The Future of Sanitation: Ionopure Pet Health Brings a New Level of Care to the World of Equine Sports


There are places we think of as clean and places we think of as less hygienic.

Adella Thompson, an experienced horse trainer and enthusiast, has no doubt which category her favorite place is in.

“I work in a barn,” Thompson said. “There’s a lot of manure and urine. There are horses everywhere. There are dogs everywhere. It’s a setting where you’re constantly cleaning out stalls, cleaning and grooming horses, feeding horses, watering horses, using buckets over and over again, and then caring for their medical needs.”

While pet owners are used to tricking their pooch or kitten into hopping in the car for a trip to the vet, a horse requires a vet to make house calls. That’s why Thompson, and many other horse-lovers, have learned so many tricks and tips on how to care for horses and take care of the smaller nicks and cuts suffered rather than constantly having a vet come to the stable.

Not long ago, Thompson noticed one of her horses suffered an injury at a show that required some attention. Fortunately, she had been turning to Ionogen products for some time and knew of a quick fix.

“She had a cut over her left eye. It didn’t require stitches, but it was deep, and it was bleeding. I immediately sprayed it with Ionopure Pet Health, and I watched the cut heal itself on its own,” she said.

John Shanahan, President and CEO of Ionogen, was pleased to hear of the product’s uses in the equine community, even if it wasn’t a use case he initially had in mind.

“We created Ionopure Pet Health because there was a gap for household pets in having products that could really be effective on things like hotspots, cuts and abrasions, and even rinsing the eyes and things like that,” he said. “There were other products that kind of existed in the space, but, in our opinion, they were too underpowered, they were too weak, and they didn’t actually perform and weren’t remaining stable enough for a long period of time.”

Ionopure Pet Health turned out not only to keep stable, but also to be effective in the stable, with its use in equine settings likely to continue for years to come.
