Overview

Why We Love This

Original M-T-G has been providing quick and effective relief from numerous skin ailments since 1938! Originally formulated for humans, this safe and easy to use product is the only one needed for relief from a variety of bacterial and fungal skin problems, such as: 

• Rain Rot
• Scratches
• Girth Itch
• Sweet Itch
• Dry Skin
• Tail/Mane

Original M-T-G provides results after just one application! Formulated to eliminate the causative agent creating the skin problem, it conditions the skin and hair around the damaged area, promoting both healthy skin and maximum hair growth. In fact, Original M-T-G has proven to work exceptionally well promoting hair growth. Users report up to 3 inches of new growth on manes and tails in a single month.

Original M-T-G creates a healthy environment for the hair follicle, resulting in maximum growth while keeping the length of the hair shaft soft and pliable for minimum breakage. Original M-T-G is a time-tested, user-supported solution to both skin healing and hair growth in a single bottle. An oil-based product that does not require washing or water for application, it is not only easy to use, but great for cold weather.

Original M-T-G is also safe and effective on dogs and other animals’ skin problems, such as hot spots, itching and dry skin.

Shapley's Original M-T-G is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 158.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from MTG Discussion page for horse health has posted over and over how it burns the horse-even if it helps some and burns others it should be taken off market to prevent burning and sores in horses!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RAPID RESULTS AFTER ONLY A COUPLE OF APPLICATIONS, THE POSITIVE RESULTS WERE EVIDENT. GREAT PRODUCT.
Date published: 2017-10-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stinky, but effective! This stuff really has a strong smell, but it is great stuff! It treats almost any skin condition or patch of lost hair, and it helps with dandruff also. I always keep a bottle on hand!
Date published: 2017-04-06
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Amazing! I used MTG on my show horse's tail (since the braiding makes the hair fall out) and it has not only grown back fuller, but it is also shinier than ever.
Date published: 2017-01-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It really works! I use M-T-G on my horses tail every winter as well as braiding it down and bagging it. It really helps to grow his tail during our down months!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for skin issues! This is a great product for a variety of skin issues. I have used it to treat rain rot as well as other skin fungus. I have also used it to help hair grow back in places where my horse has rubbed his hair off. It is very safe, which is a big plus for me. It's only downside is that it doesn't smell good. However, they also sell one which is supposed to smell better (but I haven't tried it).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product, multiple uses! This is a great product for many uses ! I've used it to treat scratches , and to promote tail hair growth, I use it to promote overall coat growth, it adds a nice sheen and conditions hooves and softens dry skin patches.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I have a very sensitive skinned chestnut who always seems to have perpetual scurf/rain rot in various areas of his body. I've always been careful of what products I use to treat his skin issues as many things I've tried have made him break out in hives. I was worried about trying this on him as it seemed strong, but he had no bad reaction to it AND it cleared up ALL his skin issues within two days! I'm truly amazed by how well this has worked and I plan to always keep some around now should he ever have a flare up again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DO NOT BUY I used MTG on my horse as a treatment for rain rot, it cleared it up but caused a massive sore on his butt ( which WAS NOT rain rot). Unless you want your horse to have sores, DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!! If I could rate this product a zero I WOULD! It also turned my palomino's mane green!
Date published: 2016-07-31
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Chestnuts! My new horse is a chestnut and this is the best product for his sensitive coat! He got a case of rain rot and it did wonders to clear it up and grow the hair back quick. I use it as a preventative now as well as to condition his tail . I have also started using it on his legs. I use wear disposable gloves just to make clean up easier but you can put it on with bare hands and it is good for your hands too. It does separate in the bottle so just give the bottle a good shake. I can't say enough about this product and how great it is and how many uses there are for it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great - takes time I've been using this product for a few weeks now to treat scratches on my Senior OTTB's back feet pasterns. It's taking some time but does seem to be working. Be diligent and give it some time. Smells bad so I wear latex gloves.
Date published: 2016-07-12
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smells great &I it works! I bought this for my mare that scratches - it was very easy to use and my mare loves it!
Date published: 2016-05-03
Rated 5 out of 5 by from this is the good stuff I have added this to my coat dressing mix for my show cattle, it is great for all skin issues and keep the coats in shape, I use it every time I groom cattle for show or sale.
Date published: 2015-09-28
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Used it forever! Read the bottle!!! Test your horse for a reaction before using this product!! I like to test on an inconspicuous patch on the rump, if there is a reaction it won't be hideously in the way. I started using this when my gelding lost his forelock! It kind of grows the hair back in little tufts if you apply it to the whole follicle. I recommend really trying to get only the roots of the hair. I've used this on blanket rubs, trailer tail rubs, and mare tail. If you're put off by that smell I'm sorry but most medications don't smell pleasant and this is in my opinion a medication. It does work, just crinkles your nose. Also, people use it on themselves? I haven't tried it but I hear it works!
