Kristin,
I don't know about using all that for just a case of rain rot. How bad is it?

A couple of pasture horses in my past sometimes came up with a little bit of rain rot (because they would rather stand outside in the weather than go get under the run-in shelters --- never have really figured this out).

We usually just scrubbed the affected areas well with Betadine scrub. Rain rot/scald is really a fungal thing. Scrubbing and loosening the scabs with the Betadine scrub is good and then you can treat the affected areas topically with weak Betadine solution (the color of weak tea) or some Chlorhexadine.

If you have a run-in shelter or stable, it is best to keep the horse in and dry. Also make sure to disinfect your brushes, etc. that you use on this horse in case they come into contact with another horse. A Clorox solution works fine.

That's some powerful stuff you mentioned. Has the mare developed a secondary bacterial infection like staph, strep, or Rhodococcus?

I'm only using the MTG on the rain rot... the others were in question for her swollen legs I did find out that DMSO causes Birth Defects, so I'll probably use a poultice on her that should be safe I did'nt bring her home yet she's in quarentine at a friends since I got her from an auction as a rescue she gets turned out in around pen( weather permitting) she is about a 1.5 on the scale as far as condition and I'm feeding her since sat. she's starting to look better but has a long way to go so I've been walking her for 20/30 min daily for exercise to start out I'm feeding Triple Crown Complete it has 11% protien and 10% Fat with all the other goodies in it needed, for good health... sorry to look like I was doing all the above for rot only!
