Problems it Addresses
White Line Disease is due to a combination of bacterial and fungal organisms invading the middle hoof wall. Hoof cracks, old nail holes, white line separations and other hoof wall defects allow these “hoof eating” microbes to gain access to the nutrient rich middle hoof wall. The low oxygen environment creates an ideal site for these organisms to multiply and weaken the hoof wall structure, leading to additional defects and collapsing hoof horn.
Thrush is a microbial invasion of the sole and frog tissue often leading to tender feet, heel pain and lameness.
Life Data® Hoof Clay is an easy to apply and long lasting antimicrobial hoof packing for wall cracks, wall defects, old nail holes, hoof wall separations, and white line disease in barefoot or shod horses. Life Data® Hoof Clay is also effective as a sole packing for thrush.
