Hooves Chipping/Splitting…

Dr. Dan, What might I have at my home that I could use to help keep my horse’s hooves from chipping and eventually splitting?  She was trimmed about 2 weeks ago and I noticed her front hoof was chipping.

Someone had told me olive oil, vasoline, or corn oil. How often would I apply…every day?   Any ideas on this will be appreciated.  Will be ordering my red-cal and just add oats in a few weeks.  Thanks for the help.


I would just get our hoof check supplement and the hoof check conditioner too to sort of get you over the hump so to speak.

 With the feeding program etc you may or may not need forever though. It just all depends on the horses individual system.

Thanks for asking Brenda!
