The Barrier Boot is an ideal replacement for a lost shoe. It is also an ideal protector for a tender sole or frog, and allows a horse to walk unshod, protecting the sole from cracks and chips. The pull-on fit is simple and the boot stays secure with the adjustable nylon strap which will not damage the hoof wall. Ideal for use with difficult-to-shoe horses, or unshod horses used for trail riding or other leisure activities. The size dimension above is the maximum heel to toe hoof length to fit.
Bovi-Bond from USA is a proven application system for attaching blocks to the healthy claw of lame cow's hooves. Bovi-Bond does not need any special skill to mix and apply. The secret is in the double-barrel 180ml adhesive cartridge and the special dispensing gun. This system ensures that the two parts of the adhesive mixture are kept entirely separate until they merge in the mixing tip. Then as the adhesive moves through the tip the internal spirals mix the product to correct formulation. Using Bovi-Bond is dead easy and needs no special skill: 1. After treating the affected claw, the good claw is trimmed with a hoof knife to leave a clean and dry surface. 2. Install the Bovi-Bond adhesive cartridge in the dispensing gun. Remove the cartridge cap with small cutter or knife, and attach the mixing tip. 3. Squirt adhesive mix onto the correct side (to fit the hoof) of the double-side block. Press the block gently onto the cleaned claw, and hold still for 30 seconds for the adhesive to set. The block will wear off or break off naturally, by which time, if you did the job right, the affected claw should have made a recovery. Next time you need to apply Bovi-Bond, remove and discard the used mixing tip (with set adhesive inside), replace with a new tip and continue as in step 3. above. Bovi-Bond adhesive sets in approximately 30 seconds after application to the block. It can be load-bearing after 2 or 3 minutes (or slightly longer in very cold weather). After some practice, it is quite normal to achieve up to 15 block applications from one adhesive cartridge. The 12-pack set above contains the adhesive cartridge plus 12 mixing tips and 12 blocks. The dispensing gun must be purchased separately. After opening, the Bovi-Bond adhesive cartridge must be used within one year.
'Shoof' is a shoe-for-a-hoof. This product is used for the treatment of lameness in cattle. The Shoof is purposefully constructed in a very open manner. This allows the hoof to 'breathe' which is essential for a fast recovery. The medication and bandage supplied with the Shoof are also essential for successful treatment. The Shoof copper-sulphate medication is effective in curing and hardening the hoof-horn, even in the worst conditions. The special Shoof bandage supplied acts like a filter, keeping dirt out and the copper-sulphate in, even if the animal is walking in very bad conditions (eg: dairy farm roads and yards, and muddy paddocks). Cattle Shoof can be re-used many times with our Shoof Refill-Kit components. Non-standard bandage or medication may cause failure of Shoof. Each Cattle Shoof will last years of re-use.
The greatest advantage of Easy Bloc is the very flexible side wall, which allows a good fit to a wide variety of hoof sizes and shapes and also enables easy removal. Next is the longer and better positioned sole for greater stability, and the slightly extended toe cavity enabling a better fit on overgrown hooves. Easy Bloc is supplied as a complete kit, with four or 12 shoes and the two-part liquid and powder glue components required to attach them. Procedure for use is as follows: 1. The affected claw is examined and treated as required to ensure a fast recovery. 2. The non-affected claw is cleaned and trimmed to a natural shape, compatible with the Easy Bloc. 3. Set the Easy Bloc into the specially designed holder in the package lid, where the glue components are easily added and mixed. 4. Remove Easy Bloc from holder and apply to the healthy claw. Leave in place two to three minutes. 5. Release the cow. Easy Bloc should be removed after 3-4 weeks, if it has not shed naturally. Easy Bloc powder and liquid are also available separately in 12-pack quantities.
