It is particularly useful when your horse is recovering from an abscess, puncture or hoof separation.
It can be used in the following ways:
To plug a small, uninfected puncture hole after thoroughly disinfecting the area, allowing you to turn out straight away when a poultice is not required
To plug a puncture or hole left behind after an abscess has been cleared and drained, after thoroughly disinfecting the area, when a poultice is required, allowing you to turn out with confidence after the poultice has been removed
Farriers often use it an additional shock absorber and comforter when used between the lily pad and frog in ponies with spring grass related problems.
