Keratex Hoof Putty is great for repairing holes in the soles of a horse’s feet, enabling the owner to turn out with confidence after the cavity has been plugged with Hoof Putty. It is particularly useful when your horse is recovering from an abscess, puncture or hoof separation. Ideal for use plugging a small, uninfected puncture hole after thoroughly disinfecting the area, allowing you to turn out straight away when a poultice is not required. Can also be used to plug a puncture or hole left behind after an abscess has been cleared and drained, after thoroughly disinfecting the area, when a poultice is required, allowing you to turn out with confidence after the poultice has been removed. Farriers often use it as an additional shock absorber and comforter when used between the lily pad and frog in ponies with spring grass related problems.
