Intracare Hoof-fitproducts

Intra Hoof-fit 

Initially in the case of hoof complaints, we often only see the affliction of the affected animal, but in reality, the damage runs much deeper. Hoof problems can, for instance, lead to a reduction in the milk yield and can have a negative impact on fertility (longer periods between calves).

Hoof afflictions in cattle and sheep are usually the result of a variety of factors:
-     Accommodation
-     Feed
-     Hygiene
-     Production level
-     Breeding
-     Breed

In order to help livestock breeders maintain the hooves of their cattle and sheep in optimum condition, Intracare developed Intra Hoof-fit Gel, Intra Hoof-fit Liquid and Intra Hoof-fit Bath. These products were developed in close collaboration with dairy farmers, veterinary surgeons, farriers and cattle specialists and have been tested extensively in the field.

1. Intra Hoof-fit Gel is extremely suitable for the individual treatment of hoof problems.
2. Intra Hoof-fit Liquid has been specially developed for treating 
groups of animals. This treatment is preferably administered using a low-pressure spray unit.
3. Intra Hoof-fit Bath has been specially developed for preventive 
 treatment. This will have the best effect when used in the specially developed Intra Bath.

 Intra Hoof-fit Gel

This high concentration gel is extremely suitable for the treatment of individual animals. The gel treats many hoof infections and its other ingredients, such as Aloe Vera for example, ensure that the hoof is quickly restored to its optimum condition. The gel is well-known for its strong adhesive ability. As a result of this, it continues to exert its healing effect on the hoof for days.

The product contains:

  • Aloe Vera plant extract
  • Organic chelated minerals (copper and zinc)
  • Alcohol
  • Nourishing and protective substances;
  • Special adhesives;
  • Stabilising and emulsifying agents.

 Application

Intra Hoof-fit Gel is primarily suitable for the individual treatment of cows (and sheep) with hoof problems. When treating with Intra Hoof-fit Gel, apply according to the following method:

1. Trim the hooves 2 to 3 times per year. Preferably, you should engage the services of a professional farrier to trim all of the animals.
   
2. Clean the hoof thoroughly. Make sure that all manure has been removed from the hoof, including from the interdigital cleft, then dry the hoof.
   
3. Smear the afflicted hoof and the interdigital cleft with Intra Hoof-fit Gel using the brush supplied.
   
4. Thanks to its unique adhesive properties, Intra Hoof-fit Gel remains effective for up to 4 to 5 days. If necessary, repeat treatment after this period.
   
5. In the case of very severe problems, we recommend that you tape the hoof. After a maximum of 4 days, remove the tape and repeat treatment with Intra Hoof-fit Gel (this time without taping the hoof afterwards).

2. Spray the hooves clean with water, remembering to clean the interdigital cleft.
   
3. Use a low-pressure spray unit to spray the Intra Hoof-fit Liquid onto the rear of the hooves and into the interdigital space. Repeat this treatment on a weekly basis. 
   
4. Always begin with a 50% solution. For prevention purposes and/or in the event of slight hoof problems, reduce the dosage if necessary to a 20% solution.

 Intra Hoof-fit Tape

In the event of serious problems, it is recommended that you use Intra Hoof-fit Tape. The tape protects the hoof from external factors following treatment. Since cows usually stand on moist ground with their feet, it is recommended that you protect the hoof following treatment of inflammation. The Intra Hoof-fit Tape protects the hoof from these influences.

 Application
Following treatment of the hoof with Intra Hoof-fit Gel, tape up the hoof with Intra Hoof-fit Tape. Remove the tape after a maximum of 4 days.
