Covering poll to tail including full belly coverage it is a headless option pleasing customers who don't wish to cover their horse or pony's face.
Constructed of the same clever fabric as the Sweet Itch Hood and Sweet Itch Rug, the Bug Body Fly Rug is robust yet lightweight and fully breathable, water repellent, stops coat bleaching as well as protecting from midges, other flying/biting insects, dust and dirt. The Bug Body Fly Rug is suitable for horses and ponies with fly or insect sensitivity or allergies as well as mild Sweet Itch sufferers. It will keep you horse cool and comfortable all Summer long.
The Snuggy Bug Body Fly Rug comes as a two piece neck and rug combo for versatility and ease of fitting. The rug part- with built in full belly band, tail wrap and XL flap, is fitted first. The neck piece then slips over the horse's head and is secured to the top and sides of the rug's neck with Velcro leaving no gaps.
The top of the neck sits closely behind the ears even when the horse stretches down to graze and is elasticated, with adjustment, to prevent any insects getting inside. The mane area of the neck is lined with a seamless, silky, non stretch lining to prevent mane rubbing/hair loss.
Small straps are fitted to the withers and chest section of the rug to prevent gaps. The withers and chest areas are padded and elasticated to prevent pressure. Three Velcro patches are fitted to the rug and belly each side to achieve a close Snuggy fit and a strong ant-stretch binding is run along the spine of the Bug Body to keep the rug in shape and prevent it slipping backwards.
Plus there is also the option to add the Sweet Itch Mask with ears and mesh eyes, as well as Front Legs, Sheath Cover or Udder Cover for extra coverage for severe sufferers.

What is Sweet Itch?
Sweet Itch is caused by an allergic reaction to the bites of the Culicoides midge and, to a lesser extent, Simulium Equinum. At present there is no known cure for Sweet Itch. Once an equine develops the allergy it is generally affected every Spring, Summer and Autumn. There are two approaches to improving the comfort of an affected animal: to minimize the allergic reaction with corticosteroids, anti-histamines or soothing lotions or to minimise midge attack using a Sweet Itch Hood/Rug. The second method offers the most effective protection and avoids the need to use harsh chemicals, expensive repellents and messy oils or greases. The Snuggy Sweet Itch Hood has been approved by Veterinary professionals for the prevention of the midge bite allergic reaction.
