Strips that are exposed to extreme heat or cold may damage the medical-grade adhesive and not adhere properly. If it's chilly outside and a FLAIR Strip will be used, we recommend placing the Strip inside your jacket for 5-10 minutes before applying to allow the Strip to warm up to at least room temperature.
For best results, apply the Strips 30 minutes prior to any exercise, riding or other activity that might cause the horse to sweat.
Use a clean, dry cloth, piece of vet wrap, or paper towel to remove dirt and oil prior to applying. DO NOT use water or gels on the application area.
FLAIR Strips have a unique adhesive that is designed to flow into and adhere to the horse’s hair.
FLAIR Strips have a gentle adhesive that is developed for the health and safety of the horse.
Forming a crease on the tabbed edges of the Strip help the tabs stick to the horse's nose more securely.
Touching the adhesive will reduce the Strip’s ability to stick to your horse.
This placement provides optimal support for the soft tissue of the nasal passage.
Peel gently, but firmly from the top corner toward the middle. Adhesive may cause slight loss of hair, as experienced with normal shedding.
