After hosing our horse down post ride we would make up the Permoxin Concentrate in a bucket and pour it over her. This would keep the flies away for a few days, we then had a handy Spray pack of Repel X in the stable to give her some extra protection between baths. We also found it worked really well for the dogs too BUT it is toxic for cats so we kept all the cats products completely separate!

Just curious..... Any solutions to the question? The condition is called equine vitiligo, and I am not aware that a genetic basis has been proven, but it seems most likely. The condition requires no treatment is is basically just a cosmetic change with hair folicles losing their pigmentation.

My vet diagnosed Onchocerciasis, which is an allergy to a larval form of a worm that horses can get. We have to control biting insects as well, stable him at night and put on a light rug. We also wormed him with Equest to kill the worms.
