Ask the Farriers! This stuff makes the foot grow like crazy, and horses that have brittle walls, sensitive soles and problems keeping shoes on are our prime candidates. Some of our clients are able to take full pads and intricate shoes off and return to simple shoes. Others, whose horses are already barefoot, enjoy the easy maintenance of a healthy foot. The DMSO, clove oil and phenol take the sting out of bruised feet within a very short time and can be used during competition when unexpected problems present themselves. Daily use will dramatically improve hoof quality over time. Use only as indicated. Do not take internally. Contains DMSO and phenol.
