Using Miller's Equine for Seedy Toe, Candida, Onychomycosis and other Fungal Conditions
Miller's/BBG can be used on skin injuries and skin conditions: cuts, lacerations, sores, boils, open wounds, punctures, surgery stitches, insect stings, bites, etc.
Miller's/BBG is also very effective on fungal infections such as dermatitis, dock itch, scratches, ringworm, hoof fungus sometimes called Seedy Toe.
In horses, scratches is a skin condition also known as greasy heel, mud fever, and dew poisoning. Vets may diagnose it as pastern dermatitis or pastern folliculitis. Seedy Toe may result in hoof wall separation and degradation and once fungi and acccompanying bacteria begin to travel deep into the hoof between the hoof wall and the laminae treatment can be diffiult and long term. Most fungi do not survive well in dry conditions, but in an area where air and oxygen do not circulate, they can cause great damage.
Miller's formula is effective in treating fungal infections because spores cannot surivive once they are in contact with the essential oils in our products.
The disease has been termed seedy toe, hoof-wall disease, yeast infection, Candida, and onychomycosis.
Seedy Toe is a hoof condition in which the fungus travels between the hoof wall and the laminae. This separation, which can originate at the toe, the quarter, and/or the heel, can be caused by bruising or injuries to the hoof, or when the hoof is over exposed to damp, muddy and contaminated ground conditions. the infection can lead to hoof-wall separation.
