Keratex Hoof Gel
Helps prevent hooves from softening in wet, muddy conditions. Regular use will assist the horse in fighting the effects of everyday life on hooves, such as climate, stabling, schooling and roadwork.
Shake Before Use. Start with a clean, dry hoof. After several applications the hoof will be easier to clean and dry as most water will run off, and what remains can be dried with a cloth. Apply to the hoof wall using a hoof brush. Start just below the coronary band and work downwards. For complete protection, apply to the sole and frog as well. Allow to dry before riding or turning out. When dry, buff with a cloth for a natural sheen.
Keratex Hoof Gel preserves moisture within the hoof at the optimum level. This maintains the flexibility of the hoof wall, heel, sole and frog of the horse `s feet.
Do not use conventional hoof oils and greases with Keratex Hoof Gel. Use every 2 days except in dry conditions, when Hoof Gel can be applied every 4 days. Apply an extra coat before riding out in snow or in extremely wet, muddy conditions.
