Is your horse or pony prone to bacterial infections such as mud fever or cracked heels during winter? Give bacteria the boot with the Equi-Med Ag Antibacterial Stable Boots.
Like no other product on the market, the patented Equi-Med Antibacterial Stable Boots have been designed with an advanced dual action combining activated carbon and silver in the fabric.
The activated carbon draws bacteria out of the infected area into the fabric whilst the silver works to eliminate bacteria, allowing the wounds to heal faster. The boots are ideal to use on knocks, scrapes or cuts to help reduce the risk of infection and any post exercise swelling.
Using the Equi-Med boots is hassle free and eliminates the need for additional topical products and possibly the need for other medication, saving you money. They can be used as part of your everyday stable management routine for horses that are prone to bacterial infections to help maintain a healthy skin.
Designed for indoor use, the boots can simply be applied to clean legs when the horse is stabled. This should allow for regular turnout during the day as normal. The boots have a comfortable and breathable design which allows the fabric to get as close as possible to the skin without restricting movement.
The boots can be machine washed as per instructions, making them a very cost effective way of keeping bacterial infections at bay. Any grease or dirt can simply be brushed away with a body brush for day to day cleaning.
The Equi-Med Ag Stable Boots start from £104.95 for a pair and are available in sizes 1-4 to fit all horses.
In a recent study by Equi-Med Ag and veterinary consultant Cedric Chan, antimicrobial testing showed 99% of cases that were randomly chosen from around the UK were caused by Staphylococcus Aureus and the bacterial infection was successfully treated using the Equi-Med Ag range. In severe cases always consult your veterinary surgeon.
