S-Pak is an excellent primer for hoof repair kits. S-Pak solution actually absorbs into the hoof and therefore, allows the hoof repair kit to have a surface to adhere to.
Dr. Walter Kreeger, a farrier, educator and researcher, found in his study on treatments for White Line Disease it was essential to coat the hooves with Hawthorne’s S-Pak solution in order to seal any old and new nail holes and to aid in securing the clinches. The procedure was repeated in 6 weeks and improvement was noted in the infected areas. At the end of the 12 week study, all horses had varying degrees of hoof lesion reduction that ranged from 61.43% to 86.51%.
