Keratex Hoof Hardener formula is patented and includes a unique flexibility agent as well as a hardening agent, making this the perfect product to protect your horse from:
- brittle,cracked,soft or weak hooves;soft, sensitive or thin soles; repeated shoe loss; transition to barefoot; hoof damage.
Keratex Hoof Hardener will strengthen and protect shod and unshod hooves, to restore soundness after sensitive soles and to prevent existing cracks from laddering up or across the hooves. Keratex Hoof Hardener strengthens weak, worn and cracked hooves by improving the structure of the horn itself.
Equally effective in wet & dry conditions. Prevents the horn from taking in excess moisture, making it resistant to softening and weakening in wet conditions. This results in a reduction in shoe loss and abscesses. Keratex Hoof Hardener is not an oil or resin layer and does not seal the hoof. Hoof Hardener will ensure the treated hoof is able to breathe naturally so the moisture balance is properly maintained. It works by cross-linking the keratins and proteins within the internal structures of the hooves, making hooves stronger from the inside out. Because it absorbs into the hooves, it will not come off in the field, it will continue to work within the hoof whatever the weather and whatever the field conditions
