Specialized fiber paper holds the poultice mixture within quilted pockets. The poultice contains kaolin clay and epsom salt that creates a contact gel when activated by water. This helps the poultice stay in contact with the hoof for easy wrapping. Great during cold weather or when water availability is limited. Light on water usage and easy on hands and drains. Can be used whenever heat is of concern: after competition, heavy work, general soreness, filled legs, or bruising. All-in-one solution: soak in ice water for an initial cold therapy and poultice with just one application.
Contains kaolin clay, epsom salt and guar gum enclosed in a fiber paper mix.
Directions: Clean hoof thoroughly before wrapping. Submerge hoof pad in warm or cold water for 15-20 seconds. Be sure that poultice pockets are sufficiently wet, they will expand slightly when wet. Drain excess water back into pail. Place over hoof sole, excess pad can be tucked under. Cover pad with self-adhering wrap, then cover with duct tape or hoof boot. Pad typically remains wet for 12-18 hours. May be left on up to 18 hours. Single use application – once hoof pad is dry it cannot be reused. Easy clean up – simply remove wrapping and pad. Quilted design eliminates poultice residue.
