How to Use COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER

Whether you’re using COAT DEFENSE® on horses, dogs, cows, goats, alpacas or any other furry creatures, application is simple! Follow our steps below for the best results.

Step 1.

1. Gently shake or pour COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER directly onto desired area. Since a little bit goes a long way, start with a small amount and add more as needed.

Step 2

2. Because each case is different, select your tool of choice for this step. Using your fingers, a curry comb, or a brush, massage the COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER into the coat and down to the skin.

Step 3

3. Allow COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER to sit on skin and work it’s magic. For drying sweat, this can range from 5-10 minutes. If treating rain rot, we recommend allowing it to sit for a minimum of 10 minutes. If you need assistance with this step, please feel free to contact Zena at 661-309-0829.
However, when applying to prevent skin ailments, you can move to step four.

Step 4

4. Once COAT DEFENSE® daily PREVENTATIVE POWDER has had time to work it’s magic, use a soft brush to remove any dried sweat grime, or scabs from funk. Subsequently, if you’re using as a preventative, you can use your brush to help any extra powder settle under the coat.

Step 5

5. Reapply as needed. For example, when drying sweat, some spots might have more moisture. Go ahead and use a little, repeating steps 1-4 to help soak it up. But if you’re using this to treat rain rot, and some scabs still remain on the skin, use a bit more to help remove them. Any extra powder that remains will only help prevent bacteria and fungus, all while keeping your horse’s coat clean!
