LUCAA+ Probiotic Horse Hoof Care improves hoof cleanliness and health, which reduces the risk of bacterial and fungal infections. The spray is enriched with beneficial ‘good’ probiotic bacteria, naturally sourced from plants. The helpful probiotics restore healthy, microbial balance, which helps to strengthen and protect the hooves. They inhibit harmful bacteria and reduce the risk of bacterial and fungal infections (thrush) from developing.
Horses’ hooves are made of a tough protein called keratin, but are vulnerable to injury because of constant contact with the ground. Proper hoof care is essential for the overall health and well-being of the horse.
Thrush is a fungal infection caused by bacteria penetrating the hooves. Left untreated, it can have serious consequences for the horse: the hoof can rot and become black, soft and foul-smelling, especially around the steel quarries. Vets and farriers can easily diagnose thrush from this specific unpleasant smell.
Many hoof care products contain harsh, chemical ingredients that can push harmful bacteria to develop resistance to standard treatments. This fuels the rising problem of antimicrobial resistance (AMR). LUCAA+ Hoof Care works differently and in a safe, natural and mechanical way. It does not contribute to AMR and can help reduce antibiotic requirements.
Clean and dry the hooves thoroughly. Shake before use. Spray LUCAA+ Probiotic Horse Hoof Care lightly onto the hooves. Repeat three times a week for best results. It is important to regularly trim the hooves and keep the radius grooves clean and ensure the horse has a dry shelter. Always consult a vet if in doubt or symptoms persist.
