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.


Don't Dream it. Be it.

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.
