preventing fungal infections

Is there any way to treat fungus prophetically? We have a 3 year old grade mare who tends to be prone to a fungus of some sort (rain rot?) She has a couple of patches right now on her crest. We wash it with betadine and then apply a fungal spray but is there any way to prevent it?

Try Vet Aid, it is an all natural sea salt solution that has natural enzymes in it. It is 100% safe and effective so you could use it everyday. I/m sorry to hear about that with your mare I know that can be tough.

Rain rot tends to happen because the moisture stays on the horse vs shedding off. Does your mare have dry hair/skin? Good, frequent brushing will promote the natural oils. Adding some fat to her diet and possibly a rain sheet will help too.
