Horse lice

Maureen Ashley

Can u tell me if louse powder is safe to use on an underweight yearling ? Does it also kill the larvae

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Maureen,

Thank you for your query.

The Barrier Livestock Louse Powder is very safe to use on animals of all ages and conditions. This product does not contain any pesticides which are known to be dangerous to livestock/humans. It does however contain Citrodiol, which is an organic-based product commonly sourced from eucalyptus plants which is known to have a drying effect on lice exoskeletons. This product is only effective on all life stages of lice once contact occurs with the product; this does include larval stages present on the animal.

Hope this helps,

Use of powder

Melanie young

my 10 month old colt has a mild infestation of a redish colour lice in his mane but is very itchy all over I am going to use this powder tomorrow on him. He is still in at the moment and want to turn him out asap but since found lice want to treat him first. He is a gypsy cob and have never had anything with feathers before or lice.Do I use it in his feathers and if I cannot use it on his face will he be clear after use. Do I need to burn his beading?? how long will it take to work. How often do I use it??

  • VioVet Staff

It is possible for lice to live for perhaps 2 weeks off the horse, so ideally he would be kept somewhere else for that period, then returned once the lice have gone. This is often not possible, so you should remove the bedding when you apply the treatment and dump it well away from horses. Lice will then die without you needing to burn it. Eradicating the lice from the horse does involve applying an effective product at skin level where the hair is long, but ideally over the entire skin surface. Some products are best re-applied every 2 weeks, but this one is supposed to last for longer. I suggest you apply it as well as you can, change all bedding etc, wash all equipment in boiling water (ideally rugs too) then see how it goes over the next couple of weeks. Most people seem to find this works, though lice can always return in future.
