Barrier 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.
Barrier Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream is anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.
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.
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. Barrier 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.
Never be tempted to pick the scabs off - it is intensely painful to the animal and can cause further infection to develop. Barrier 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.

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 Barrier Anti-bacterial Skin Spray
to soothe the whole area before applying Barrier Heel to Hoof Soothing Cream. Heel to Hoof acts as an excellent barrier against wet, mud and grit.
