    So, I've noticed, my mare,Destiny is developing dew poisoning, (yes, big history with mud fever) I was wondering if I was the only one.. Should I get the vet out? What should I use to cure the scratches..?

    Hello, I recently have bought a horse and last night we moved him into the big paddock with the herd. We weren't there to watch what happened so when we came the next day he had one smaller cut on his rump and a slit in the skin on his leg (...

    Hi I posted a thread back in september about my 17 year old Belgian draft mare having hideous mud fever. She has had this infection for about 9 months now, luckily 3 of her feet now seem cured, but the last one just won't budge. She's seen the vet plenty of times and has had several courses of...

    Alright, so my horse has had mud fever that we have continually treating. I wash the scabs with anti- bacterial soap, dry them, put fisks on them and wrap them with polos. Does anyone have any tips and tricks they use to treat this? It's almost all gone (was horrible from his previous home)...

    I was told that Alslike Clover is toxic but some horses have more of a reaction to it. One horse owner has had her horse get scratches/mud fever or scabs on its legs that she couldn't get rid of. She spent thousands of dollars with different vets to figure out why her horse kept getting scabs...

    My 4 yr old QH got rain rot last year - that is now cleared up and hasn't come back. He has had scabs on his legs ever since I bought him last year. I scrubbed his legs off and on all summer (hoping not to dry them out) with betadine - scabs wouldn't go away. I finally got the scabs to go away a...

    Okay so my horse was diagnosed with Scratches aka mud fever on Monday the 21st of March, and he was put on 1 gm bute paste daily, and two scoops of Uniprim as an antibiotic.
