Overview

Why We Love This

Keratex Hoof Gel provides the ultimate all year protection for hooves. Most problems resulting in hooves cracking and losing shoes are caused by the effects of water and ammonia, so Keratex Hoof Gel protects the whole hoof capsule by providing a barrier against adverse environmental influences acting on the integrity of the hoof horn. It isn’t a damaging oil, but a powerful hydrophobic treatment that leaves the hoof glistening dry. While Keratex Hoof Hardener repairs damage to the hoof horn's molecular structure caused by water and ammonia, Keratex Hoof Gel quite simply stops the damage from happening in the first place. Used as a standard hoof treatment throughout the year, Keratex Hoof Gel will maintain the moisture content of the hoof at the same natural level.

Use every two days, except in dry conditions, when it can be applied every four days. Apply an extra coat before riding out in snow or in extremely wet, muddy conditions.

Favorite Features

• Keeps the hoof horn watertight in wet weather and stops cracking in dry weather.
• Protects hooves from damage caused by manure, urine, and excess absorption.
• Allows the hoof to breathe.
• Air can pass freely through Keratex Hoof Gel in either direction and excess moisture can be expelled from the hoof.

Keratex Hoof Gel is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 53.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Another great product I am a huge Keratex fan and use the hardener on my horses regularly. When I saw the gel I wanted to try it in addition to my current program - I am glad I did. Works hand in hand, keeps hooves healthy and horses happy and working!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic I'm just mad I didn't try/buy this product way long ago, years ago. If only I'd known how well it works! I'd been fighting smushy soft feet on my Arab forever. His heels stayed low, he was prone to thrush no matter what I did or what product I used. He was always on some hoof supplement or the other in his feed. Using this Kertex stuff, the gel and the other super expensive Kertex has reversed all the problems within a month. Now my boy has super strong, hard but reslient hoof horn, and the heels are nice and tough and growing out. Couldn't be happier with the results.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Hooves I have used Keratex Hoof Gel for many years and my horses hooves are in great condition!! Keratex protects the hooves in wet, muddy conditions and is great to use when horses are bathed frequently at shows. Keratex also keeps hooves from becoming dry and brittle and cracking. I always have this product on hand and use it on all my horses to prevent hoof issues.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good stuff I decided to try this because my horse's hooves were getting cracks (not a lot, but often enough that I was concerned that pieces of the wall could easily break off as a result), and after he had a case of white line disease, which although not symptomatic for him, can cause major problems in horses. What attracted me was the claim that it made a seal to keep hooves dry, but did not dry them out. Before I started using this, I used to have to use thrush remedy at least once every week or two because my horse's turnout was often muddy. We never had a bad case of thrush, but I think if I had not stayed on top of it, we could have. So I have been using Keratex in place of a regular hoof conditioner. I put it on his sole, frog, and wall but leave about one-half inch at the coronet, which is in the directions. I have been using Keratex around 6 -8 months. The big can has lasted me that long, and I just purchased a new one. My horse's hooves look great, and especially the soles, which used to be white and crumbly when I picked them out. Now they are much harder. They also claim that it will make hooves shine, but so far I haven't seen this-I keep waiting! And I do wish it were just a little thicker. I would not exactly call it a gel-it's pretty liquid. But I like that you can apply it with a brush. Very simple. Remember to shake well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Keratex Hoof Gel I am pleasantly surprised with the results of this product so far. There is a lot of mud and manure on our place and Dixie's hooves are always packed with mud and manure and very hard to clean. And we have been struggling with a bad crack on her right front hoof since March 2009. After applying Keratex to her hooves 3 or four times, I can tell a real difference in the ease of cleaning her hooves and her sole and hooves are looking a lot better. My hope is this will help get a handle on that crack!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, but smelly I am a huge fan of Keratex products. This one works great, but be sure you have a very well ventilated area where you can apply it to your horses' hooves. I wish Keratex included a brush for application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works well I've been using this product several times a week on clean dry hooves (over the nail holes) probably since last summer. I've seen an overall improvement in his feet. While this could be in combination with the hoof supplement he also gets, I do believe this product has been working and will keep using it. A bottle lasts a very long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best for Troubled Feet Good product a must use if your horse is turned out alot. Keeps horn moisture even, I have never seen anything like it. I will never put oil on my horses feet again.
Date published: 2010-12-14
Rated 5 out of 5 by from best investment in hoof protection I have used this product for over 3 years...would not go without it! Began using it for a TB/QH with thin soled, chronically bruising feet that always seemed to get thrushy or abscess. Discovered later that a seedy toe (small hole) on his toe was permissive to white line disease. Muddy paddocks were bad news to this fellow. Using this product 2-3 times a week has made an incredible difference in hoof quality & overall soundness. Good option for horses that have hooves that seem to take on too much moisture or bruise easily. Helps the barefooted horses too.
