A while ago, I wrote about Swamp Cancer.
In that blog, I had cited a product, FUNGUS FREE, for Swamp Cancer. After discovering the blog, the owner of that company wrote to me and told me that now the product was even better. She told me that her FUNGUS FREE worked on many skin ailments (not just Swamp Cancer), was all natural and that she would send a bottle for me to try on my Norma.
Norma Jean, my donkey, has what the vet described as ‘donkey psoriasis’. He gave me a shampoo that was supposed to kill it.
For the past 6 months, on and off, I’ve tried just about every product out there for all kinds of equine skin ailments – mostly rain rot or fungus cures. They all worked a little, some more than others, but eventually, Norma would bite at the itchy skin and reinfect herself. The sores never healed completely, even when wrapped consistently.
So, when I was offered yet another product, I was guardedly optimistic.
It arrived right when I was traveling between the two houses. The bottle was stout and the liquid fragrant like herbs. Actually, it smells and feels like salad dressing to me… very natural and clean.
I slathered it onto Norma’s clean (but scabby) legs and then left town. I came back 3 days later and her legs looked good! They were healing! And even though she had no wraps and I had been gone for 60 hours, she hadn’t bitten the new scabs!
Hmmmm. So I did it again. I slathered the salad dressing super sauce all over her legs and I left town again. 48 hours later, her legs were still healing!
Now I’ve been home for 2 days and have used it both days. The healing feels very rapid.
I think we are onto something!
I’M SO IMPRESSED! No wrapping, no biting, no flies!
I cannot believe how well this is working – with the least amount of care… Usually, I would use a product and wrap her legs daily. With the Fungus Free, I’ve been fairly catch-as-catch-can due to my crazy schedule, and it is working better than all the others! All I’ve done is clean the area and slather it on – and leave. That’s it! Today, I rubbed the excess from my hands all over my arms to keep the bugs off while I was feeding.
And then I thought about BG… I read the label and it said, “Mane and Tail rubbing” , which is usually due to midges around here… , so I ran up and dosed BG on her itchy spots. I actually want to wash her mane and apply this to see if I can create a change there. (After treating her for the Neck Worms, her coat is so much better, but she still has residual hot spots on her chest, belly and tail that she is in the habit of rubbing.)
