Abscesses are a common concern for horse owners. When the weather goes from wet to dry and dry to wet, the hoof shell repeatedly expands and contracts, allowing bacteria to enter the hoof and cause an abscess. Applying a poultice helps to draw out the infection, and using a poultice boot can help to keep the poultice in the correct position and prevent further infection. Trusted brands like Busse, Shires and Woof Wear will reassure you that your horse's hoof will stay protected. You'll find everything you need to create your poultice in our First Aid Collection.
