They say knowledge is power and in November 2016 it was as if I had been given a new pair of eyes when looking at Oscar’s hooves, heels and frogs after a successful visit from an equine podiatrist to discuss the possibility of removing Oscar’s back shoes.
Since the educational visit, daily hoof care is no longer simply picking out the feet. I now inspect, sniff, clean, poke, prod, buff, brush and treat on a daily basis. Fascinated by Mother Nature and determined not to let anything get in the way of attempting to make this a comfortable and happy transition for Oscar!
This is exactly why I accepted the offer from Haynet to review Renasan, an effective first aid spray, suitable for use on all animals, birds and reptiles. Containing hypochlorous, a substance produced naturally in humans, animals and birds that our bodies use to fight infections and kill invading pathogens and 99.9999% effective. Renasan contains no alcohol, antibiotics, steroids or preservatives and is biodegradable and therefore environmentally friendly. Tick, tick, TICK!
Renasan is a first aid box essential and can be used on/for the following:
Cuts and wounds
Hard and soft surface sanitation
Thankfully I haven’t had to deal with any recent cuts or wounds…quickly touches wood, but I have made it part of my daily hoof care routine, supporting a healthy frog and our barefoot transition. For the last month I have sprayed directly onto a clean, upturned frog twice daily, it is kind enough to allow this yet helps to fight any nasties. For more serious scenarios, split heels recent shoe removal, early barefoot transitions, abscesses etc… You can decant Renasan into a suitable container and submerge the affected hoof for two minutes, again twice daily.
The bottle is a bright purple, easy to locate in busy tack room and the spray nozzle is excellent at applying the product to the right area, proving to be easy to use with no scent and available from sizes of 100ml with prices starting at £7.00.
