What is Sweet Itch in horses? Essentially this is an allergy to the saliva from the Culicoides midge which is a small winged fly. To reduce exposure to midges, where possible, keep horses away from wet conditions and woodlands. A good fly rug can help to prevent biting as well.
Use Benzyl Benzoate through the spring to help maintain healthy skin. Cannot be sent outside of EU.
