Horse Care Product Spotlight

Showtime’s Brisk® herbal rub is pure and potent pain relief. This unique combination packs the immune-boosting properties of organically-grown echinacea with the potent anti-inflammatory effects of calendula, capsicum and the natural pain-relieving properties of wormwood. Then we finished it with the nutritional healing support of MSM. It took two years to refine this racetrack-tough formula - you’ll agree it was worth the wait.

So tap into what many champion riders already know: Showtime’s Brisk® is producing unsurpassed relief to sore stiff muscles, suspensories, tendons, sticky stifles and aching backs in hard-working horses. All pure ingredients (without the fillers) are readily absorbed and go right to work on what hurts. No gels, no mess. The deep penetrating formula increases blood flow and will not test positive on competition horses. Great for horses that may be sensitive to chemically based liniments.


For superior liniment action: apply full-strength on affected area daily and massage. Safe enough to use under wraps, gentle enough that there is no scurfing even on the thinnest-skinned horses. For body work: before or after workout, massage into muscles to stimulate blood flow to rejuvenate and nourish the body. Or add 1 ounce per gallon to water for an invigorating brace.


Echinacea angustifolia, calendula officinalis, artemisia absinthium (wormwood), capsicum annuum, capsicum frutescens, methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), sd alcohol 40.

About Vapco, Inc.

Vapco, Inc., Veterinary Applied Products Company, has been providing consumers with preferred quality essentials for improving equine health and performance for over 25 years.

The company was established with a specific goal in mind; to provide veterinarians with a premium poultice and a superior leg paint that would relieve pain like no other. The idea of improving the health of horses with superior external pain relief has now grown into a leading manufacturer of equine health care and nutrition with over 55 different products for veterinarians, horse owners, trainers, breeders and farriers. The two original products responsible for that growth are Pol-Cat Poultice and Blazon Leg Paint.

When viewing our website you will see standout products that have led the way in research and development, quality and innovation such as Bear-Cat hoof formula, Steam-It body work lotion, Fat-Cat body builder, Extro-Lytes sport beverage and Vet Wash "3 in 1" shampoo to name just a few.

All of our products are derived from the finest quality raw materials and are among the finest made in the industry. You can be sure of the integrity of all Vapco products because we make them in our own facility with the same craftsmanship we used over 20 years ago. Although we've improved our level of product excellence by investing in United States Pharmacopoeia (USP) grade ingredients and state of the art equipment, they are still made with a one batch at a time process, bearing a seal that states "20 Years of Quality." We stand behind our products and guarantee them 100%.

We plan to continue offering high quality products well into the future. With your support, we promise to expand our capabilities in a way that will allow us to provide you with exciting new ideas in equine health care and performance nutrition. We sincerely appreciate the opportunity to introduce our product line and look forward to servicing your needs in the future.
