Question:

I  have a horse in my care whose frog has been over thinned that resulted in an abscess.  The abscess is now dry and trying to heal.  Do you have a  product I can apply to his sole to offer protection until his frog can heal?

Answer:

Thanks for the question.  In your case the best option would be the use of Sole-Guard, as long as the frog is not moist or bleeding.  If it has healed and just not fully grown back you'll be fine.  Please see our videos, online or in DVD, for full application directions.  Please pay special attention to making sure the sole, frog and commissures are clean and DRY, dry being very important.  After application I would not remove the plastic film for about 30-45 minutes and do not turn the horse out for about one hour.
