Sweet itch is characterized by an allergic reaction to insect bites in sensitive horses. They frantically scratch out their hair, rub their bellies on the ground, and rub up against fence posts and trees in an effort to get some relief. Fly sprays and fly sheets can help protect them but do not resolve their underlying problems. That’s because sweet itch is an immune problem and insects are attracted to those horses with a weak immune system and damaged skin. Marijke (our CEO) formulated this combination of products for her own horse so that he could overcome an extreme case of sweet itch with permanent relief.
