This product is formulated to produce a tougher hoof capsule reducing the moisture content and increasing the durability of the hoof.
Dr. Redden has found Keratex Hoof Hardener to be very helpful during the rainy season as an adjunct to preventative foot programs.
Foals and weanlings often have weak hoof capsules during the first few months of life. Dr. Redden advocates daily examination and handling of all four feet. A great time to prevent problems and great training session for all foals. Your farrier will appreciate the effort.
Weak horn often develops splits and cracks that allow moisture and bacteria to enter the sensitive structures which invariably cause painful gravels /abscesses.
Using Keratex daily on the sole and lower wall during wet weather provides a tough, more resilient hoof with far fewer problems.
Weaker, shelly walls respond quite well to daily treatment with a thin coat of Keratex Hoof Hardener. Painting the cracks and crevices eliminates the moist, dark areas that harbor bacteria and fungi therefore keeping feet healthier.
