Founder | Laminitis. Can Hoof Doctor help or not?


The founder is from within the horse. The most founder is from the diet as in high sugar and zinc in the blood, and some are from stress, either way, it damages the Laminie tissue that attaches hoof capsule to coffin bone and bone begins to rotate down. In this process, you have extreme damage to the toe area and abscessing developed frequently.

There is no product that will cure the founder that you would apply on the outside. That being said, horses can recover from the founder, but you can seriously help. We need to minimize the pain, and where Hoof Doctor comes in with this process is fighting the pathogens and drying up the opened abscessing areas and keeping bacteria and fungus under control. The Hoof Doctor is an effective aid to fight the infection (thrush), which can also cause pain, and when working on a foundered horse, heart bar shoes are used, which trap fungus around the frog which causes thrush.

Hoof Doctor will help with the damages and support the tissue to recover but, more importantly, help your new growth come in healthy. So it will help in the recovery process from the founder.
But will not cure.

Reminder: Proper farrier work is always the best for feet. Please don't ignore it. Hoof Doctor is an excellent product for horses owners to provide continuing care between farrier visits.
