Fidavet Cavalesse is a neutraceutical non-medicinal product containing nicotinamide which helps to maintain a healthy skin in horses prone to allergies in the summer months. It is most commonly used in horses which suffer from sweet itch. The sachets contain powder which is to be mixed with 80ml water and administered once daily on a small treat (sugar cube/bread) at a rate of 2ml for horses up to 500kg and 3ml for horses weighing more than 500kg. It is recommended to start treatment approximately two weeks before the onset of signs of allergy. As it is an aid to management other management techniques should be continued initially and results assessed as the season progresses.

I have tried most things to ease my Exmoor's sweetitch, with limited success. These are certainly worth trying in my opinion, this year I started her on Cavalesse a good 6 weeks before she would have started rubbing and she has been much less itchy. It's not 100% but there have been no episodes of frantic rubbing this summer, I can tie her up without her rubbing madly which is huge bonus! I use approximately 1 sachet a month and administer the solution in sugar cubes. I was sceptical about Cavalesse making a difference but I think it does ease sweetitch symptoms and for me, that makes it worthwhile continuing with.

55 great product

I've used this all summer and you wouldn't even know my horse was itchy. 3 sachets in a box, I used approximately 1 a month so needed 2 boxes - was defiantly worth it.

Cavalesse helps to ease the troublesome itch of sweet itch in ponies. If I run out and have several days in the summer without it the pony is very noticeably more itchy

Mares in foal


Is this product safe to use on a mare that is in foal?
And will it help if she has already started itching?

  • VioVet Staff

As far as I am aware there have not been any studies done to show whether Cavalesse is safe to give to pregnant mares. However it is a very natural product so from a veterinary point of view should be absolutely fine. Of course I cannot tell you this with 100% certainty though. As with any treatment against sweet itch it does work better if given before the itch cycle starts however it is likely to still be of some benefit given at any time.
