Solution4 Feet Matrix: the new effective hoof packing material with strong disinfection properties and an ability to "knit" into existing healthy horn.
Solution4 Feet Matrix is a new product which has proven highly effective at dealing with a variety of horn problems. Solution4 Feet Matrix is a filamentous keratinous base impregnated with the 21st Century hoof disinfectant Solution4 Feet. Solution4 Feet Matrix is best used; under the branches of the shoe to pack the white line, in and around the frog, under sole or frog pads, and into any defects in the hoof following removal of infected horn.
Solution4 Feet Matrix is unique, not only in its composition and texture which allows a continual release of active ingredients into the hoof horn with every step the horse takes, but it conforms to the surrounding horn providing support and encouraging the normal function of the hoof. This is particularly important when large areas of horn have been resected either due to horn infection or acute or chronic founder (severe laminitis). The hoof is able to resume normal function thereby avoiding the hoof distortions which commonly occur following removal of large areas of hoof horn. The new horn is able to grow into a persistently clean environment.
Solution4 Feet Matrix retains its activity and supporting role to the hoof throughout a normal shoeing interval. Even when used under pads Solution4 Feet Matrix absorbs the "sweat" from the sole and frog and keeps the horn healthy enabling natural exfoliation of horn. The soles and frogs neither become hard and solid with the adverse effects of "locking" the hoof into an abnormal shape nor do they become "waterlogged" leaving a filthy mess beneath the pad. Solution4 Feet Matrix is oxygen permeable and contains no chemicals such as formaldehyde which damage hoof horn. Solution4 Feet Matrix allows the hoof to retain its function and malleability during the period of new horn growth.
