AlvaSweet Itch Controller

Excellent for the dreaded Sweet Itch that most breeds of horses suffer from. 


For the love of the horse we go to great lengths to source and continually use only the very best ingredients for AlvaSweet.

Applied regularly to the roots of the affected area, AlvaSweet can greatly improve the quality of life for itching horses.

This truly amazing product can be used on all breeds and colours to help soothe itching and reduce the suffering caused by midges, gnats and flies.

For an even happier horse, we recommend you use AlvaTeaTree Medicated Shampoo before the first application and at least once a month thereafter.

For bad cases with Minor Open Wounds, Cuts & Sores use AlvaMiracle – Horse Cream

How do you treat sweet itch in horses?

Treating Sweet Itch

  1. Apply small amounts of AlvaSweet Itch Controller directly onto the skin.
    Use fly sheets designed or modified to extend at least halfway down the horse's tail, thereby covering areas that gnats especially like to attack.

  2. Provide a field shelter and use fly sheets designed or modified to extend at least halfway down the horse's tail, thereby covering areas that gnats especially like to attack.

  3. Add drops of cider vinegar to the horse's feed and provide fresh drinking water in the shade.
