Barrier Sunburn Soother 250ml (Equine)
What is sunburn?
A little exposure to sunshine is great for the well being of your horse, providing warmth and the essential conversion of vitamin D. However, some horses are susceptible to normal sun exposure, and if neglected can lead to serious problems.Sunburn is a chemical reaction in the skin to the sun's ultraviolet rays. Exposure can lead to soreness, inflammation and tissue damage, especially in non-pigmented skin areas, such as, the backs of the heels, muzzle, eye areas including the eyelids and the mouth. Horses and ponies with large patches of pale, pink, white areas like skewbalds, piebalds, palaminos and albinos are all prone to burning and skin damage. Pale skin is due to low amounts of of melanin and is more susceptible to 'squamous cell carcinoma' one of the most common conditions known to be sun related. Don't be sorry! Protecting your horse and pony against this disease and regularly examining them for early signs of the disease is extremely important. Neglected suburn can result in an irreversible situation.
|Testimonial||'As an owner of two mares, both prone to sunburn, especially around the nose, I have over the years tried many means and brands to alleviate the problem. A chance purchase of your 'Sunburn Lotion' has given them and myself much happier summers. I now use the lotion daily as part of the stable routine and can report a 100% success rate. A big thank you from the three of us.'- Judy Hughes, Trefnant Bach, Llanddaniel, Anglesey.|
