Artimud fills shallow gaps in hooves and provides long-lasting protection against damage. It contains naturally active agents that cleanse the area and support the formation of healthy tissue.
Its thick, putty consistency makes it easy to apply and helps it stay firmly in place so the protective agents can work for longer.
Artimud is ideal for protecting shallow white line crevices, frog clefts and external cracks. It is often used under stick-on shoes and pads to keep soles and frogs in healthy condition.
All of the ingredients in Artimud are natural and have been chosen either for their active properties or to enhance the consistency of the putty.
- Green French Clay - An antibacterial clay that gives the putty its unique consistency.
- Honey - Honey has antibacterial and antifungal properties and makes the putty sticky and pliable.
- Natural Minerals - Zinc Oxide - Powerful yet gentle active agents that cleanse and support natural sole and frog regeneration.
- Eucalyptus Essential Oils - A highly effective essential oils that cleanse and toughen weakened structures.
There is not tree oil in the formula because it can cause allergic reactions in some horses. Tea tree oil can also reduce the activity of the beneficial bacteria on the hoof.
Remove any debris from the area to be packed and dry thoroughly. Artimud can be smoothed, rolled, squashed, spread and moulded. Push the putty into the crack and smooth off. Talc or tissue can be applied to prevent sticking. Artimud is also ideal for packing on the foot and either side of the frog prior to application of impression material, pads and stick-on shoes.
