    New to product

    I’ve just started using the Coat Defense recently and think it’s making a difference with my greys sweet itch problem although the weather has changed a bit~it’s not as hot for them. I will continue to see if it works for Apollo. By the way I’m also trying it out on my two dogs! They don’t mind me putting on the powder so that’s a big help

    I'm Still in Awe....Great Product!

    My gelding has a chronic case of itching, and my vet and I have been trying to solve it for the last year and a half with NO luck whatsoever. But then, I heard about Coat Defense and figured I'd give it a try...it worked almost instantly! Typically when I curry my gelding, he will reach back and bite himself incessantly and rub and reach and strain to get the itch, non-stop. Since Coat Defense, he stands there happily while I curry him. At most, I might get a little lip wiggle, but it's 100x better than what he was doing prior to this product. I'm still skeptical to see how well this will work long term (because everything else I've tried in the past has failed lol), but I'm holding onto hope for Coat Defense to be the answer to all of our problems! I'm thoroughly impressed so far, and I'm very grateful this product is on the market to finally offer my boy some relief.

    Cured my boys rainrot

    I recently rescued a draft horse from **** shelter, he was covered in rain rot within 3 to 4 days of the powder it is now completely gone!

    Works but....

    I recently bought a horse with a lot of rain rot. This product was wonderful in clearing it up, however, do take the warning about coat lightening seriously. My mare is black and now has brown hair where the saddle and girth go. Thank goodness it is winter and it will all fall out in the spring!
