For general use in most cases no harm is done in using the rug 24 hrs a day, although it is imperative that the rug is taken off periodically to clean and to allow the skin a chance to breathe. Special care should be taken when the rug gets wet as moist skin can in time become infected. Best results are achieved when the rug is used for a minimum of 4 hrs a day and left on for up to 14 hours a day, with a few hours break in between. It can be left on for 24 hrs a day when the response is most successful to continuous, rather than intermittent therapy.
SIZE CHART & FIT GUIDE
- Choose size that best fits your horse.
- The accepted method of size selection is to measure along the top of the horse’s back from the withers (shoulders) to the rounded rump portion, just below where the tail starts.
