For use on equine ailments including abscesses, thrush, seedy toe and greasy heel.
Absorbing and adsorbing actions of clay Clays with absorbing properties expand when wet, acting like a sponge to soak up toxins.
In contrast to absorption, certain clays have adsorption properties. Adsorption occurs when molecules of one substance adhere to the surface of another substance. Clays that are negatively charged act like a magnet, pulling positively charged toxins to them.
Calcium bentonite is one of the few clays that can both absorb and adsorb.
The addition of a blend of pure essential oils in our Happy Hoof Healing Clay gives this the ability to draw out toxins but also enables healing of the wound or abscess.
How clay poultices work Clay poultices were once referred to as “drawing salves” because of the actions that removed or assisted the flow of debris through an opening in the skin (for example a wound, boil, ulceration, bite, or abscess). Poultices increase circulation, which, in turn, increases oxygen to the area being treated.
Poultices that contain smectite clays, such as calcium bentonite are powerful osmotics that help to remove excess fluid, allowing fresh tissue fluid to circulate into the area, bringing protective blood cells, nutrients, and oxygen to the site.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE: Pack the hoof with clay and wrap and/or cover with a hoof boot. Works brilliantly with the Tubbease Hoof Boot which is also available on our website. May be left on for 2-3 days depending on ailment.
For greasy heel apply a thick coating to the affected area once a day.
INGREDIENTS: Calcium Bentonite Clay, Essential Oils, Purified Water.
**If clay is too dry add water.
