Equi-Thème Eczema Rug
Horses and ponies sometimes suffer from sweet itch (summer eczema) during the summer months. Summer eczema is in most cases caused by the Culicoides mosquitos. The horse might have an allergic reaction to the sting of the mosquito and the saliva it injects. This can result in extreme itches, redness around the bite and swelling on the skin.
An eczema blanket might offer a solution in these situations. This blanket protects your horse against these mosquitos. The Equi-Thème Eczema rug is made from 100% supple polyester. This rug offers your horse protection from even the smallest of insects, from neck to tail. The fabric transports sweat out of the rug and only allows a limited amount of UV-rays in, so that the sensitive skin of the animal is protected. The rug can be closed easily around the neck and hind legs and has a belly flap which covers the entire belly. The rug is elasticised and adjustable, so you it can easily be made to fit the physique of your horse. This makes it more comfortable to wear.
Use
Prevention is very important in case of summer eczema. An eczema rug might offer a solution. It is recommended to start using the blanket before the mosquito season starts and to leave it on for 24 hours, except when riding your horse.
