Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream protects horses and ponies against sore and scabby cracked heels in wet conditions. It soothes and protects inflamed areas and softens scabs naturally, allowing them to fall away without causing any pain to your horse or pony.
This anti-bacterial and anti-fungal cream is rich in Lanolin BP and Concentrated Herbal Oils to waterproof and protect vunerable areas. Lanolin is one the toughest products known for staying on the skin. It also acts as an excellent water barrier without sealing the skin.
Mud, Grit & Wet: In wetter months, when horses and ponies tend to stand around in muddy conditions for longer periods of time, the skin can become weakened, split and inflamed. These are perfect conditions for bacteria and fungi to thrive. Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream is a wonderful product to use as a barrier to help prevent sharp grit from penetrating sore cracked areas and help protect against infection.
Scabs: Never be tempted to pick the scabs off - it is intensely painful to the animal and can cause further infection to develop. Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream softens and loosens scabs naturally. After just a few days the scabs will soften and become loose. Very gently massage will ensure that they come away easily.
Moisture Balance: Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream helps restore the correct moisture balance without impairing the natural skin function, keeping the skin supple and in peak condition.
Directions For Use: Ensure vulnerable areas are reasonably clean prior to application. Apply generously ensuring you make good contact with the skin. Use daily at first and then once or twice weekly. Where redness, scabs and loss of hair are evident, use our Antibacterial Skin Spray to soothe the whole area before applying Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream. Heel to Hoof acts as an excellent barrier against Wet, Mud and Grit.
