   Avoid A Hoof Soaking Disaster!

Soaking the hoof can be an effective way of treating against chronic infections, but there can be serious consequences if done carelessly.  Researchers at SBS recommend some simple rules that can help horse owners avoid a hoof soaking disaster like this one…


Hoof Soaking Disaster

Reasons Why Soakings Is Dangerous


Soaking the hoof in any liquid for an extended period of time can wash away the natural protective coating provided through transpiration. In time soaking can weaken the entire hoof structure and damage healthy hoof tissue. Since many commercial preparations and harsh household products may work well on hard surfaces by burning pathogens to death, they can also seriously harm to new hoof tissue. Keep in mind that a healthy hoof will grow out an astonishing rate of 3/8″ a month. Damaged cells will not grow out like healthy tissue. Damage can be long term or permanent.
