Eileen asks this for her Horse with soft frogs…

Hi Dr. Dan,
Thanks for all your previous help with my horse and dog.  I have another question regarding my horse.  He has a history of laminitis, and has very soft frogs, and deep crevices at the back of his frogs up into his bulbs that stay soft and moist and result in thrush.  My farrier was here and suggested I use pine tar or turpentine, but I was looking at your Grape Balm Hoof Healer.  Would this product be applicable to his current feet issues?

Absolutely Eileen.

Grape Balm Hoof Healer has been a great "natural" alternative for many through the years.

Good to hear from you and Thanks for asking!

Dr. Dan

Grape Balm Hoof Healer 1 lb.

All natural alternative to chemical containing hoof products
Almost every other hoof product on the market contains petroleum, turpentine or acetone and some even formaldehyde. Wouldn’t an all-natural alternative make more sense – especially if it really works? How about if it effectively treats thrush in one or two treatments? What about if it re-moisturizes a hoof in one or two treatments and keeps them that way by using only once or twice a week? Well here it is – even packaged in an easy to use brush jar. Because this product is more like a gel in consistency it doesn’t leave tracks in the barn either. Also it won’t freeze and it doesn’t get thin in the summer. It does smell a little, but this is better than smelling acetone or formaldehyde and it is sure much better for your lungs! It is also great for nail hole dressing.
