As a general rule deep & narrow = Hoof Stuff, shallow & wide = Artimud. As a test see if damp cotton wool will pack into the crack, if it will Hoof-Stuff will probably work best, if not opt for Artimud.Ensure the crevice/hole is clean from all reachable debris, if there is no exposed flesh flush with sole cleanse. Break through the wax seal on the Hoof-Stuff and draw out some fibres with a clean hoof pick. Use the hoof pick to stuff the pack into the crack, not pushing hard if there are signs of sensitivity or it is extremely deep. For deep central sulcus it can be helpful to leave a ‘tail’ out the back of the hoof to aid easy removal.Remove the pack with a hoof pick after 24 hrs, if it is clean replace it with a new pack and leave for a longer period next time i.e 48 hours. If the pack from within the crevis shows signs of dirt of debris replace the Hoof-Stuff more often until all debris within the crack has been drawn out then follow that standard treatment protocol.The interval between replacements depends very much on the specific condition and environment. If the pack is staying well in the crevice then replacement is not necessary until it discolours. Generally people find they have to replace it every few days to weekly. Once the crevice has had its initial treatment it will likely not be necessary to flush it out again with sole cleanse provided if the pack is staying in place.
Hoof-Stuff is supplied in a 190ml screw-top jar.
