4 Steps to Combating Greasy Heel!!

Last Updated on November 4, 2022 by Allison Price

Step 1

Gently scrub the area with a medicated, antibacterial/anti-fungal wash. Let the wash soak for about ten minutes so it can kill the fungus and bacteria that cause the infection and to soften the scabs.

Step 2

As bacteria and fungus hide beneath, gently remove any loose scabs. It can be painful, so be careful. Do not try to remove more than you can. This can cause the infection to worsen and make it take longer to heal.

Step 3

Rinse all soap and then gently dry the area with a soft, clean cloth.

Step 4

Use Whitehealer to treat the affected areas. Apply the cream daily until the area is fully healed.

RANVET’S TOP TIP – Apply Yellow Lotion to your horse if they are suffering from severe Greasy Heal. You can also apply a bandage for up to two days. The Yellow Lotion will penetrate and soften the sores, making them easier to remove. The Yellow Lotion can be used again.

I’m Allison, born and raised in San Diego California, the earliest memory I have with horses was at my grandfather’s farm. I used to sit at the stable as a kid and hang out with my Papa while he was training the horses. When I was invited to watch a horse riding competition, I got so fascinated with riding!
