To pick or not to pick?

Before and After Quick Heal

The painful scabs that form when Greasy Heel strikes do not look or feel great on your horse, but should you pick them off?

The answer is yes!

The bacteria, fungi and mites that cause the greasy heel most often live underneath these scabs, so until they are removed, the infection is extremely likely to continue. However, the scabs are particularly sensitive, so applying an ointment to soften the scabs 12-24 hours before removing them can make removing the scabs a less painful process for your horse, and facilitate quicker healing.
