Hippo Health Photosensitivity Support



From $53.99

Photosensitivity Support is given orally to promote a normal immune response to both primary and secondary photosensitivity which can cause skin damage, ulceration and the build-up of fluid.

A natural horse supplement that is professionally formulated to use in conjunction with veterinary management.

Safe, non-toxic & 100% natural.

Suitable for long term use.

Equestrian Competition & Racing safe (not swab-able).

Photosensitivity Support can assist with prevention and symptoms of photosensitisation, where skin becomes abnormally sensitive to sunlight due to compounds in the blood stream which are activated by UV light. Symptoms can include damage to the skin that looks like sunburn in areas where there is less pigment and hair, such as muzzles, eyelids and tips of the ears, often with ulceration and a build-up of fluid 

How To Dose

Dose twice daily when symptoms are present, reducing dosing frequency once the skin looks healthy again. The frequency of maintenance dosing depends on the ability for the horse to shelter from sunlight, their overall health and grazing conditions. As a result, maintenance dosing can be once a day, or as infrequent as once a week.

90ml Pump Bottle

Give 2 pumps into the mouth, onto feed or on a treat twice daily, reducing dosing frequency once skin is back to normal health.

90 ml Pump Bottle = 230 doses (2 pumps per dose)

Bottles are food grade aluminium with a hygienic serum pump lid and over cap. Great for dosing on the go.

Jerry Can Dosing

Feed – add 12mls - ½ capful (12ml) or ½ pump - on to feed twice daily.

Reduce dosing frequency once skin has returned to normal health.
