Fighting Hoof Disease - Now Germs Have No Place To Hide!
A team of hoof researchers and leading farriers have developed new strategies that are
helping win the fight against hoof disease! Article from SBS Equine
Almost everyone agrees that the two most important steps in the treatment or prevention of hoof disease is to clean the feet and
to remove diseased tissue. Your farrier can help by trimming the flaps of the frog and cutting out some of the diseased tissue.
However, it is equally as important for horse owners and their handlers to open up the hooves for oxygen and cleaning. This
can be accomplished by frequently washing the feet and picking & brushing the sole and clefts of the frog.
Choice of Chemical Treatments
Extensive field trials by veterinarians at The Horse-Journal comparing the leading commercial hoof remedies found that caustic
products (copper sulfate, iodine, formalin, chlorine, etc.) may kill moderate thrush, but their repeated use can be harmful to
tender tissue and may slow the healing process. The Horse-Journal said that the ingredients in SBS Thrush Stop were gentle
enough and sufficiently antimicrobial to be reliable for severe thrush (hoof disease) without harming the sensitive surrounding tissue.
Delivery Options for Treating Hoof Disease
There is good news and bad news when it comes to fighting hoof disease. The good news is that scientists say bacteria and
fungi are easy to kill. The bad news is that they are hard to find in the hoof. Germs are very adept at hiding among healthy hoof
tissue. The problem is in delivering the beneficial ingredients to the pathogens where they hide without harming the sensitive
surrounding tissue. SBS EQUINE has products that are proven to defeat pathogens without harming sensitive tissue. You also
have many options for delivering effective treatment where pathogens hide. SBS EQUINE has the products and systems available to help you win the battle against hoof disease.

The most important steps in dealing with hoof disease are cleaning and trimming the hoof. Removing diseased tissue and
opening up the flaps of the frog by your farrier can give you a head start to recovery. Improperly trimmed hooves prevent
oxygen from getting into crevices. Daily picking and brushing also helps to keep the p!athways open for oxygen and better flow of topical treatments to affected areas.!
Chronic hoof infections are deeply rooted and impossible to stop with one application of a strong topical agent. Repeated use
of these strong chemicals can be harmful to the surrounding healthy hoof tissue and slow the healing process. The scientists at
SBS EQUINE have developed product formulas and delivery systems that target bacteria and fungi without harming sensitive hoof tissue, thus allowing them to grow and prosper.
