Hippo Health's ground breaking greasy heel Mud & Rain formulation heals from the inside out. No need to touch the legs, scrape off scabs or apply bandages and creams. Simply dose twice daily on a treat (horses love the sweet taste) and wait while the remedy does its work. Once healing is complete, the scabs fall off by themselves to reveal clear, healthy skin underneath. Once healed, you only need to dose at weekends to maintain.
How does it work? Our formulation supports the natural immune response of the horse (or livestock) to conditions caused by bacteria Dermatophilus congolensis. By building up the immune system, you not only overcome greasy heel / mud fever and/or rain scald but you are left with a horse that has no ill effects from the treatment.
Each 70ml Aluminium bottle contains 180 doses. (2 pumps per dose). You can also buy in 1litre, 2 litre and 5 litre jerry cans to put into the trough.
Can this remedy be used on the track, for eventers and for dairy herds? This remedy is competition safe, untestable, has no withholding period and is suitable for all life stages including in-foal mares.
** PRODUCT REVIEW FROM NSW**
Broni K Beerling fabulous - greasy heel product ! Our boy is finally on the mend. Kath we even had our vet out trying to get rid of it - dermapred, antibiotics, cortisone - only worked for 2 weeks and straight back again - this seems to have worked - been giving it for 1 week and just about clear. We wash it with triocil and use filta bac daily but alone that was not working - just about gone now :) Show more reactions September 12 at 4:41pm
**TESTIMONIAL FROM VIC** Serena Middleton from Victoria sent us this feedback: "After fighting a losing battle with greasy heel for six months, I tried Hippo Health's "Mud and Rain." I am absolutely amazed with the results! In just two weeks, scabs have all dropped off and hair has grown back (see photos on left). I can't believe it! Hopefully I won't need to buy another tub of zinc cream ever again!"
Lesley Martin, Marrick Stallions: "I bought this HIPPO mud fever remedy online as Beau had a patch on his hind pastern. As you'd know, its quite sore removing scabs or rubbing in lotions so i thought i'd try this product. Just 2 drops twice a day which i put on a piece of carrot, he loved it. Very impressed with the results as I didn't touch his foot for the 7 day course of the drops and mud fever has literally disappeared. Well worth a try!
Karina Moore, Rotorua: My mare had the worst case of mud fever this year and after trying just about everyone's guaranteed remedy it was only getting worse. Fiona from HIPPO HEALTH made a tonic for my mare and using that in her water along with mud and rain I can now ride my horse again and her legs are free of mud fever. (see before and after photos above top).
I ordered this last week, by day 4 i noticed a huge difference with the scabs coming away easily when I washed them and legs not so sore anymore as I can touch the areas without nearly being kicked, I wish I had taken a before photo now as the difference is amazing so far!" Nicola Leske
**TESTIMONIAL** I love your mud and rain product! It's taken 3 weeks for the worst bits but I can gladly say my horses scabs are just coming away to reveal healed skin underneath! Even in a very wet and muddy paddock. I'm over the moon and so is my horse because she hates the usual treatment of picking and washing but she loves to eat - couldn't be easier! Recommending to all my horsey friends who are battling mud fever too. Thank you so much for this awesome remedy!!" from Serena Fuller**
**TESTIMONIAL** "We had endless months getting the vet out to treat our Clydie who had the worst mud fever I’ve seen. Nothing we tried seemed to budge it. Fiona Lane recommended Mud & Rain and to our delight it worked within the week and kept him clean the rest of the season. It is the best mud fever treatment we’ve used.” - Trish W, Manukau

HOW TO USE - 70ml Pump Bottle
How do I give my horse a dose?
Hippo 70ml remedies have a small pump for hygienic, simple and accurate dosing.
You can pump the drops straight into your horse’s mouth (they will like the taste) or you can pump the drops on to a treat such as a piece of carrot.
How often should I dose my horse?
2 pumps into the mouth, or on a treat twice a day until healed. Then just at weekends to maintain. Horses love the taste.
HOW TO USE - Jerry Cans for Trough Dosing
Hippo Jerry cans come in 1, 2 and 5 litre sizes. The cap is used to measure the dose.
Pour 1 capful into the trough daily until healed. Then just dose 1 day a week as a maintenance regime.
Is it safe to give this remedy long term?
Yes, this remedy can be continued long term. However reducing the frequency of dose when there are no symptoms present ensures the horse/livestock avoid desensitising to the remedy.
