Equi Life Solution4Feet Matrix can be packed into hoof defects or under pads thus allowing the disinfecting power of Equi Life Solution 4 Feet to remain in contact with the hoof horn for up to six weeks. Equi Life Solution4Feet and Equi Life Solution4Feet Matrix are the products of choice when supporting the body’s natural responses to all types of horn infections including thrush, white line disease and seedy toe.
Equi Life Solution4Feet Matrix is a filamentous keratinous base impregnated with the 21st Century hoof disinfectant Solution4 Feet.
Equi Life Solution4Feet Matrix is unique, not only in its composition and texture which allows a continual release of active ingredients into the hoof horn with every step the horse takes, but it conforms to the surrounding horn providing support and encouraging the normal function of the hoof. This is particularly important when large areas of horn have been resected either due to horn infection or acute or chronic founder (severe laminitis).
The hoof is able to resume normal function thereby avoiding the hoof distortions which commonly occur following removal of large areas of hoof horn. The new horn is able to grow into a persistently clean environment.
Equi Life Solution4Feet Matrix retains its activity and supporting role to the hoof throughout a normal shoeing interval. Even when used under pads Solution4 Feet Matrix absorbs the “sweat” from the sole and frog and keeps the horn healthy enabling natural exfoliation of horn. The soles and frogs neither become hard and solid with the adverse effects of “locking” the hoof into an abnormal shape nor do they become “waterlogged” leaving a filthy mess beneath the pad.
Equi Life Solution4Feet Matrix is oxygen permeable and contains no chemicals such as formaldehyde which damage hoof horn.
Equi Life Solution4Feet Matrix allows the hoof to retain its function and malleability during the period of new horn growth.
