Instruction

PLEASE NOTE BEFORE APPLYING PRODUCT

  • Vettec products are best used between 65°- 85° F (18°- 29° C).
  • Areas of bleeding, abscesses or severe thrush should not be covered. Once healed, commence using products.
  • Use of disposable gloves is recommended.
  • Do not burn or “Hot Shoe” this product. 
  • Use only Vettec mix tips.
  • This procedure should be performed on a clean, flat work area.

CARTRIDGE PREPARATION

  1. To open, remove the tip of the cartridge (at designated groove) with nippers or knife. Ensure a clean straight cut along groove. 
  2. Slide the red oval finger ring over top of cartridge and seat at cartridge base.
  3. Use the red plunger to squeeze out a small amount of material to ensure both sides are dispensing evenly.
  4. Attach mixing tip by pressing and twisting clockwise.
  5. For additional applications, remove old tip, re-equalize the cartridge, and attach another mix tip. 

          

HOOF PREPARATION

  1. Trim, rasp, and level hoof as normal. Remove any weak or soft material, especially at the white line area.
  2. Dry hoof thoroughly using a heat gun or hair dryer. Do not overheat.

APPLICATION PROCEDURE

  1. Trim, rasp, balance, and clean the hoof around the damaged area.
  2. Using a hoof knife or Dremel™ tool, rout out the damaged areas.
  3. Create an undercut on the hoof wall.
  4. Protect the coronary band with hoof tape or damp gauze.
  5. Clean and thoroughly dry the prepped area per instructions. If wet conditions exist, horse should be stalled overnight with dry bedding.
  6. Dispense Super Fast directly into damaged area over-filling around the repair and onto sound hoof wall. Do not feather or "thin-out" the material around the edges. This will slow the set time and can lead to failure. Initial cure time is 30 seconds, weight bearing in 2-3 minutes. 
  7. Rasp to finish. If necessary, fill any voids or holes using Super Fast for a cosmetic finish.

          

IMPORTANT

  • Areas of wetness, bleeding, or infection should not be covered. Once healed, commence using the product.
  • Super Fast can be applied with the shoe on or off, but will bond to the shoe. A coating of oil or petroleum jelly to the top of shoe will prevent this from occurring. Take care not to get any on the area of the hoof being repaired.
  • Super Fast may not bond to hooves that have been heavily treated with products containing: oils, grease, pine tar, etc. In these instances, a thorough denatured alcohol scrub and drying should be performed to ensure adhesion.
  • For a large application where heat transfer to the hoof is a concern (above 150 °F), limit the initial layer to ¼ inch. After 3 minutes, apply to the desired level and shape as necessary.

APPLICATION PHOTOS

  • Super Fast allows the farrier or veterinarian more custom options for foal extensions than traditional glue on applications.
  • Super Fast gives the farrier and veterinarian the tools to level feet, build heels and support the hoof wall.
  • Super Fast allows the temporary protection and support for unshod horses.
  • When nailing is not an option, a package of Super Fast and Equi-Build provides support and weight distribution for foundered horses with thin, shelly hoofs.

                  

For professional use only. Keep out of reach of children.

Testimonials

ust wanted to say what a huge difference Vettec and Lynne Myers along with Joe Most have made to our foundered mare. She has been uncomfortable for many years! However, when Joe and Lynne came to do a workshop at my home, she became a new horse. They took one look at her and said "Yes, we can help her." She came out of the stall very slowly and painfully. Joe went to work and was very patient with her as she was too sore to stand for any length of time. With the use of Super Fast, Sole Guard and Equi-Pack CS, Joe was able to create 2 "new" hooves on her front end. The process was fascinating to watch! Joe took her toes down and with these 3 products he created what looks like a new sound hoof. With these great products from Vettec our mare is now much more comfortable and will continue to improve with the help of Joe and Lynne. When Joe finished with her, she was led back to the barn and guess what!!! She went back in a voluntary trot!! Yes she did!! And when the halter came off she trotted again and gave a nice little buck and a whinny!!! Have not seen that mare trot or anything for years. What an amazing transformation!! Our mare, Jewels, and I are grateful to Lynne Myers with her knowledge of these fantastic products as well as Joe Most and his knowledge and compassion for all horses. Lynne is not only full of info about these products, she gets right in there and shows you how to use them. Your horse does not have to be lame forever. Get in touch with Lynne and let her show you what products to use and how to apply them. Thanks again and look forward to seeing both Lynne and Joe the end of July to continue working with Jewels.

