Keratex Hoof Gel

Keratex Hoof Gel

 Keratex Hoof Gel - The Ultimate All Year Protection For Hooves.

  • Keratex Hoof Gel keeps hoof horn water tight in wet weather, stops cracking in dry. Not a damaging oil, but a powerful hydrophobic treatment that leaves the hoof glistening dry.
     

  • While Keratex Hoof Hardener repairs damage to the hoof horn's molecular structure caused by water and ammonia, Keratex Hoof Gel quite simply stops the damage from happening in the first place.

  • Keratex Hoof Gel protects hooves from damage caused by manure, urine and excess water absorption.

  • Keratex Hoof Gel allows the hoof to breathe. Air can pass freely through Keratex Hoof Gel in either direction and excess moisture can be expelled from the hoof. No water or typical chemicals can enter the hoof from the outside.

Most problems resulting in hooves cracking and losing shoes are caused by the effects of water and ammonia. Keratex Hoof Gel protects the whole hoof capsule by providing a barrier against adverse environmental influences acting on the integrity of hoof horn.

Normal hoof oils and greases offer little protection against environmental damage. Once they come in contact with ammonia from urine, they become water soluble emulsions which are quickly washed off, allowing both water and ammonia to permeate the horn.

To maintain a healthy hoof capsule, Keratex Hoof Gel allows the horn to breathe. This means that air can pass freely through Keratex Hoof Gel in either direction and excess moisture can be expelled from the hoof, but no water or chemicals can enter the hoof from outside, The function is much the same as semi-permeable cloth used for outdoor clothing, which allows moisture out, but prevents rain from getting in.

Horn does not need extra moisture from external sources as the hoof capsule will take care of that naturally from inside. Constant changes in the moisture content of the hoof will result in cracking during the Summer.

Used as a standard hoof treatment throughout the year, Keratex Hoof Gel will maintain the moisture content of the hoof at the same natural level, rain or shine, Summer or Winter, turned out or stabled in. This is the answer to maintaining hooves in a healthy condition throughout the year. Hooves will naturally become stronger, harder and more able to resist the stresses of shoeing and work.

Because of the waterproofing effect, hooves are easier to clean and dry. Keratex Hoof Gel also contains a natural disinfectant to maintain hooves in a healthy condition.

Keratex Hoof Gel will help prevent snowballing if applied regularly to the sole and frog and immediately before going in the snow.

If you are showing or going to an event, all you need to do is apply Keratex Hoof Gel, let it dry, and then buff it with a cloth to have a super natural sheen on the hooves. Keratex Hoof Gel does not attract bedding, grass and dust in the same way as grease and oil type hoof dressings. 

User Notes  -  Sold in 1 liter and 500 ml plastic bottles

Degrease the hoof with acetone to remove any previous hoof dressings. Use a standard hoof brush to coat the whole hoof, starting just below the coronary band. Coat the outer horn, heels, sole and frog with Keratex Hoof Gel. This will effectively protect the entire hoof from the effects of water and ammonia.

For horses stabled in, use every two days. Horses kept out in wet conditions, use every two days. Horses kept out in dry conditions, use every four days. Always apply an extra coat of Keratex Hoof Gel before riding in wet or muddy weather.
