How To Treat and get rid of horse fungus infections With Banixx
How do I get rid of and treat my horse’s/pony’s skin fungus?
In times of warm, humid weather, skin fungus on horses is a natural but annoying occurrence. The fungus can enter the skin layers through bug bites and/or scrapes or lesions making this issue even more challenging to resolve. Left untreated the skin fungus on horse will likely spread and can be small irritated spots to scabbed and oozing spots, including hair loss. Luckily, Banixx, as an anti-fungal topical solution, treats this unsightly equine skin fungus in record time and without breaking the bank.

Fungus on your horse’s face or skin
To get rid of and treat fungus on your horse’s face or skin, it’s best to resist the temptation to remove or peel away the fungus from your horse’s skin/face. Removing the fungus tissue may leave the area raw and thus open to infection while also being painful for your horse. Whether it is a facial skin fungus or fungus elsewhere on your horse, the best horse fungus treatment is to saturate the area well with Banixx. Use cotton balls saturated in Banixx to ensure that the Banixx solution reaches right down to the skin to remove the fungal spores. You may use your fingers to massage Banixx into the skin but, if you do, the use of disposable gloves is advisable to prevent spreading the infection. Treat 2-3 times daily and results will be apparent in just a few days. If your horse has lost hair due to the fungus, which is not unusual, just keep in mind that hair re-growth is not a quick process – it may take a couple of weeks before new hair is readily seen.Banixx is an effective horse fungus spray and is gentle enough to be used on fungus on horses faces also.

Horses can get fungus in the frog and in the hoof wall. This can also be called thrush of the horse’s foot/horse hoof thrush. When the fungus is in hoof wall it is often called ‘white line disease’ (white line of the horse hoof). Unkept, unhealthy, malformed or feet with deep crevices are more likely to harbor fungus. Lameness does not usually occur unless the fungus gets to soft tissue.
For hoof fungus, it’s best to treat the hoof immediately after your farrier has trimmed the hoof. This allows the hoof tissue to be readily available to Banixx so that Banixx can more easily penetrate the hoof tissue. The use of a hoof boot (commercial or home-made) or a clean, used IV bag (easily obtainable from most veterinarians and generally free) will keep the hoof awash in the Banixx solution for complete saturation. After soaking (30 minutes if possible) then protect the hoof from further contamination by wrapping it in gauze secured by duct tape, vet wrap or similar. Treat twice a day for 3-4 days. Banixx is well-tolerated by your horse because it has no clinical odor, nor any burn or sting. After this length of time, most hoof tissue has hardened over and will no longer be available to Banixx. Be sure not to dilute Banixx with other products as this will change the pH and render it less or non-effective in horse hoof fungus treatment/horse hoof thrush treatment.
