Riotte - An Effective Natural Treatment for Horse Scratches

Riotte - An Effective Natural Treatment for Horse Scratches


Horse scratches are an equine infection caused by dermatophilus congolensis (bacteria). Generally, scratches affect the hoof and hock with symptoms including scabby, cracked areas that can be swollen and hot to the touch, tender feet and in some cases lameness. Scratches are generally more prevalent in horses that are subject to wet muddy conditions for extended periods. Horses with white feet also seem to be more susceptible to scratches.

Causes associated with scratches include bacteria, parasites (i.e. fungus), allergies, photosensitivity, poor or improper nutrition, irritants (i.e. deworming chemicals, antibiotics) and soil bedding.

Earth Smart Solutions carries a product called ESRT - Riotte which our clients have found to be very effective in solving this equine infection.
