Hoof Poultice - Pulled out deep hoof infection
I have a 27 year old gelding that was lame on one of his front feet. I had heard of these 3M hoof poultices from Clinton Anderson's tour so I thought I would try it.
The infection was deep. All I could see was some puss coming from under the frog of the hoof. So I applied the pre-cut hoof shape poultice hot and wrapped the foot. He was starting to put pressure on it within a day. I pulled it and applied a second one and within two days, he was looking much better. I left the second poultice on for a few days.
Great product! I will always have a few of these on hand just in case. I did not have any additional problems with the hoof after the poultice treatment. My old horse is back in shape and ready for use!
Here is a good youtube video on the 3M Poultice and how to wrap your horses foot. I have wrapping a foot before, but the wrap did not last long. This procedure really works and keeps the wrap and poultice in place. This is the second part of the video which shows the wrapping procedure. I also added a layer of Duct Tape on the bottom of the hoof after wrapping with Vet Wrap.
