HoofPRIME is a dressing formulated to penetrate the hoof wall and provide nourishment to the inner and outer structures of the hoof wall, ensuring that strength and flexibility are maintained.

During the hot, dry conditions of summer, the hoof has the task of cushioning the impact of a moving 500kg horse. A combination of hard, unyielding surfaces and brittle hooves provides a recipe for subsequent hoof damage and potential lameness. Hooves that are not maintained properly can dry out and lose flexibility, as well as become prone to conditions such as contracted heels, navicular syndrome (continual impact of the toe on hard surfaces) and sand cracks.

Autumn and winter are arguably the harshest times of the year for many reasons –temperature variations, wet weather, muddy conditions and less sunlight. Hooves can bear the brunt of these harsh conditions, absorbing more water and becoming soft or pliable. This provides an opportunity for organisms to break through the protective barrier of the hoof wall and result in infection. HoofPRIME strengthens, protects and nourishes the hoof wall while antibacterial and antifungal properties reduce the risk of infection. Great for use on cracked, dry, brittle hooves and suitable for use in all weather conditions.

Cleanse horse’s hooves thoroughly, then apply HoofPRIME dressing with a brush. Cover the entire hoof, working well into the hairline and around the frog. Apply every alternate day under normal conditions or as required. May be used daily during dry weather or if the hooves are hard and brittle.
