Dermoline Insecticidal Shampoo is a powerful veterinary licensed shampoo for the treatment of lice infestations on horses. It efficiently kills lice after thorough application and can prevent re-infestation when used correctly, to completely clear your horse of lice. Insecticidal shampoo also cleans the coat and conditions it, leaving a soft and smooth coat following treatment, making it ideal for routine coat care of horses at risk of infestation. There are two main types of lice that affect horses, ones that feed on the scurf and skin scales or blood sucking species. Lice live on the horse and as a rule, are species specific, so will not usually cross contaminate to other species e.g. horse lice will not usually affect humans or dogs etc. They require a warm environment such ason the horse's skin within the safety of the coat, where food is readily
available. Lice land on the desired host and quickly grow through the life
stages, eggs hatch into nymph stages then grow into egg laying adults, with a
life cycle lasting around 3-4 weeks on average, so the population on your horsecan increase quickly. They can affect any horse and can become rife in busy
yards due to the ease of contamination from shared equipment, so being vigilantwill pay dividends in those circumstances. It is important to treat lice
infestations as soon as possible to prevent the infestation from becoming
severe, which can lead to more serious health problems. Severe lice
infestations can cause a horse to becoming withdrawn and run-down, and may evenlead to loss of condition and anaemia due to the loss of blood, in the worst
cases if left untreated.
