2015-Eco-vet-4x6-portrait-BrackettImaging-large-jpegAre you concerned about using toxic pesticides to protect your horse from flies, but have found that essential oil products just aren’t up to the job? Ecovet is a totally new type of fly spray. It is not a pyrethrin/pyrethroid derivative, and it is not an essential oil product.

So what exactly is Ecovet? An EPA-registered product made from food-grade, naturally occurring fatty acids that are carried in a volatile silicone base. As the fatty acids evaporate, they create a vapor barrier around the horse that confuses and overwhelms a bug’s normal directional ability. Thanks to this Ecovet barrier, the insect is unable to locate your horse as its next victim. This not only repels, but also kills flies, Culicoides spp. (sweet itch culprits) and ticks.

A spatial repellent, Ecovet safely and effectively stops insects from landing on your equine friend, which prevents hypersensitivity reactions such as sweet itch. And Ecovet offers long-lasting protection—you typically only need to apply it every two to three days.

Ecovet has been tested and is endorsed by veterinarians, and is a veterinarian-owned company. Learn more and purchase Ecovet online at eco-vet.com. Ecovet is also available at the equine reception desk at Pilchuck Veterinary Hospital, 11308 92nd St SE, Snohomish, and at select feed stores.
