Compression bandages are used to help the horse’s lymphatic system function properly. In human applications, there are four compression classes ranging from CCL 1 (mild) to CCL 4 (very strong). The EquiCrown® bandages use a CCL 1 compression pressure, which is sufficient for horses’ sensitive legs, to help support lymphatic flow and blood circulation through the application of external pressure. They also promote the drainage of lymphatic fluid resulting in a thinner and healthier leg. Suggested use is for two hours (minimum) up to 24 hours, depending on the reasons for use.

Allergies are simply an imbalance of the immune system where your horse’s immune system perceives a threat from something harmless that he has come into regular contact with. Instead of eliminating microorganisms, the body suddenly starts attacking its own tissues, resulting in an overreaction to normal, everyday things such as grass, tree pollens, shavings, dust, molds, hay and straw, environmental pollutants, drugs, fly spray, or a new grooming product or shampoo.

To sustain optimal hoof health, the horse’s feet must be regularly trimmed and maintained. Without proper care, the feet can develop conditions such as too much toe or too much heel, and the horse can suffer discomfort or even infection, resulting in costly treatment. When this happens, it is essential to provide the support and maintenance necessary to return the hooves to a healthy state.

Most horse owners understand the importance of feeding a product designed specifically for horses, which does not contain medications designed for other species. But what most people fail to realize is that not all manufacturing processes are created equal, and not all suppliers take the same measures to ensure feed safety.

The horse’s environment and genetics play a significant role in the quality of hooves. Genes were inherited from the sire and dam at conception and in turn express specific traits, but cannot be changed. Environment is comprised of everything else that affects the horse, including nutrition, hoof care, management practices, health care, and more.
