No, it wont directly cause hairloss, but because of the oils in it, it Can Cause sunburn = hairloss depending on the severity

Thanks to all for the help.. I will get pics up in a little while and to answer somem questions......

He is on a new diet
He is with new playmates
He is on somewhat new feed(was changed about three months ago)
And he is at a new barn
But none of these were a factor in the last hair loss.. I never knew that about furazone..not saying your wrong but can anyone else back it up? And im out of it usually. I really like and use nu-stock because it is fast at healing and it does help the haor grow back. But his mane looks alot better to me! And mtg may do that for you and it has done that for me before but I used it a second time just to see if it was a fluke last time it caused him to loose his hair and it made hair grow back where it had gotten bit off in like nearly two weeks. Im thnking bout getting him a hood thingy.. like a sleazy I guess but waterproof and light so he can wear it while his neck heals. And I forgot he is also allergic to flys and we have had alot of them lately.. ok pics coming soon!!!!!!

Not a problem I asked for PROOF the first time I heard it as well

NOT use nitrofurazone since studies suggest that nitrofurazone has carcinogenic or cancer-causing properties

Mechanism of carcinogenesis induced by a veterinary antimicrobial drug, nitrofurazone, via oxidative DNA damage and cell proliferation

This is the best one yet the MSDS sheet on it

It could definitely be the flies that are gettin to him - - I don't think i'd go with a neck cover, because moisture won't be able to escape if it gets in there...just keep it covered with whatever goo you choose.

It is true about nitrofurazone...the link provided is a good one :)
