Chorioptic Mange Lotion
Clinically proven to aid in the control of Chorioptic Mange also known as “Leg Mites” or “Feather Mites” causing itchy legs and fur loss. It is a 75% solution of Isopropyl Myristate/ 25% Cylcomethicone.
Ten horses with confirmed Chorioptic Mange were treated with the Isopropyl Myristate solution. In 9 cases, no mites were found after one treatment. In the other case, which initially had a very large number of mites, there was a significant improvement after one treatment and no mites were found after a second treatment.
Therefore we would advise 2 treatments altogether, two to three weeks apart. The lotion is as thin as water so there is no need to clip the hair of a feathered horse.
Apply the lotion to the skin below the knee/hock and rub in, then shampoo and rinse off after 20 minutes.
