EquITCH PRODUCT TIPS

HORSES & LARGE ANIMALS

The products are best used at night to enable absorption at skin temperature and provide maximum protection from culicoides midge & mosquitoes.

Keep EquITCH Salve in moderate temperature, particularly during the cooler times. It can be softened by indirect heat (standing in sunshine with lid on or in a container of hot water) and by adding some of the EquITCH Spray/Wipe-On product to it. Stir well each time prior to use; this helps thin the product and ensure even distribution of essential oils.
Prior to applying either product ensure that the part or animal to be treated is cleansed thoroughly. Best results are obtained when clean-up is done each time prior to re-applying products. A solution of 250ml ordinary household white vinegar and 2 litres warm water make an ideal cleanser which will help remove dirt, dead skin and hair.
If your animal has developed a psychosis for being treated in a particular place, commence treatment in an area not posing a problem - for instance if the head & ear areas are a problem commence under the jawline and work upwards. Emphasis on the wound alone can sometimes reinforce negative behaviour toward the area.
Where animal is to be treated and then rugged over the area (i.e. necks & backs) it is best to use an old cotton combo, stable blanket or line the area inside these areas with old sheeting to protect rugs from becoming coated in waxy residue.

EquITCH SALVE

EquITCH Salve is a heavier duty water repellent product than the EquITCH Spray/Wipe-On and it provides better protection for bald, raw and bony parts such as faces & tails. 

A combination of both products can be used to treat the animal where needed. Salve can be made thinner by adding some of the EquITCH Spray/Wipe-On to it or made into a lotion by mixing half salve with half spray/wipe-on - this works very well in the cooler months of the year when salve can become a little hard.
Because of the easy to use application with EquITCH Spray/Wipe-On it is an ideal product for preventing ticks, lice, mites, flies & mosquitoes.
Sometimes itchy tails can be attributable to mosquito bites between the thighs or under the belly. A spray or wipe with EquITCH Spray/Wipe-On or light application with the salve can help relieve this problem. Also check that sheaths on geldings and colts are clean - this can contribute to itchiness.
Some animals are "spray-shy" and an application with a sponge is recommended tail scratching is evident geldings should be checked for clean sheaths as this can contribute to itchy tails. A light spray/wipe between particularly if using around the head. Sometimes spraying with plain warm water from a continuous sprayer can re-educate the animal to become adapted to sprays.

EquITCH SPRAY/WIPE-ON

EquITCH Spray/Wipe-On can be used immediately after washing when the fur has been towel dried. It can also be used as a clean-up solution prior to re-applying salve.
Rub in products well but lightly - animals love the caressing.
If a zinc ointment is being used to protect vulnerable white markings it can be applied after applying the EquITCH.
A good wash with natural soap, or if around the head area with tearless baby shampoo, after the first 2 weeks intensive treatment helps remove dead skin & fur ensuring the product is treating the skin. Thorough rinsing is important. 010605

MITE ITCH NO-MORE & ITCH NO- MORE

DOGS, CATS & SMALL ANIMALS

Both products are best used at night to ensure a peaceful night's sleep for both pet and owner. Insert week day in first day on Chart for treatment routine.

 

Prior to applying either product ensure that the part or animal to be treated is cleansed thoroughly. Best results are obtained when clean-up is done each time prior to applying.
A solution of 250ml ordinary household white vinegar and 2 litres warm water make an ideal cleanser which will help remove dirt, dead skin and hair.
If your pet has developed a psychosis for being treated in a particular place, ensure that the treatment also includes some areas which are not a general problem for the animal. Emphasis on the wound alone can reinforce negative behaviour toward the "favoured" area.
Some animals are "spray-shy" and an application with a sponge is recommended particularly if using around the head. Sometimes spraying with plain warm water can help the pet overcome its fear of products.
Itch NO-More Salve: Keep in moderately warm temperature during colder months. Stir well each time prior to use; this helps thin the product, ensuring essential oils are distributed evenly.
The Salve is a heavier duty water repellent product than the MITE Itch NO-More Spray and it is therefore better for feet, faces, inside ears and bare tummies. A combination of both products can be used to treat the entire animal where needed. Rub in products well but lightly - animals love the caressing.

MITE Itch NO-More SPRAY:

Because of the easy to use application with the spray it is an ideal product for preventing ticks, fleas, flies and mites. During heavy infestation periods a twice weekly application is recommended although it can be applied more frequently if desired.
On thick areas rub fur against the natural lay and lightly spray down onto skin then rub through with fingers.
The Spray can be used immediately after bathing the pet when the fur has been towel dried. Lightly rub fingers through fur to spread.

Making Your Own Lotion:

TO MAKE A VERY EASY TO SPREAD LOTION FROM BOTH PRODUCTS, combine equal amounts of Itch NO-More Salve and MITE Itch NO-More Spray and mix together thoroughly until smooth. Store in a clean honey type squeezeable bottle for easy application.
