Free veterinary consultation for Banixx customers-Dr. Richard Porter DVM

Banixx is delighted to announce an alliance with Dr. Richard Porter where he will give free veterinary consultation over the telephone. Banixx Pet owners will now be able to contact Dr. Porter via email or telephone and obtain veterinary advice and consultation at no cost.

Dr. Richard Porter attended Veterinary College at Iowa State University with a Doctorate of Veterinary Medicine. He went into practice with the main focus on large animals. As time grew, he became interested in health and wellness as his small animal practice evolved. He recognized as a large animal practitioner that the farmers wanted him to keep the animals well with diet and supplements. He pondered why, in small animal medicine, they were taught to just treat the symptoms. Diet and wellness were sometimes added as just a side note.   Dr. Porter also was a veterinary consultant for KV supply, where he spent a great deal of time listening to others and researching about health and wellness concerning animals and humans. Across the nation, Dr. Porter has used his knowledge and wisdom not only to save countless pets lives but also to advise their owners what is needed for them to live a long healthy life.

The new Banixx® Medicated Shampoo, developed at the repeated request of customers, was formulated to aid horses in the recovery of multiple anti-fungal/anti-bacterial skin conditions such as Rain Rot (Rain Scald), Scratches, Girth, Mane, & Tail Itch, and Dermatitis.

For nearly a decade horse and pet owners have come to trust the name Banixx® and, the new shampoo is the perfect addition to their ‘stable’ of top-quality products.

Spay/Neuter Initiatives

Supporting the work of animal rescue organizations will always be a priority for Banixx. However, we also believe that an integral part of solving the problem of animal homelessness and overpopulation is developing affordable spay/neuter options and better education for pet owners about the importance of spaying and neutering.

Danny and Ron's RescueBanixx is working with animal rescue facilities to award monthly spay/neuter certificates for those who cannot afford the surgery. Working through its long-term relationship with Danny & Ron’s Rescue, of Camden, S.C. we are learning how best to fund these initiatives.

Ron Danta says this about Banixx:
"We use Banixx on everything that comes into our care, and, believe me, we see some pretty difficult cases. For all of these cases, we apply Banixx and it just goes to work! We get results in record time and just love the fact that Banixx has no sting and no smell to it. This prevents further angst for our dogs and puppies, who, for the most part, are already traumatized."


Banixx Donates To America’s Military Working Dog Association

Military Working DogsBanixx collaborated with Military Working Dog Team Support Association in order to provide seven cases of Banixx Pet Care to our Military Working Dogs in Afghanistan and several cases for Dog Handlers at the Fort Hood Army Base.  One amazing aspect of the Banixx product is that its efficacy is in no way affected by exposure to heat, sun or freezing; which is also important when shipping to geographic areas where temperature extremes are the norm.  Banixx also has zero odor and zero sting, so it will not raise alarm or cause anxiety for these hard-working members of our military.

Five Facts About the Humble Hero of Your Feed Room: Beet Pulp

Beet PulpYou’ve heard of it, perhaps you even keep a bag on hand. Or maybe it’s already a regular part of your horse’s diet. But whatever the case may be, beet pulp, a lowly sugar industry byproduct turned equine feed, is a dietary option worth considering for your horse’s health and wellbeing.

Popular around the country and the world, beet pulp is high in digestible fiber and is a good source of “safe” structural carbohydrate‐calories. However, there are also many myths and misunderstandings about beet pulp. As a result, this very versatile feed is often avoided, relied upon too heavily, or used incorrectly in many horses’ diets.

Here are five facts about beet pulp that will help you get the most out of this economical, incredibly versatile feed:

7 Healthy Fruits and Vegetables Your Dog Might Actually Like

Nowadays many of us are eating better and getting more exercise to lead a healthier lifestyle and the same should be true for our four-legged friends. The growing obesity trend in America is also starting to affect the canine population and they face the same health risks as their human counterparts when it comes to being overweight.

Eating more fruits and vegetables also offer similar rewards when it comes to living healthy, but many people assume that dogs won’t eat their greens or don’t care for fruit. In many cases, this couldn’t be farther from the truth, so check out these seven produce favorites for your pet:

#1 - Watermelon: You may have seen an adorable video recently of a cute, little French Bulldog who gobbles up watermelon while sitting inside of the enormous fruit. At over 90% water, this melon contains more lycopene per ounce than a tomato, and this powerful antioxidant can help to reduce heart problems and stroke instances.veggiedog 600x397

Banixx helps Country Acres with some needy Standard Bred horses

Rain RotHere is Jazz, rescued from a sad life of servitude in New York state... now, in a wonderful foster home while she recovers with the help of groceries and Banixx. This was certainly a case of rain rot, but as per usual, Banixx was 100% effective for rain rot treatment. 


