Bug Buster - Hoof Disinfectant

Bug Buster - Hoof Disinfectant


'No spill' bottle - dripper top for easy mess free application.  

An antimicrobial preparation for the treatment of all infections of the non-living hoof capsules of horses.

Hoof capsule infections are often described as “Thrush”, “White Line disease” or “Seedy Toe” but are usually caused by a combination of common groups of anaerobic bacteria that invade existing faults in the hoof material.  Eliminate these faults with Bug Buster - tested and recommended by farriers and hoof trimmers.

These faults are frequently difficult to eliminate without Bug Buster as the non-living material has no immune response.

The long term answer to these faults once the infection is eliminated is to maintain good hoof care and a suitable environment.  Cracks and separations should be eliminated by regular correct trimming and sound nutrition.

In some cases, a change of diet from high sugar, toxic pastures to a grass hay based diet will also stop the infections from recurring when damage to the laminae of the hoof wall is the cause.

After cleaning the affected area thoroughly, Bug Buster can be applied once per week as required.
