Great product, not easy to get out of the tin but worthwhile and useful to have in the tack room.

This did exactly what I wanted - sealed the cavity in my pony's hoof following an abscess. Don't know what I would have done without it.

There's no getting away from it, the putty is difficult to get out of the tin. Use a screw driver, knife etc. You have to warm it in your hands (I pop it just inside my bra while I'm picking out feet) until it's soft enough to mould into the shape you need to plug the hole. It sticks better if the hole is clean and dry. It then hardens again and stays in really well. I've had some in place for over a week now in the white line so it is good value for money.

Was advised to use this by my farrier to plug a healed cavity in horses sole due to abscess draining tract. Excellent product which ensures the hole stays clean whilst growing down.

Hole at the top of the hoof.


Hi, my horse has a hole in his hoof up by the coronet, where he had an operation. The site has now dried and hardened and he no longer has to have it dressed, but it is quite wide and shallow. At the moment the fields are dry, but as this will take a year to grow out, I wonder if this would be suitable and help?

Hi Patricia,

Yes this would definitely be worth trying. It is formulated to seal and stabilise the horse's feet and prevent damage from dirt, stones or mud. It has also been rated 5 stars by our customers.

Hope this helps.

Is it safe for dogs


My pointer dog has two badly cracked nails, and I want something to keep out mud and small stones, keratex hoof putty sounds as if it will be perfect. Is it safe for dogs as he will probably lick his paws.

  • VioVet Staff

Hi Gaye,

Thank you for your query.

Keratex is only intended for horses so it would not be advisable to apply it to your dog's nails. There are numerous paw balms and butters which can be applied to the site, as well as Biotin capsules which greatly improve nail condition and regrowth. Keratex has not been tested for this particular purpose and may be dangerous if ingested by your dog. If you are concerned or need advicee on which products to use it may be best to speak with your vet or a local groomer who can advise appropriately.

I hope this helps.

Poor hoof condition


Hi, I have a tb he has slow hoof growth n weak walls how can improve hes feet n promote growth he is having regular farrier attention .

  • VioVet Staff

The most important thing is to provide a good food supplement to help provide optimum nutrition for the hooves. I would suggest Gold Lable Biotin Plus to be given every day for at least 6 months.This should help the hooves to grow more strongly in future. Applying a hoof oil will help a bit too. The hoof putty is for treating specific damage and is not likely to be of benefit to you.
