Equine thrush is an infection that affects the hooves of many horses and ponies. It may cause a range of problems including discolouration, discharge, discomfort, unpleasant odour and lameness.
Although many hoof oils, waxes and ointments are available, there is little or no scientific evidence to show they are effective against bacteria and fungi. Silverfeet antimicrobial hoof balm is a new and unique blend of natural ingredients with an important addition – silver.
Laboratory experiments have shown that even in a very low, safe and non-toxic concentration, the silver in Silverfeet prevents the growth of bacteria and fungi sampled from infected hooves within just hours of application. Reduced levels of bacteria and fungi result in a stronger, healthier hoof.
The active ingredient in Silverfeet is Biomaster silver ion technology, an innovative, safe, effective and permanent additive for the control of harmful bacteria, making any substrate cleaner and more hygienic. Biomaster is proven to reduce the growth of MRSA, E.Coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Campylobacter and over 50 other bacteria by up to 99.99%.
Silverfeet antimicrobial hoof balm has a pleasing smell and is formulated to a non-spill but easy-to-apply consistency. It is available in four colours; natural, girly pink, boys’ blue and black; designed to encourage children to actively participate in hoof care.
When Silverfeet is applied, natural hoof colour is not altered but enhanced, producing a lasting shine. Silverfeet both prevents and treats, and should be applied daily for maximum protection.
