Manufacturer: Straight Arrow Products, Inc.
Model: Mane 'n Tail Pro-Tect Antimicrobial Topical Skin & Wound Treatment
Category: Horse Health and Well Being

Purchase: I got a 120ml sample bottle of this at a recent tack clinic I attended. I use a lot of Straight Arrow products, so I looked forward to adding this to my tack box. Looking through various local websites, I see that the 473ml bottle generally sells for around $22.00 Cdn without taxes.

Likes: The bottle makes a lot of promises, but so far, seems to have kept them all. - Provides complete protection for skin and wound application - Highly effective, broad-spectrum antimicrobial spray - Kills a wide range of microorganisms including bacteria, yeast, mold, fungi and viruses - Effective against most opportunistic micro organisms associated with skin problems, and - Conditions skin and coat to speed healing without burning or irritation (to name a few). My first 'victim' is our dog, who seems to have gotten an itch on his leg. He began to nibble and now has a red, sore looking patch. Bandaging irritated him and seemed to make him want to chew more. I sprayed this product on that area and he hasn't been bothered yet. He's left it alone completely. I like having versatile products around the home which can be used on a variety of animals (and boy do we have a variety!). Straight Arrow says 'For horses and other animals with topical skin and wound problems'.

Dislikes: This is a biggie. I went to the Straight Arrow website tonight to look around and see what's new. I read through the Mane 'n Tail Pro-Tect Antimicrobial Topical Skin & Wound Treatment page and found this at the bottom: *NOT FOR USE ON CATS OR PUPPIES Why this isn't on the actual bottle is beyond me. Had I not browsed the website and been to that page, I never would've known about this warning. I wonder if this warning is on the bigger bottles, and if not, how many people have sprayed a cat or puppy without knowing they shouldn't have? I promptly send the company an email and am waiting on a response.

Quality: The sample comes in a regular plastic bottle with a spray pump and plastic dome to protect the pump when not in use.

Summary: Seems like a good spray, and I will continue to use Straight Arrow / Mane n Tail products, but after seeing a product warning on the website (and not its bottle), I'm a bit freaked out. I was originally going to give this a 5, but it deserves a 3 for the heart attack I almost had.
