Fiske’s Hoof & Hide Balm is also an effective liniment. It is very soothing for sprains or stiff muscles and joints in any animal – it’s very soothing, warms when it needs to, and cools when it must – with ingredients that relief pain and take out swelling – a great combination of ingredients that work together to heal and refresh. Fiske’s Hoof & Hide Balm also draws heat and soreness from the hoof after a workout and competition.

Professionals have trusted Fiske’s to help relieve their horses’ fatigued muscles, stiff joints, and pain from arthritis for more than a century. By helping reduce recovery time, the soothing blend of essential oils of Camphor, Eucalyptus, Menthol and Wintergreen makes Fiske’s a topical antiseptic and analgesic.

Fiske’s Hoof Oil is a wonderful daily conditioner in both dry or wet seasons. It helps prevent thrush as well as treats it if thrush has already developed. It conditions the hoof while oils and beeswax create a natural barrier keeping excess moisture out while allowing hoof to breathe – there is NO silicone in it to clog it up! In dry environments, Fiske’s hoof oil prevents cracks and keeps hoof moist, promotes circulation, flexibility and increases growth rate.

How to apply

Fiske’s is a one-step immediate-acting product. It eliminates the need for multiple products while reducing the application time and requirements. Both the liquid Fiske’s Hoof & Hide Balm and Fiske’s Skin & Wound Salve are for wound care, your choice comes down to which is easier to apply. Paint the wound with the brush application, apply the salve by gently massaging the product in to the area, or you can also pour Fiske’s Hoof & Hide Balm into a squeeze application bottle and address the wound by squeezing the balm directly into the wound.

Lightly wrap for protection, but leaving the wound exposed for oxygen to circulate is also recommended. Cleanse regularly with warm Epsom Salt and Water. The freshly harvested beeswax provides a breathable band-aid effect, allowing air to flow around the wound, and doubles as a natural topical antibiotic. Unlike traditional antiseptics and topical antibiotics it does not damage healthy tissue. Fiske’s tests ‘clean’ on competition animals as it contains no banned substances.

Treatment of Mud Fever

Another example of a horse struggling with the weather and mud in winter. Fiske’s helps clearing up this fungal condition and keeps legs healthy in less than ideal conditions, avoiding additional risks of infection and disease.

Treatment of wounds and cuts

This horse got caught up in barbed wire and had a large part of skin torn off. The wound healed without proud flesh in less than 4 months to a very small size and continued to shrink without infection or adverse reactions.
