Helping Healthy Hooves
With the competition season starting to get going again, horse owners are keen to ensure their equines are ready to step into the ring and put the hard work and training of the last few months into practice. However, regardless of the fact we are advancing towards summer, stabling at any time of year can pose challenges including saturation and weakening of the horse’s hooves in wet and dirty bedding.
The proverb “no foot, no horse” is still undisputed in the equine world. Neglected hooves can lead to discomfort, pain, disfigurement and lameness. Wet bedding not only can cause saturation of the foot but also leads to increased levels of ammonia in the stable which can damage the horn and weaken the outer layer of the horse’s hoof.
Nedz bedding provides the perfect range of products for horse owners who value healthy hooves. Nedz is the ultimate bedding solution for the wetter horse, and can help support the management of thrush and other fungal infections. In addition, a state of the art dust extraction process makes the range ideal for equines suffering from respiratory problems or simply for owners who will be travelling to shows and may have their equines stabled before and/or after competitions.
Natural Nedz, formulated from a unique blend of Manuka Oil, Aloe Vera, Silver and Cade Oil, offers an organic addition to all Nedz bedding. Natural Nedz provides anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic properties. The inclusion of silver helps to limit moulds and fungi developing in the bedding and stable environment, while also assisting in reducing the risk of harmful viruses, bacteria and other pathogens affecting your horse.
