Hoof-Alive produces the best results imaginable with just one application per week! Hoof-Alive goes entirely through and into the hoof wall, or any other natural, live tissue. Our premium ingredients are wholly compatible with the live and sensitive blood and connective tissue beneath the wall's surface. By penetrating and becoming part of the hoof wall, Hoof-Alive makes the hoof virtually "weather proof" and impervious to the elements thus keeping the valuable Blood Moisture inside the hoof. This creates a stronger hoof and promotes healthy hoof growth. Plus, No other hoof dressing is used all over the horse, not just on the hoof: Saddle sores, rope burns, abrasions, cinch sores, cuts just to name a few. Long story short, you need and can use Hoof-Alive for something everyday.
