Ethel Merdonk Wonky Donkey is one of the new jennys who arrived from the kill pen in Texas. During the first few days here, I noticed that she scratched herself A LOT. Mostly she used the joints of the metal connecting panels that I have in their paddock. It made a distinctive, resonating, sound – so I always heard when she was scratching herself against it.
As I was able to get closer to her and actually touch her, I could see the flaky skin and bald areas. Although she has stopped the constant scratching considerably – probably due to less stress and good food – she still has her skin condition.
I’m thinking it is rain rot or some fungus. My first line of defense was to grab my fungal shampoo. However, I cannot yet bath her and I’m out of all of my other Rain Rot cures…
I WENT TO MY CABINET FOR MY ‘SKIN CURES’ AND I WAS ALL OUT!
And then I saw COAT DEFENSE advertised as a popup on my FB page. Usually I hate those ads because clearly they were listening to me discuss the need for a rain rot skin cure…
Anyway… this time, since I was all out of what I needed (and shopping), I decided to click on the ad. The description said it was a natural cream that you could leave on – which was exactly what I needed because she is still quite wild and a bath is out of the question.
So I took the bait and ordered off of the FB ad, which I swore I’d never do again.
However, when my package promptly arrived, I was quite pleased with the contents thus far.
My tub came today (I love the fragrance) and the box was filled with informative sheets, plus a coupon for the human varieties!
INSIDE THE PACKAGING…
The package inserts were very informative. Lots of instruction on how to use the products and for which ailments. Also, I received a flyer on canine/cat products.
What I liked the most were the natural ingredients created for a human to rid herself of skin allergies – who then created the same for her dogs, cats and horses.
I WILL KEEP YOU POSTED…
Tomorrow I start using Coat Defense Paste on Ethel Merdonk. I will keep you posted!
