Hoof Poultice-NEED HELP

What do you do when you need to poultice your horses hoof? I've tried the DURVET INC EPSOM SALT POULTICE



But it really didn't seem to be working that much. So then I started looking around more and tried the 3M Animalintex Hoof Poultice Pad. Still saw no results. I tried cold and hot with the pads. At the moment I am trying Farriers' Fix hoof oil and then packing her feet with Magic Cushion Hoof Packing. This is the first night I am trying it.

Do you know how deep it is ? Why do you think its not getting better ? Has a vet seen to it ? How long has he had the bruise ?

Sorry for all the questions, just need more info !

Its not very deep, its from a really tough trail ride. Yes the vet has, just told me to poultice it. Its getting somewhat better. And about 2 weeks.

I alternated using DMSO and sugardine on the last bruise I treated. Still took a while to heal, but it did!

A couple of helpful links on sugardine:

This will give the best resuls of anything.

Bruises take time. If horse need to be in work, then shoes and pads will be needed.

So the Magic Cushion is amazing! She improved 98% better. She was still a little off but it was amazing!
