Thought I"d post this to show the remarkable results from just one dose of SILICEA 200c and topical herbal treatment on my horses's left front that is afflicted with Greasy Heel:  the results are remarkable!

Update 5/18/2012:  still need to take pics.  Rained last week for a few days. Pastern swelled and got hot again on Sunday. Administered Silicea and Ledum.  Swelling was completely resolved as of Tuesday. Heat is gone. Still scab left on skin. Used topical oil again. Thursday, back to 'normal' totally again except for scabs. They are mostly dry and come off with gentle brushing.

Do you have any comments on this article about the alternative to using antibiotics with wildlife?

Oh, and meant to say that no other horse on the farm has any issues with this at all. :) But will certainly keep watch.

Thank you for your comment. I am keeping a close eye on the issue. I am not at all adverse to using antibiotics if absolutely necessary. At this point, its clearing up nicely. The herbal spray that I use contains 2 'antibiotic' oils as well as antifungal, antiseptic and antibacterial.  I will post progress photos. :)

GREASY HEEL (Mud Fever - Rain Scald)

This is a very dangerous. It is dermatophilus congolensis (bacteria) and it causes dermatitis type lesions, scabs and sores. If left, it can kill your horse and it is highly important that you treat it seriously and immediately with regularity. Horses may need antibiotics to control infection which can pass throughout the body and kill the horse. Local anti-biotic cream may also be used. Greasy Heel is infection and passes from horse to horse even via stable sawdust or straw.


Associated causes are, dermatitis, micro-organisms, allergies, photosensitivity, nutrition, irritants, and soil or bedding conditions. It is usually caused by the same organisms that cause rain scald. Other bacteria may also be involved in chronic cases.

What is greasy heel and how would we identify this problem?
