My 11 yr old TB gelding, Riley had his first encounter with scratches this past spring and I treated it with home remedies. It was much improved and I began to forget about it. Unfortunately come mid summer, it had broken out and was much worse than it looked, as his hair covered most of the scabs (shown in the first picture). I was skeptical, but decided to try aromaheel after reading reviews. The results speak for themselves. I was also only able to apply once a day and if had been able to apply twice a day, I believe it would have cleared up even faster. Thank you for this product and I will be sure to keep it around!
