These top-quality insulated cannon bone/tendon leg wraps stay cold for up to two hours of convenient and thorough cooling of the tendons, ligaments, muscles and connective tissue. The unique design both conforms to the horse's leg and provides optimum compression, assisting the cold penetration of inflamed soft tissue. After just three hours in the freezer, they're ready to use again.
Because there are also times when heat therapy is called for, the pack can just as easily be used for targeted heat application. The application instructions below describe how to properly use the pack for both HOT and COLD therapy.
Ice Horse Tendon Wraps utilize a patented Propylene Glycol formula which is food grade for quality assurance and non-toxic properties.
The Leg Wrap (Boot)
Use two FIRST+ICE packs for each leg wrap applied to the horse's leg(s).
Massage the FIRST+ICE pack to loosen the beads of ice cold relief.
Apply the boots to the treatment area of the leg and secure with the three straps.
After use, the FIRST+ICE insert packs can be wiped down with a damp cloth and returned to the freezer. Store the boot separately in a dry place.
FOR HOT COMPRESS USE
BOILING provides best heating effectiveness.
Bring pan of water to boil. Remove from heat. Place inserts in pan for 8 to 10 minutes. Remove insert from pan. Wrap insert in a light towel. Place in the Ice Horse wrap.
MICROWAVE: Place insert in microwaveable container and cover completely with water. Never heat without covering the insert with water. Place container in microwave. Heat at full power for three (3) minutes (time is based on 600 watt microwave oven). After heating, remove insert from water. Wrap insert in towel or leg or hock wrap, then place on horse's injury. If additional heat is required, heat in 30 second intervals.
