Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream

Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream has been designed especially to protect horses and ponies against sore and scabby cracked heels. Loosens scabs, waterproofs and protects but does NOT seal the skin.

Uses: Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream is a wonderful product to help protect and soothe inflamed areas where soreness, swelling and scabs are evident. It will soften scabs naturally allowing them to fall away without causing any pain to your horse or pony.

Bacteria/Fungi: Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.

Protector: This unique cream is rich in Lanolin BP and Concentrated Herbal Oils to waterproof and protect vunerable areas. Lanolin is one the toughest products known for staying on the skin. It also acts as an excellent water barrier WITHOUT sealing the skin.

Mud, Grit & Wet: In wetter months, when horses and ponies tend to stand around in muddy conditions for longer periods of time, the skin can become weakened, split and inflamed. These are perfect conditions for bacterial and fungal conditions, such as spre and cracked heels to thrive. Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream is a wonderful product to use as a barrier to help prevent sharp grit from penetrating sore cracked areas and help protect against infection.

Scabs: Never be tempted to pick the scabs off - it is intensely painful to the animal and can cause further infection to develop. Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream softens and loosens scabs naturally. After just a few days the scabs will soften and become loose. Very gently massage will ensure that they come away easily.

Moisture Balance: Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream helps restore the correct moisture balance without impairing the natural skin function, keeping the skin supple and in peak condition.

Directions For Use: Ensure vulnerable areas are reasonably clean prior to application. Apply generously ensuring you make good contact with the skin. Use daily at first and then once or twice weekly. Where redness, scabs and loss of hair are evident, use our Antibacterial Skin Spray to soothe the whole area before applying Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream. Heel to Hoof acts as an excellent barrier against Wet, Mud and Grit.

Endorsements: 'I used this cream on my horses girth/armpit to treat some little lumps with scabby tops (sweaty bumps). Within 24 hours the improvement was terrific, and 48 hours almost completely cleared up. My friend had used this on girth galls and recommended it.
A versatile product, thank you.'

Endorsements: 'I just thought I would take this opportunity to write to you and say how wonderful your heel to hoof cream is. I run a stud with many youngsters and following this hot wet summer ended up with a mud fever epidemic!! The youngsters were very difficult to treat and hated their heels being touched, but decided to try your product as others seemed to make little difference. Within a couple of treatments, the scabs fell off easily and the youngsters were once again happy to have their heels touched as they found your product so soothing. Within a couple of weeks the scabs were now nonexistent and condition cured. I was so impressed I tell all my liveries now and they too have shared in the success of your product. I even love the smell and it makes my hands quite soft! My only compaint is that i cant buy a large enough tub at my local shop. Your product has resulted in many happy horses and owners and i will continue to use it as a preventative measure. Thank you very much.' Katriona Sharp, Hythe, Kent.

