**TESTIMONIAL** "Its brilliant!! I wish I'd known about Sol Plus sooner! A jerry can is $64 and you put a capful in the trough every 3-4 days, so it lasts all summer!! My pinto foals nose was burnt and sore, now its perfect and my clydes big white nose is fine too, every other year he's been burnt and had to wear a mask, which gets ripped up and i hate leaving halters on horses too." Kayla Cox, NZ

SPECIFIC DOSING ADVICE
The Sol Plus should be given daily through summer. Can you use the sunscreen on dogs? Yes, works the same, just add a teaspoon to their water bowl or 4 pumps of the 70ml bottle. It helps white faced cattle and horses, as well as dogs and goats. Sol Plus takes about a week to build up so start ahead of when you want to go veil free and then keep dosing once a day even on non-riding days to maintain cover.
Would you recommend it for scabs from light sensitivity? If light sensitivity is the cause then I recommend you use our Sol Plus formulation which targets photo sensitivity and is very popular through summer for horses, livestock and white dogs. In Spring it is also used to counter the 'burning' from horses on rye/clover or other fluorescing pasture. However if you need help with heavy/nasty and moist scabbing then use our Mud and Rain as well.
Yes Sol Plus works just as well on dogs as it does on horses. We recommend dosing for a week to build up the effect before letting them go ‘nude’.
Ideally, dosing their water bowl will ensure the best results as each time they drink they get a top up. It will not harm other pets sharing the water.
The dose rate for a dog’s water bowl is 5 pumps and this needs to be done whenever the water bowl is emptied and filled (or at least every 3rd day).
If you would rather not dose the water bowl, then please ensure your dog gets dosed orally (it tastes nice and sweet) at least twice a day. More if you are going out for a long walk in the sun.
The dose rate for directly into the mouth is 2 pumps per dose.
Please note, Sol Plus does not prevent heat stroke, or burning of their pads on hot pavements, so usual precautions need to be taken.
