WOOF WEAR MEDICAL HOOF BOOT
A unique close fitting hoof boot designed to keep wounds poultices and dressings clean. This durable boot is suitable for stable and turnout use enabling your horse to enjoy some freedom instead of being kept in his stable. Featuring a grooved sole for extra grip and a Kevlar® interior for durability it also has an asymmetric zip to give the boot a really close fit (and prevent it opening) stopping bedding and other debris from getting inside. Available in 10 different sizes the boot is designed for use with or without a shoe. It can assist in a number of ailments to the foot such as abscesses punctured sole or bruised sole.
To get the best out of your Medical Hoof Boot:
Do not use the Medical Hoof Boot (MHB) in place of an overreach boot to prevent shoe loss. The MHB is not designed for this application and will not protect against overreaching. We always recommend using a deep overreach boot over the MHB to protect both the horse and the MHB from damage.
2.Measure Measure Measure...
The MHB is designed to be a snug fit so it doesn't fall off. If you do not measure accurately or buy a size too big it can result in damage to the MHB due to the boot being trodden on by the other foot.
i) Measure width carefully before bandaging with or without shoe
ii) Choose size per guide (don't go to next size up)
iii) No need to add extra for dressings
Use the size guide to ensure you have the closest fit for your horse or pony. Note If your horse has specialist or remedial shoes or large shoes such as Eggbars or Heartbars you may need to go up a size to accommodate these. We recommend working with your farrier to ensure you get the most applicable size for your horse.
If it is your intention to use on both front or hind feet and your horse is particularly ‘active’ or a bit close in his action the risk of standing on the boot with the opposite foot is higher due to the decreased distance between the two feet. In this case you can use an overreach boot over the top of the Medical Hoof Boot to protect it.
