Hoof Med-X Soak
For Abscesses, Sprains, Strains & Bruises – 100% Dead Sea Magnesium Chloride
Hoof Med-X Soak is 100% Magnesium Chloride, extracted straight from the Dead Sea by the natural evaporation of sea water and a simple refinement process. Magnesium, a mineral crucial to the body’s functioning, provides a range of benefits for the entire body.
Use Hoof Med-X Soak as high performance hoof soak to encourage the drainage of abscesses while providing relief from infection and bruises. Hoof Med-X Soak can also be used as a body soak to relax sore muscles and joints to help alleviate chronic or acute pain.
Directions for Use:
As a Hoof Soak: Thoroughly clean the hoof prior to soaking. Using a large rubber container, or soaking boot, add 1-2 cups of Hoof Med-X Soak per gallon of water and fill with enough warm water to completely cover the top of the coronary band. Soak for 20-30 minutes up to 3 times a day and continue for 3 days after the pain has resolved. Discard liquid after soaking. Wrapping the hoof after soaking will help keep the hoof clean and protected from dirt and debris to avoid reinfection. Always consult your veterinarian for proper diagnosis and treatment plans.
As a Body Soak: Dissolve 2 cups of Hoof Med-X Soak into a gallon bucket of warm water. Sponge on entire body concentrating on the neck, back and/or areas of strain or soreness. Wait 20 minutes and rinse thoroughly with warm water. The temperature of the water should be warm, but not hot as hot water causes the skin to eliminate rather than to absorb.
*Please Note: After application you may notice a slight salt-like mineral residue is left when it dries. This is normal, especially in dry climates or heated indoor areas, and also varies with how much you are applying at one time. After 20 minutes, the majority of the magnesium ions have been absorbed and you may rinse off the mineral residue. Wiping the skin off with a damp washcloth is also an acceptable method.
