Zinc Sulphate and Eucalyptus based thrush buster spray.
Sole Cleanse has remarkable effectiveness, without any of the necrotising effects of traditional treatments such as Borax, Bleaches, Peroxide and Stockholm Tar. Sole Cleanse not only helps to destroy the microbes producing the thrush but also helps promote the re-growth of healthy tissue, rather than producing more dead tissue for the thrush to re-grow on.
Sole Cleanse Spray is for more regular treatment of the foot. Once weekly for thrush prone horses or daily until symptoms abate for established thrush is often sufficient although it is so gentle and economical that many customers use it daily “Just in case!”. It is provided in a convenient 500 ml spray and will often stop thrush in just a few treatments. It has also been found useful in the treatments of white line disease and other crevices in the horses foot.
Sole Cleanse contains:
- Zinc Sulphate – a powerful yet safe antibacterial and antifungal ingredient. Zinc sulphate can be found in many nutritional supplements – this reflect how non-toxic it is! It is not only very effective against invasive microbes but it also acts to toughen horn tissue and has no detrimental effects on the sole unlike many commonly used anti-thrush remedies
- Eucalyptus Oil – also well known for its antimicrobial qualities, this essential oil helps to eliminate thrush and condition the sole.
All in a water base so that it can be conveniently sprayed onto the feet after picking out.
Using Sole Cleanse depends on what you are using it for:
For severe hoof problems – use twice daily on the sole after picking out, reduce frequency of applicaiton as symptoms start to improve. For general hoof health – apply weekly after picking out to keep the soles and frogs in good condition. For cavities and holes – clean what loose debris you can away and spray Sole Cleanse into the hole. Allow to dry and pack with Artimud (shallower holes) or Hoof-Stuff (deeper holes) Avoid using on areas of open flesh as Sole Cleanse may sting.
Warning! Protect eyes during application.
