Fall is finally here. Cold, wet
and mud create prime conditions
for the development of one of the
most frustrating equine skin con-
ditions: scratches. A chronic and
progressive equine dermatitis that
infects the deep layers of skin in
the heel and pastern, scratches is
actually a fungus that can have a
bacterial component in more ad-
vanced stages. Horses that spend
a lot of time in damp, muddy

Banixx™ Helps Keep Scratches at
Bay During the Cold, Wet Winter
pastures are most susceptible to
contracting scratches due to the
constant wetting and drying of
the skin on the legs and hooves.
How do I keep my horse
from getting scratches?
If possible, keep your horse
in a clean, dry stall and away
from overly wet, muddy pastures.
Avoid early morning turnout when
there is a heavy dew or frost, and
when you bring your horse in
for the evening, dry his legs and
check for early signs of infection.
Use Banixx as a preventative
measure by spraying the lower leg
area and pasterns and patting it
into the skin so that it makes good
contact. Since Banixx provides an
inhospitable environment to both
bacteria and fungus, you can stay
ahead of the game with this simple
step. It’s not possible to over-med-
icate with Banixx™, so it can be
used daily as a preventative.
How do I treat scratches?
Though many people use
harsh chemical mixes to treat
scratches, this approach is rarely
successful in eradicating 100% of
infectious cells. Banixx provides
a gentler and more successful
approach. Carefully clip the hair
away from the infected area,
making sure not to break the skin.
Then, wash thoroughly with a
mild soap. Pat the areas dry and,
twice a day, apply a gentle, topi-
cal treatment, such as Banixx™,
that will not burn or sting and
will promote healing.
