How To Treat Common Hoof Problems

Posted on: January 6th, 2018 by Liddleworks Indie Media No Comments

Prevention is key to avoiding hoof problems that can turn into long-term health issues. Paying close attention to the season and its associated conditions is the first step to anticipating potential hoof hazards.  Winter weather can especially dry the hoof wall out, so consider a moisturizer.

Other common hoof problems come with their own set of natural treatments so you don’t have to keep the vet on speed dial. Here are our most effective treatments for common hoof problems.

A Regular Farrier Appointment

Like an annual trip to the dentist for humans, routine farrier care is vital to preventing hoof problems and catching more serious ones before they reach that point. Consider shoeing for different weather and footing conditions. Every six to eight weeks from the time your horse is one month old is a good place to start.

Regular Shoeing Treats: Laminitis (inflammation), Navicular disease

Apple Cider Vinegar

Strong hooves are essential to a healthy horse. A regular dose of diluted, raw apple cider vinegar applied to picked-out hooves keeps them strong. The enzymes promote circulation, which in turn stimulate hoof growth.

ACV Treats: Thrush, White Line disease

Liquid DMSO

Liquid DMSO, also known as dimethyl sulfoxide, is a substance used by many farriers and has many medical applications. While some believe the substance can be harmful, it has proven effective in the treatment of horse hoof problems when applied correctly and can encourage healing and growth.

Liquid DMSO treats: Hoof infection, stimulates repair

Leg Saver

Our holistic Ting Point Therapy targets inflammation to treat lameness and accelerate recovery time and hoof growth – up to half an inch of growth per month!

Leg Saver Treats: Laminitis, (inflammation) Joint problems

Heel support and regular trimming are also important to maintaining good hoof health. Keep in mind that all of the treatments listed above are meant to help, but may not cure the problem in its entirety. Always consult with a professional if a problem persists.

Navicular Disease Equine

The hoof of the horse is a very difficult to repair.  We have seen so many horse come lame from Puss Pockets, Quarter Cracks, Navicular, Laminitis and other forms of disease and injury.

There has been a lot of treatments that are good but not that successful at creating a quality hoof with excellent growth.

The must be an increase of Blood flow to the hoof.  This is very difficult for any treatment to be successful in any way to create this.

We have found that the LEG SAVER creates maximum Blood flow while killing all of the infection in the hoof.   It does take time as some hooves are so badly infected that the horse can hardly walk.  We have treated a horse Uptown Mike for 4 days and nights yes 24 hours a day for 4 days and nights.   He started out so lame he could not walk out of his stall and in 4 days walked out dead sound.  The trainer tacked him up and jogged for several miles.   The puss & infection that came out was massive while he was jogging.  He went on to win a lot of races starting at $3000 & rose all the way up to $30,000.

This was all possible with the LEG SAVER and a lot of patience of the trainer.  I kept telling him to leave it on, the infection will come out.

We have people that use Poultice for the hoof and that is a mistake.  A number of professionals and Universities have informed us that the poultice is very bad for the hoof as it draws out much of the natural quality oils that are in the hoof and traps in the dreaded inflammation.

Poultice in not good for the hoof or the leg and tendons as it traps in the inflammation that has to be flushed out with fresh blood flow.   Fresh Blood flow is much superior than poultice at reducing inflammation.  You must remove the inflammation in any injury for there to be any success in bring the horse to normal soundness.

Treating the hoof has become a lot easier for anyone using the LEG SAVER micro-current and the LEG SAVER ICING BOOTS.
