Maintains healthy hooves by providing protection against a wide spectrum of microbial infections, balancing moisture content of hoof and supplying nutrients needed for strong hoof growth.

4 key ingredients address microbial infections such as thrush, foot rot and canker at the source. Helps increase hoof strength and pliability to prevent cracks. Helps restore and support flexible, healthy hooves. Creates breathable moisture barrier. Antibacterial and antifungal. Leaves hooves with a healthy shine.

Contains purified water, glycerin, zinc pyrithione, xanthan gum, silver nitrate, hydrolyzed keratin, Abyssinian oil, white thyme oil and tea tree oil.

Hoof Therapy is loaded with nutrients that facilitate healthy, strong hoof growth.
  • Zinc pyrithione: Broad spectrum antimicrobial disables cell transport system in fungal and bacterial cells. Disrupts membrane transport by blocking the proton pump that energizes the transport mechanism, starving the cell.

Tea tree oil and thyme oil disrupt permeability of bacterial membrane, causing cell to burst. Tea tree oil and thyme oil stimulate blood flow which assists in distribution of nutrients throughout hoof and expedites hoof growth.

  • Tea tree oil: Acts as an antifungal/antimicrobial agent, effective even against antibiotic resistant microbial strains.
  • White thyme oil: Contains thymol which is potent at combatting bacterial and fungal infections while soothing pain and inflammation.
  • Silver nitrate: Affects several aspects of microbial life including DNA replication, microbial energy production and oxygen use.
Moisturizing:
Glycerin and Abyssinian oil work to balance moisture content of hoof.
  • Glycerin stops evaporation of moisture from hoof through its humectant properties.
  • Abyssinian oil quickly absorbs into coronary band and periople to provide moisture throughout hoof.
Nutrition:
Hydrolyzed keratin absorbed through the coronary band is directly incorporated in the synthesis of the tubules of the outer hoof wall.

Directions: Clean hoof and debride area of infected tissue. Apply into clefts of frog, heel bulb and holes or cracks. In severe cases, hoof can be packed with gauze or cotton after application. For active infections, treat 1-2 times daily for minimum of 3 days. To prevent future infections, treat twice weekly.
