Independent studies have shown growth of up to 3 inches a month when applied to the mane and/or tail. Read more… MTG is also often used on dogs, cats and other livestock. Directions For Use Apply sparingly - the product should not drip or run after applying. Shake bottle thoroughly to mix the sediment and liquid together, repeat periodically during application. No need to pick scabs or wash the area first. The oil in Original M-T-G may make your horse sensitive to the sun and susceptible to sunburn. If the horse spends a lot of time in the direct sun you may want to apply Original M-T-G in early evening. Original M-T-G may produce heat when applied, take care when applying a leg wrap over top of it as it will act as a sweat. No need to wash out or rinse between applications.
