i am currently treating my new mare for queensland itch. it has been hard as im sure the large stagnant lake close to her yard is the culprit and i cant move her because of the flu standstill
it has still been a bit cool here of an afternoon (brisbane) so i had to find a way to get around it. im not sure what you are using but im having huge success with Quit-Itch and adding Equilibrium to her feed. this is a compound that doesnt need to be washed off. on the bottle it says to wash with a diluted amount of it and then wash off and add concentrate to the affected areas and leave it. i did this for the first few days until the vet told me to mix the diluted amount up in a larger quantity and add it to a spray bottle. this way i can quickly and lightly add whatever amount i need as many as two times a day and it doesnt have to be rinsed off. it dried very quickly as it is sprayed on and i can usually put her rugs on about 10-15 minutes after putting the Quit-Itch on.
dont know if this is any help at all :)
this product also has a fly repellant in it so that it keeps any more bugs away while treating. after she is completely healed i will have to use a fly repellant on her during summer etc but hopefully the horse flu will be over by then and i can move her to a dry property.
My friend has aNew Forest pony, from a well known stud in Vic (cant remember the name) and she uses a formula of - Citronella, water, sorbalene (sp?) (i think) and some so soft cream stuff from Avon. I'll ask her for the 'recipe' and send it to you ;)
