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 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 Rug has been approved by Veterinary professionals for the prevention of the midge bite allergic reaction.

The Snuggy Sweet Itch Rug is featured in Horse & Hound's "Best Sweet Itch Rugs Available"!

Sweet Itch rug for my older mare.

Sweet itch rug for my older mare - it's a great design with extra details like good padding on the withers and chest bone, double tail guard. It's breathable and shower proof. Made all the difference to her this summer. I might get a second one in the sale!
