didn't know if anyone else had. Thanks!

For what it is worth, I have also had good luck with it.

My friend's horse has terrible reactions to MTG. The hair falls off, and it scabs over... so she doesn't use it on him. However, it worked really well for my arab that rubbed his mane off! Helped it grow in nicely.

I bet that stuff could grow hair on a fence post. It really does stink, though, so I usually wash it out the day after.

Rosie had a reaction to it too. Luckily her hair didn't fall out, but her skin started flaking up at the base of her mane and on her tail. I'm thinking I might try it on Rookie. His forelock is almost non-existent.

Also it can cause sunburn on horses such as paints with the pinker skin tones. But is a good product, just be careful with paint horses
