Cavalor Sw-itch was specially developed for horses that are sensitive from skin
irritation or itchy as a result of weather conditions or insect bites. Sw-itch
protects your horse against uncontrollable itching and helps prevent sweet itch,
including rubbing of the tail not related to parasites.
CAVALOR Sw-Itch 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 Sw-Itch 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.
