CAVALOR SwItch has been specially developed for horses that are sensitive to seasonally recurring skin irritations, also known as summer eczema. Summer eczema is the result of an allergic reaction to the saliva of a mosquito, which is primarily active around sunrise and sunset during the warmer months (from March until October). This reaction causes an itch that does not stop and results in chafing. Not all horses are allergic to this mosquito³, which is why reactions vary from horse to horse.
Breeds such as Icelanders, Shire, Welsh ponies and Frisians appear to be more sensitive to the allergy, and some bloodlines also show a higher susceptibility than others, which is to say that an allergic reaction is genetically determined. Feed adjustments can also influence the reactions. Limiting the amount of protein and increasing the administration of Omega 3 fatty acids have a positive influence. For this we highly recommend Wholegain.
A miracle injection against this allergy does not exist, so preventing contact with this mosquito is the message. Cavalor SwItch keeps this evildoer at a distance, and you can keep the itch under control, so that your horse will not be plagued by an incessant itch.
