Foot Issues

Hoof abscesses occur when bacteria get trapped between the sensitive laminae (the tissue layer that bonds the hoof capsule to the coffin bone) and the hoof wall or sole. The bacteria creates pus, which builds up and creates pressure behind the hoof wall. This pressure can become extremely painful for your horse.

Niagara Equissage Pulse Digital can be tremendously helpful when you have an abscess the farrier will help to cut it out and you will find it is full of pus which you will put a poultice boot on it to help draw this out. However, before you do this use the hand unit in the bulb of the heal and leave it there for around 5 minutes and you will see the pus draw out which is incredibly effective in helping speed up the healing process.
