Description

Sweet Itch is an uncomfortable condition for both the horse experiencing it, and the owner observing it. The Killitch Sweet Itch lotion is a fully licensed and scientifically proven treatment to prevent and treat recurrent cases of equine Sweet Itch. Blending soothing botanicals with the highly effective active ingredient Benzyl Benzoate, this fast-acting lotion also contains a strong repellent that strongly deters Cullicoides Midges, the type that cause Sweet Itch. If used promptly in early spring, before symptoms show, it can be used to prevent the condition taking hold.

Ingredients

Benzyl benzoate 25% w/v - a creamy white soothing lotion.

Directions for use

  • Apply to all affected areas by rubbing in with fingers or soft cloth as soon as sweet itch is diagnosed and for the remaining part of the sweet itch season.
  • Initial application of Killitch (75ml) should be made twice daily, reducing to once daily and then 3-4 times a week as the irritation lessens.
  • All affected areas should be kept clean by shampooing and rinsing well at least once a week. After shampooing or heavy exercise, re-apply to ensure adequate protection.
  • With horses which are known to suffer from sweet itch, it is recommended that Killitch is applied in the early spring before symptoms become evident, so that the condition may never take a hold.

I am delighted with the Lotion as so far it is working well, he has always rubbed his tail during the summer months causing unsightly bald patches so obviously I am relieved he finds the Carr & Day & Martin soothing on his and my behalf!

I use this product on my pony, which suffers quite badly from sweet itch and has sensitive skin. It was great for soothing her skin and reducing the severity of her symptoms.

How long does a 1 liter bottle of killitch last if applied every day?

  • VioVet Staff

Initial application of Killitch (75ml) should be made twice daily,
reducing to once daily and then 3-4 times a week as the irritation
lessens.

This will depend on what dose you are applying, though I would imagine the 1L bottle would last quite a while.
