Last year I inoculated my mare against fungus. (10 months ago). Normally she would need a new vaccination, after 9 months. But the vet said, I shouldn't do it, when she was pregnant.
Well, she is pregnant now (8 months), and she is developing spots on her hindleg again, I'm afraid her leg will eventually swell up, and get septic.
What is the best treatment ?
She is 20 years old, pregnant for the final time since she was barren for 12 years.

I tried last year, just got worser and worser.
I was hoping that there were some good fungicides around, which are safe to us for the baby, and still gets the job done .

try head and shoulders shampoo and mix tea tree oil which you can buy in some fuguside shampoos at eckerd or cvs pharmacy i have had no luck with other products as i had a terrible fungus year last year and this mix worked good and fast. Head and shoulders helps dry it out and tea tree oil does wonders. Hope this helps i wouldnt wrap the fungus as that could keep it moist and help it grow it needs to be kept dry.

good luck

Corrie try this product as well. I have used it for all the applications and it works well. For fungus it only too two applications and the fungus was gone. But be carefull not too use too much as it will burn the area as well.

I've ordered Krudbuster, and I could try Head and shoulders with tea tree oil,
however the product you mentioned Lori, is probably not available where I live.
At the moment I'm using a mixture of Betadineshampoo to scrub it clean, and Micomycine. But last year after several weeks, it got worser and worser, even with this method. I don't know what the toxic effects of mycomicine on the foal are.

I've checked Head and shoulders information, and it is used as a shampoo for the treatment of fungus. So maybe this one could work. I'll buy a bottle tomorrow.

I had no intention of wrapping the leg up.
I;ve checked the insol vaccination, and it wasn't recommend to use for pregnant or lactating mares.

At the moment the leg looks stabile, and there is no heat or swelling, I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Thank you all for your ideas, I'll let you know if it succesful or not.

Have you ever tried a medicated sulfer/tar shampoo? You get that from your vet practice. Makes their coats great!

good luck corrie i wish you the best. fungus sucks i had it real bad last year on my foal and was real nervous to use any products on him because he was only 4 weeks old and got the fungus from his mom. I used several concoctions (spelling?) and finally my vet said to try the head and shoulders and put some tea tree oil in with it and it cleared it up lickity split. Head and shoulders is used by pregnant women so it should be safe for pregnant horses.

This response is for everyone, who gave my such good advice. Thank you very much, but the Krudbuster and Head and shoulders worked. Her leg is fine now.
