NRG Pro-tect Cream for Greasy Heel and Mud Fever

PRO-TECT CREAM  is a wonderful addition to your stable to help treat the Australia-wide problem of Greasy Heel and Mud Fever.

Keep an eye on your horse’s heels and legs for any outbreaks.  It is easier to get to your horse before greasy heel and mud fever does!  As soon as possible, after seeing the first signs of problems, try these simple steps:

Wash the affected area with a good antibacterial wash.  It helps to wash any mud off first but avoid rubbing any scabs.  Leave the appropriate wash on for several minutes then gently towel dry.  We prefer not to remove the scabs as it can lead to bleeding and the skin may become very sensitive.  Your horse may start to object to you touching anywhere near the area.  Pro-tect Cream helps soften any scabs and they will come away when they are ready.

Once the area is clean and dry, apply Pro-tect Cream.  Use rubber gloves for the whole procedure, not only to avoid spreading germs, but also as the sulphur in Pro-tect may discolour jewellery.

For the next day or two, repeat this procedure, but on following days you can apply a small amount of Pro-tect Cream to the clean area. Because Pro-tect Cream is water resistant (even though it may seem to disappear), it will remain on the skin for some time.  Once symptoms have cleared you can stop using Pro-tect Cream, but keep a vigilant eye out for their return, especially if conditions are very muddy.

We have also used Pro-tect Cream on general cuts and abrasions, after cleaning, as it keeps the skin soft and pliable.  Being water-resistant, the cream stays on for longer, especially important for horses out in the paddock.


One little jar with so many uses!  Be sure to have some in your kit so it’s there when you need it!
