Keratex Hoof Putty is great for repairing holes in the soles of a horse’s feet, enabling the owner to turn out with confidence after the cavity has been plugged with Hoof Putty.
It is particularly useful when your horse is recovering from an abscess, puncture or hoof separation.
It can be used in the following ways:
To plug a small, uninfected puncture hole after thoroughly disinfecting the area, allowing you to turn out straight away when a poultice is not required
To plug a puncture or hole left behind after an abscess has been cleared and drained, after thoroughly disinfecting the area, when a poultice is required, allowing you to turn out with confidence after the poultice has been removed
Farriers often use it an additional shock absorber and comforter when used between the lily pad and frog in ponies with spring grass related problems.
To use, simply mould the adhesive putty in clean hands and press into the cavity until you have a dense plug for best results. Keratex Hoof Putty is a semi-permanent wax that seals and stabilises hoof separation, plus it prevents grit, mud and debris getting jammed up into the hole and damaging the recovery process. The adhesive filling mixture also disinfects making it the perfect aid to recovery after punctures, abscesses and cavities.
Please note that Putty will be very hard while in the tin, as it sets to hoof type consistency naturally for best results, but will soften in your hands as you mould the shape you require before re-setting once within the hoof. Keeping the tub at room temperature prior to use or warming it gently in a bowl of warm (not very hot) water will also help with extraction of the putty from the tin.