Date published: 2015-09-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle for rain rot! My poor boy got a pretty nasty case of rain rot recently. I tried for the better part of a week to treat it with other shampoos and sprays. I was leery of using the MTG because I was concerned about sunburn (its oily and I had read it may cause sunburn). However, boy am I glad I did finally try it!! I liberally put the MTG on his rain rot areas one evening and let it be overnight. The next day I was amazed! Those nasty little patches came right off with a sponge and some water! No more picking at my poor sensitive skinned boy, or rubbing him raw with curry combs! This will be the FIRST thing I grab next time, so I can start regrowing hair and stop tormenting my pony!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from DOES THE JOB I am using this for itchy tail. It seems to take immediate effect. I did it 3 days in a row just to be sure.
Date published: 2015-07-02
Rated 5 out of 5 by from WORKS PERFECTLY Two of my mares had rain rot on their hindquarters last year and this got rid of it all within a week or so! I ever recommended it to a friend (her horse had pretty bad rain rot that just wouldn't go away) and it cleared it all up! If you're looking to get rid of your horses rain rot, definitely use Shapley's Original M-T-G!!!
Date published: 2015-06-23
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smelly and greasy...but it WORKS! I was losing a battle with rain rot on my mare's hind legs. I had been washing her legs with the medicated Eqyss shampoo and applying the Equyss spray afterward, but after a week the rain rot was not getting any better, it was actually spreading (her taking daily mud baths while out in the pasture during the day was obviously not helping, but the weather in Texas this year has been rather wet!!!). So I bought a bottle of MTG at my local feed store. It is smelly (smells more like rotten egg than bacon in my opinion) and super greasy, BUT in two applications, her rain rot was gone!!! So I will put up with the cons (I do wear gloves when applying, which makes a huge difference) since the product really exceeded my expectations. I have not used it for hair growth and not sure if i could put up with my mare having a greasy and smelly tail/mane... But I will definitely use it again for medicated purposes. I do wish it came in a spray bottle though...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent product - have used it for years My horse came in his stall today and turned his rump to me and looked at me. I figured out he had an itchy tail and applied MTG liberally. He couldn't have thanked me more clearly.....great stuff !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I've got a 9 month filly with dry skin in her mane - so I've been using this once a week for the last 3 weeks now & it looks so much better! I also have a 10 year old Morgan with a tail I can NOT get to grow out so I've been applying this once a week for the last 3 weeks and HOLY SMOKES it already looks so much better! I'm so happy I ordered this and I can't wait to see how it keeps working!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It WORKS! Miracle Product! I bought this for my new lease and I LOVE it! When I came to try him, I noticed that he had ugly rain rot on the back of his gaskins. I heard that MTG is THE product to use for rain rot, and everyone is right! I made sure that no one else was applying anything to his rain rot to make sure there was nothing for it to react to (I'm not sure if MTG reacts with anything, but I don't want to make anything worse) and started applying it. I only see him about 4 times a week, so after the first time I applied it and came back a couple days after, his rain rot had healed by 50%! I have been applying it about 2x a week (I have gotten a little slack about it) and it's been getting better, but when I only aapply it once a week it's not enough to cure it. I'm sure if I get more strict about applying it often, then it will heal. I sort of wish that it came in a different dispenser; when I apply it to his rain rot it's very sensitive and he lashes our with his hind legs. I have been applying it with a cloth to reduce him getting annoyed by it, but I think it works best when you can dispense it directly to the area without putting it on a rag first- it's a bit more concentrated. (And is it bad that I enjoy the semi-burnt bacon smell??) I haven't gotten a chance to use it on his mane or tail yet. His mane is pretty thick already, and I'm worried it may make his tailbone look greasy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SMELLY, BUT WORKS!! This stuff really works! Be sure to shake it well and put it on clean skin/hair. It does collect dirt because of the oil, but works great, especially on itchy horses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from anyone with any type of feathered horse, for prevention of scratches.. MTG will save alot of headaches..Best for rainrot...Love, love . It does everything it says it does, with many uses...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this product! Used this to clear up rain rot on my horse! Cleared it up quickly! Also good to use on horses with feather!
Date published: 2014-10-20
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Truly Works & On Humans Also! I've used this and my hair grows extremely fast. Normally I have super-slow growing hair. But every time I have used M-T-G (once per week) my hair grows only after a few days of each use. It doesn't grow super long, but it does grow quickly. I'm a keeper. Also there's folks that use it on their horses that love it also and their horse's manes and tails are very, very long after such a short time!!! It smells like burnt bacon, but it's worth it.
Date published: 2014-10-13
Rated 4 out of 5 by from WORKS GREAT It works great on rain rot. After treating with other products for weeks we saw and improvement in one use. I've also used it as a tail detangler for a horse with a VERY matted tail and it worked GREAT. The only negative thing about this product is the smell.
Date published: 2014-10-03
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product This worked great I have been battling this fungus for 6 months without much of a dent and one week of treatment it is almost gone...now if it wouldn't smell so bad it would have gotten a 5*
Date published: 2014-08-22
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Grooming staple This stuff is really magic. Despite smelling a bit like bacon...its really helped my mare's tail and mane. I also put a bit in her ears occasionally because she tends to get dry/flaky skin. It's completely done away with her dry itchy ears as well! There's multiple uses for this product and its definitely a grooming staple!
Date published: 2014-08-05
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product!! I bought MTG to treat rain rot and scratches on my mare. It began to clear up both issues within days! I am utterly amazed by this product! I don't even care that it smells like a smoldering camp fire, It works and that is all that matters to me!!
