If he starts rubbing his mane out and scratching down to the blood, you can put some garden Sevin Dust in an old sock, tie it shut and dust the horse all over, especially along and under the mane. Also, what is the concentration of the Vitamin A. If it is not made for cattle, it may be a weaker concentration.
This is what we use. It is cheap and it is in stock. We also get our vaccines from Jeffers. They send us their livestock and equine catalogs. They also carry Farnam's 'Mare Plus'. Vitamin A-D - Jeffers
Cherie: Do you give the injectable orally?? If so, how much? I have a mare that really just looks like she's rubbed herself bad on her shoulders and thought the Vitamin A might help her out. Please let me know. Thanks!
Yes orally. Farm stores sell syringes but the kind without a needle. Measure out 5cc and squirt it in the mouth, just like dewormer, once a week for a month. Then I think you can do it once a month for maintenance or a vitamin supplement with a high enough dose.
Thank you! Just a month? Wow....now I know I ordered too much! LOL!
Do you ever give it for maintenance or at a certain time of year or wait until an issue starts brewing? I thought about giving my mare the Mare Plus but the statement about the selenium makes me concerned about her getting to much of that.
I ordered the Vitamin A-D and syringes from Jeffers......just waiting now. :)