           Here is Jazz, today, who was rescued by Country Acres and nursed back to health by
           Karen W.

Jazz has just had her 27th birthday, thus recovery took a little longer than it would have taken had she been a younger horse.  But, clearly, with Kathy’s dedicated care, Jazz was able to rise to the occasion!

Animal Rescue---Banixx pitches in to help

horserescue400x247In October 2015, a farm who advertised as a horse rescue in Virginia made headline news. Peaceable Farms was the location from which 100 horses, a miniature donkey, and several dozen dogs and cats were removed due to malnutrition and abysmal living conditions. Sadly, the rescue was too late for some.  Bodies of cats, dogs, and horses littered the farm including inside the residence of the owner.

Hope’s Legacy, Central Virginia Horse Rescue, and Orange County Animal Shelter stepped in.

Banixx has donated cases of product.

Banixx Aids The Riverside Sheriff's Department - Mounted Posse Unit

Riverside Sheriff Dept PosseBanixx donated product for the Riverside Sherriff Posse is what Bonnie had to say about the event...

“The Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction was a huge success, thanks to all of the wonderful people who donated items. Banixx is very reasonably priced and the benefits of the product are key to horse people who typically have dogs that travel with them too. One key attribute is that is can be used on all animals. I love the small size to put in my first aid kits, carry in my trailer and to have easy access to. When my posse horse got scratches, he was extremely sensitive to sprays that sting. Having a spray that does not sting was a huge plus for me.”

Banixx in Belize, Central America

Banixx in BelizeJimmy Braun, Sales Manager at Reiners in Spanish Lookout, Belize says this about Banixx:

"Banixx was introduced to Belize a couple of years ago and we have not looked back since! Its versatility, cost, and shelf life have made it an indispensable product for our customers. People have used it on all sorts of animals and we have only had positive feedback.  Our customers are very happy with all of the results from using Banixx. Why, just the other week, a customer came in looking for a product to help with a bad fungus problem that his sheep had around its eyes. He came back, in short order, to report that Banixx had taken care of the problems.

We are very happy with Banixx here in Belize!"

"Once again, I want you to know how pleased we are with Banixx. One of the horses had scratches and we soaked a gauze pad with Banixx and then wrapped it over night. The next morning, we unwrapped it, and to our surprise, the scabs were already falling off. Banixx is amazing! We love Banixx. Thank you for a wonderful, amazing product."

Banixx supports American Street Cat

American Street Cat logoSometimes there are not enough homes for our street cats, and some cats are simply not adoptable. American Street Cat neuters and spays the cats and then releases them.  Abby Haywood, Vice-President says "…an adult foster cat was admitted for dental surgery and we noted a ringworm infection inside her ears. The infection blossomed like mad over the course of the day due to the stress of the surgery. We started applying Banixx that night. Four days later, the visible signs of ringworm were 95% gone. The nickel-sized red and flaky flare-up was gone, with only perimeter scabs left. Banixx is far more fast-acting than the oral medications and stressful sulfur dips and anti-fungal shampoos that we’ve tried on cats and kittens in the past, and we’re singing its praises to our veterinarians, fellow rescuers, and pet owners".

Banixx’ affect on Ocular Tissue

Banixx was independently tested on ocular tissue in-vitro (so, no bunny rabbits involved!) and found to neither cause any irritation nor damage to eye tissue. The testing was overseen by the renowned Dr. Gilger of N.C. State Research Ophthalmology Laboratory.

The summation of his report read as follows:

“Based on these findings, therefore, the test article, Banixx, which resulted in a mean cellular viability of 94.79% on the EpiOcular culture system after a 30-minute exposure, would be classified as a non-ocular irritant. …similar to that of deionized water.” In other words, there was no difference between the samples treated with deionized water and those treated with Banixx.

While Banixx is not sold as an eye solution, it is essential to note that since many pet injuries and lacerations can occur in the vicinity of the eye, using Banixx around the eye will not cause any damage to eye tissue. For more detail, please go to

Banixx survives freezing temperatures!

Quart-sized bottles of Banixx were placed in a deep freeze for more than a week in order to test Banixx’ efficacy after freezing. The bottles were slowly thawed at room temperature. Banixx was then tested with a pH meter that gives results to 2 decimal places to see whether or not it’s pH had shifted as a result of the freeze/thaw process.

The results? Banixx PASSED the test! Despite being in the deep freeze for more than a whole week, its pH had not changed at all.
