Frequently Asked Questions
How do I properly treat my horse’s hoof?
Spurr’s Big Fix comes in a simple, easy to use spray bottle with an adjustable spray tip. For the hoof, simply pick, clean and brush all foreign matter from the hoof. Apply a liberal coating of Spurr’s to both the sole as well as the entire outside of the hoof.
How frequently should I apply Spurr’s Big Fix?
It depends upon the severity or condition of the hoof. For severe Thrush and White Line we’d recommend using Spurr’s on an every-other-day basis until the condition clears. Then use once a week for preventative maintenance.
Will Spurr’s help brittle hooves?
Yes, Spurr’s will penetrate the hoof wall from every area where it’s applied, therefore killing the fungus’s that contribute to brittle hooves as well as many other hoof conditions.
How fast can I expect to see results on thrush?
One can expect to see immediate results on Thrush from the first application. Using Spurr’s on an every other day interval you should expect to see no evidence of thrush within a couple of weeks. A preventative maintenance program of once a week should be adequate in keeping your horse’s hooves sound.
Why should my farrier use Spurr’s before he actually starts working on our horses?
Farriers are some of Spurr’s greatest users! The application of Spurr’s 10-15 minutes prior to the farrier working the horse’s hoof, will create a much more pliable hoof. Therefore making the farrier’s job easier in trimming, paring out the sole and rasping the hoof. He will also see increased life in his tools and not having to replace or sharpen his tools as often.
