Frequently asked questions - Equi-PakICS
Equi-Pak|CS can be used on most cases of thrush and at the white line where you have stretching and bacteria present.
Equi-Pak|CS takes a bit longer to set, 45-60 seconds. As always, temperature plays a part in set times. The material will set faster in hotter climates and take longer when it is cold. Please refer to the application directions for hot and cold weather suggestions.
Do not cover up thrush cases where you have any bleeding or there is the presence of white necrotic tissue.
Sole and frog prep should be the same as usual. Trim and conservatively pare out the sole. Remove any thrush and bacteria areas with hoof knife and conservatively trim the frog to remove any thrush. For working horses, the use of Vettec Mesh with the shoe is recommended.
