Pfizer Animal Health
Solitude IGR
Fly Control



Manufacturer: Pfizer Animal Health
Model: Solitude IGR
Category: Fly Control

Purchase: Comes in 20-pound tub for about $260, 6-pound tub for about $85 or 2-pound tub for $35. We paid $84.95 at Elston's, a local feed and grain store. You top-dress feed with 1/2 oz. per day per horse beginning in late spring.

Likes: If you're considering feed-through fly control, don't waste your money on other products. We've tried them all and Solitude is the only one that truly works. It's more expensive than other brands (SimpliFly, Equitrol, etc.), but on closer examination, you'll see that the dosage is far less per pound of body weight than the other brands. A little goes a long with. With 12 horses, we used up two large buckets one spring-summer season and had nearly fly-free existence.

Dislikes: It takes extra time to feed the horses in the morning to be sure each one gets a dose. This is easy if they're in separate corrals but if you have three or four horses in a large corral, it's time consuming and almost necessitates hand feeding. It's a bit pricey, too, but if you HATE flies, it's worth the cost.

Quality:

Summary: Solitude works, especially when combined with fly sprays. I like it because there are no toxic chemicals sprayed everywhere and our horses love not being fly sprayed and not having to put up with flies. This will be the third year we've used it and will continue using it unless something even better comes out. Unlike other brands, this can be used in pregnant mares and stallions, too.
