Golden Hoof is the UK’s leading veterinary licensed zinc sulphate treatment for foot rot and foot scald in sheep.
The Golden Hoof solution quickly penetrates the sheep’s hoof, killing the bacteria that cause foot rot. Zinc sulphate is also a healing agent, promoting the growth of new healthy tissue, unlike formaldehyde preparations, which kill living tissues and cause hardening and cracking of the hoof.
Golden Hoof Plus contains zinc sulphate hexahydrate, an effective zinc preparation with improved zinc content, a surfactant to increase penetration into the hoof and an activating agent to make it easy to mix.
Safe and Easy to Use
- No unpleasant fumes
- Painless to the sheep
- Treat ewes and young lambs together
- The solution has a low toxicity and at 10% dilution is unpalatable to sheep
- Chemically stable for prolonged storage and at extreme temperatures, it does not cake
- Solutions of Golden Hoof are reusable as the antibacterial action is not materially affected by contamination with urine or faeces.
Use Golden Hoof zinc sulphate at a concentration of 10% in water – mix 1 kg of powder in 10 litres of water.
