Many horses cannot race to their ability because of pain and discomfort due to soreness. Painaway is a liquid counter-irritant that was formulated to provide temporary relief from soreness and stiffness. Painaway is massaged on to knees, shoulders, hocks, ankles, stifles, back, anywhere pain or soreness exists. There is no need for a wrap. Will not burn or blister. Use as close to training or competition as possible.