Timmy is a 20 something warmblood gelding. Around the first of May he was diagnosed with a mild case of laminitis. Farrier John Turner decided on a conservative shoeing protocol that included Vettec Equi-Pak CS pours in both front feet. Timmy did okay for about 4 weeks and had a relapse with x-rays showing founder in both front feet. John wanted to make Timmy more comfortable and contacted me about using Vettec SuperFast on the bottom of the hospital plate. It was a success. Timmy not only became immediately more comfortable and stopped shifting his weight, John called and told me he turned and moved so easily it amazed him. I had a chance to see Timmy last week and he is doing well. He continues to move and turn comfortably with the EquiPak and SuperFast application. I will have another update in a few weeks. Great job John and thanks for your faith in Vettec products! These are the types of stories we love to hear. : )

Hi, I wanted to let you know that my horse and I completed 55 miles on rocks with a Superfast custom shoe and a Sole-Guard pad, in Ft. Stanton, NM. We came in second place! This event was an AERC Endurance Ride on extremely hilly, rocky trails in the Capitan Mountains of New Mexico, a long way away and different from the terrain at our home on the Texas Gulf Coast. Thank you Vettec for your products, which allowed me to ride these trails on my barefoot horse! Here are a couple tips we thought we'd share for anyone considering this package for their horse: When applying Sole-Guard after Superfast, use contouring plastic wrap to smooth the Sole-Guard surface, Wear latex gloves to apply Superfast, as it is especially hard to get off skin! Thank you again Vettec!

A Huge thank you for Super Fast. It allowed me to fix a mare with ¼ inch to ½ inch deep White Line Disease all around both front feet plus crushed, under run heels. I was able to remove all the WLD plus correct the heels and angles in one session without even making her uncomfortable. Your product helped make her more comfortable that she’s been in a long while!

This is a horse (eventer) that came into one of my barns and had had glue on shoes for 2 years and was very uncomfortable on his feet and unable to show. I was immediately able to get steel shoes on with the help of Adhere and 4 nails progressing to steel shoes and nails only training and showing again. I knew it was a matter of time until the badly compromised hooves would require radical trimming of hoof wall as the integrity of the horn had been compromised by improper prep and application of the glue on shoes. Nine months later we reached that point, I removed all compromised horn and was left with no steel shoe options. I applied Super Fast to mimic a shoe and this horse hasn't missed a beat. Again, thank you and I will continue to use and recommend your products to other farriers.

FAQs

What is Super Fast?

Super Fast is a 30-second all-in-one hoof adhesive.
Click here for product introduction video.

Is the material safe to use?

Yes, there are no fumes or odors, and the material is nontoxic.

Does Super Fast give off heat?

Yes, but not as much as acrylics. The thicker the application of material, the more heat you generate. On large restorations, apply in layers.

How long does it take to set?

There are two set times. The first is at 2-3 minutes. At this point the material is weight bearing and the hoof can be put down. The final cure is 12-15 minutes

Can I nail into it?

Yes, because of the unique urethane properties, Super Fast will nail just like the natural hoof wall.

Will it load up my rasp?

No, the repair will rasp just like the hoof.

Can it be nipped?

Yes, it will trim just like the hoof and it won't be brittle like acrylics.

Does it have to be wrapped to cure?

No, Super Fast cures in the presence of air or wrapped.

Do I have to add reinforcing mesh tapes?

No, the material is strong enough without the need for reinforcing tapes.

What should I use to clean the hoof?

Normally, just nip, rasp, knife to good solid hoof structure and dry the hoof thoroughly using a heat gun or hair dryer.

NOTE: Only if hoof is oily, moisten a cloth with denatured alcohol, wipe the area being careful not to saturate, and then dry completely. Do not use acetone!

Can you medicate the material?

We do not medicate the material because we don't recommend covering up any site that may become infected. Let the site heal and then repair.

Can it be used to glue on foal extensions and glue-on shoes?

Absolutely, it works great! Use Super Fast. 


Can I “Hot Shoe” with Super Fast?

No, we don't recommend “hot shoeing” with Super Fast.

Do I have to use a mix tip?

Yes, this will give you a much stronger material over hand mixing.

Do I have to use your tips?

Yes, they are designed to mix a urethane where the others are designed to mix acrylics. You'll get the equivalent of a hand mix if other tips are used.
