Frog Shedding and Keratex Hoof Gel use
I started using Keratex Hoof Gel about a week and a half ago on my OTTB's shelly, thin soled hooves in an attempt to keep him from having any more abscesses with this wet, snowy winter.
I had been using Durasole but thought Keratex Hoof Gel might be a better option for winter since it has more "waterproofing" properties. I have been applying every 2 days to his walls/soles & frog as recommended on the bottle.
Now his entire Right frog is shedding off. Should I be worried about using Keratex... ? My horse is finally fully recovered from his first winter abscess in his Left front after 5 weeks off and I really don't want to start seeing any more hoof issues.
I may just be paranoid given all the hoof issues we had to deal with last winter & spring, but I would appreciate any insight or advice on Keratex/frog shedding if you feel like sharing. Thanks!
