DURING the Covid-19 pandemic we all became more aware of biosecurity, which refers to measures aimed at preventing the introduction and/or spread of harmful organisms to the population. When it comes to equine health many different bacteria, viruses and fungi can be a threat, especially when horses are competing, travelling, sharing equipment or have weakened immune systems.

As we all know, prevention is better than cure and it is very important to put in place a biosecurity program that includes regular disinfection of stables, lorries, tack, walkers, feed pots etc. as well as ensuring clean drinking water is available at all times. The revolutionary Equine Bio Genie Disinfectant and Water Treatment is not only organic compliant but also of medical/veterinary grade standard.

According to manufacturers, the EBG products have been developed from a long trusted effective disinfectant for drinking water, utilising hydrogen peroxide that is stabilised with the addition of low concentrations of ionic silver. When applied to water, air or any surface, it will disinfect through an oxidisation process. No harmful chemical residues remain as it biodegrades to water and oxygen and it’s even proven to be effective in the presence of organic matter (i.e., horse dung). Efficacy tested by The Irish Equine Centre, and proven to kill tested equine pathogens such as Aspergillus, Strangles, Ringworm, MRSA and Equine Influenza. Equine Bio Genie is leading the way, the products are not only safe for you and safe for your horses but are also kind to the environment.