Endorsements: 'I'm not one to write reviews or feedback on products I buy but I just wanted to write to you to say how thrilled I am with your heel to hoof product. My 19 yr old horse has suffered with mud fever for the past 7 or 8 years and I've tried various products with different levels of success. This year he has had it particularly bad. He has 3 white legs and one was especially bad with large crusty scabs. I was using other well known products every couple of days without any success and the scabs were increasing. It got to the point where he wouldn't let me touch the leg and was on bute for the discomfort. A friend recommended your product and I bought a tub (not sure why I wasn't aware you did a mud fever product, I've used your flyspray for years as its the only one that works!!). I washed his legs to get them clean and dry, then applied your product and massaged it into his legs, rubbing it into the scabs. I was so pleased the next day when I checked his legs and most of the scabs had come off, the rest came off as I washed his legs. I repeated the washing and applying the cream that night and after only 3 applications he has a fraction of the scabs he had before and they're now ready to come off. His skin is starting to look less chapped and sore already and he's happier with me touching them. The cream goes on so well, it's not like glue as with some other products and you can rub it right into the skin. It's literally improved his condition overnight! He still has a way to go before his legs are all clear but I will be sticking with heel to hoof and recommending it to anyone who's horse has mud fever. Thankyou for another fantastic product, it's great to have something that works, is easy to apply and is accepted by my horse!
The good news now is that Bonzo's legs are completely scab free, still a little on the pink side but that's after just 5 applications of heel to hoof and I've been trying for 2 months to rid him of them. When I wash his legs down before applying it its good to see that his legs are still "waterproofed" after 2 or 3 days after he last had it put on so it's a great barrier cream too. My last resort was going to be a call to the vet but I won't need to now. I use your Super Plus fly spray repellent as its the only one that genuinely works! I can't get the smell off my hands for hours even after washing them so I have confidence that it doesn't wear off for ages! Thanks for the recommendation of the anti-bacterial skin spray. I'll give it a go along with the cream as I believe the hibiscrub I used was too harsh on his skin and starting to aggravate it rather than help.
I was just so pleased with the results that I wanted to let you know. It's so difficult with the huge amount of products on the market finding one that actually works and priced realistically.
Two months on - just wanted to let you know that Bonzo is officially mud fever free! I think the dry weather has helped but since using the Anti bacterial skin spray with the Heel to Hoof he's just got better and better. His skin has fully repaired and he's no longer sore. Even looking at bringing him back into work! Thanks, Jane Watson & Bonzo, Churwell, Leeds

Endorsement: 'I would just like to thank you for your Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream, which I have been using for mud fever. I have a young horse, which a week ago I noticed slight swelling and scabs on her legs. I immediately bought some other product from my local equestrian shop, applied it as directed and if anything it made her legs worse than ever. In desperation I went onto the internet and saw Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream, which I bought.
I washed her legs, dried them and then covered them with your cream. The next morning all the swelling had gone down and 90% of the scabs and dead tissue had gently come away, painlessly. I have continued to use Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream as a preventative and I'm thrilled with it.
It is extremely easy to apply, it doesn't harden and seems to warm and melt easily onto the skin, making application easy, especially when the legs are sore and you need to be as quick and gentle as possible.
Thank you again, I have never written to anyone before about a product, but I'm so thrilled with the cream that I will always have a supply of it and recommend it to any of my friends. With many thanks.' Janet Larkin & May (the horse), Ashford, Kent.

Endorsement: 'My horse sustained an injury resulting in deep burns and grazes to both hind legs, with fetlocks and pasterns skinned - a real mess. Being an ex-equine veterinary nurse, I was able to give him the best 'hi-tech' treatment, but despite this the wounds became infected and too painful to be touched. I decided to try Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream and the effect was simply miraculous! Within seconds my horse felt the soothing action and allowed me to apply the cream, it was obvious that it gave him instant relief.
I continued to use Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream twice a day with no other treatment. The thick and encrusted scabs fell away leaving perfect pink, healthy skin and after ten days new hair growth started to come through. What's more, the wounds covered a large area but Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream was so amazingly economical to use. I might add that this particular horse has white legs, sensitive skin and is very prone to mud fever, so it was a particularly good test case for the product.' Maria Wellman, Dressage Rider, Trainer & Ex Equine Veterinary Nurse.

Endorsement: 'I have owned my mare for 18 years and from the age of 12 she has suffered with extreme mud fever and as a result has had to be stabled full time. If she was turned out her life was miserable, sufffering huge problems and often secondary infection resulting in expensive visits from the vet and anti-biotic injections. I literally tried everything to relieve her suffering.
A chance conversation with a young vet occurred and she recommended Barrier Animal Healthcare's 'Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream.' I began to use the product and quite frankly the results were miraculous. She has no mud fever and is able to be turned out all day and is a very happy 19-year-old horse. Your product keeps the mud off and her skin smoothe, with no scabs, no lameness and no vet bills. I seem to be constantly recommending your products and will use it on my mare's son, so that he never has to suffer with such a horrible condition. Please don't take it off the market! Diane Leslie & Mabel (the horse), Centerbury, Kent.
