“Because of the soil type in Taupo we have a skin condition called “taupo itch” which horses suffer from in the hotter months. It’s a skin rash which produces itchy scabs. Couldn’t believe when we used Farmassist just how quickly it cleared it up. Almost immediately after washing the affected horse it seemed more comfortable and within a few days the scabs had fallen off and there was new hair growth. Amazing product AAA+”.

“Fabulous products! Worked a treat on Jacks mudfever, nearly completely cleared in less than a week. I told my vet all about it as I have really struggled clearing his mud fever with 4 white stockings and living in Auckland mud! Will be back for more..”.
