What our vet says

What our vet says
"Sweet itch is common in horses and is caused by the allergic reaction to bites from midges. Switch can be applied weekly from early spring to prevent sweet itch from occurring. If your horse already has sweet itch, apply to the mane and hindquarters and any areas which are affected. Try to avoid the saddle area."
