2 items left

An oral repellent, Ticks Plus is professionally formulated to repel Ticks, Mosquitos and Midges while supporting a horse’s normal immune response to insect bites. Also works on Buffalo Flies when dosed via the water trough.

An innovative oral remedy for horses and one of our best sellers!

Safe, non-toxic & 100% natural.

Suitable for long term use.

Equestrian Competition & Racing safe (not swab-able).

When to Dose

Start dosing as soon as biting bugs make an appearance. This innovative natural horse supplement works to subtly change the body odour of the horse so biting bugs no longer see it as their next meal. Allow a week for this remedy to start taking effect. This remedy does not protect from diseases carried by ticks, including paralysis Ticks, so it’s important to contact your veterinarian if disease occurs.

How to Dose

Ticks Plus works best when it is added to the water trough – both for repelling bugs and for dosing multiple animals. It can also be dosed straight into the mouth or onto a treat or feed. Continue dosing until Ticks, Mosquitos, Flies and Midges are no longer a problem.

Jerry Can Dosing

Water trough - add 25mls - one capful or 1 Jerry Can pump - of remedy into the water trough every second day. This dosing method is likely to give the best results. Dose volume is calculated for a 500-litre water trough and can provide coverage for multiple animals.

Feed – add 12mls - ½ capful (12ml) or ½ pump - on to feed twice daily.

Continue dosing until insect season is over.

Water Bucket – add 5 pumps into a water bucket daily.

Continue dosing until insect season is over.
