CANKER CASE STUDY from Netherlands
We are happy to share this Canker Case Study by Chantal Rietveld (Spijkenisse, Netherlands) who have been using Hoof Doctor from October 2021 to September 2022.
Hoof Doctor doesn't heal/cure canker or any other hoof diseases. It helps to maintain healthy hooves. Works best together with the proper diet and farrier's care. In all cases involving hoof conditions, diseases, or injuries, your veterinarian and your farrier are your best sources of information about your horse and your particular circumstances.
My horse with canker has been dealing with ups and downs for 3 years. The only things that have made a difference so far are formaldehyde and copper sulphate, but still with spring and autumn relapse.
I have tried anything for my sweetheart. It has cost blood, sweat, tears, headache, and sadnesses. He is the sweetest, kindest soul I've ever met. 18 years old, 13 years mine. I have made changes in food - a balancer with almost no sugars. I keep his stall very clean. The farrier comes every 3 weeks to cut the tissue away, and I use Hoof Doctor 2 times per week. And a total of 4 times per month I use formaldehyde and copper sulphate.
After the trim, I will start with Hoof Doctor and keep a journal about how my buddy is doing; I can't wait! 🍀 So excited to try this.
I ordered Hoof Doctor just a moment ago, and I'm so excited! New hope for me and my buddy!☺️

No complaints so far! We started to use Hoof Doctor on October 21st when the farrier gave him a trim. Farrier will be back on November 9th and check him then, but the canker looks hard right now. I am using Hoof Doctor twice a day. Once when he comes out of the paddock (making sure his feet are not too wet). I firmly clean the feet and apply Hoof Doctor. Then, put him in a nice clean stall. That's the morning routine.
Then in the evening, when we work him - the same ritual. But, now, when applying Hoof Doctor, he stands in Equine Fusion hoof boots (@EquineFusion), so the liquid stays all night and the hooves remain clean. Making sure no other germs or bacterial get in.

Trimmed 2 days ago.
January 4th is the next trim. Continuing to use Hoof Doctor.
Farrier wanted the link to your product, and I proudly gave it to him. He’s enthusiastic, and we are both happy with the results. And so is my horse! No more painful formaldehyde... And he's doing so much better.
I ordered my second can last week and will keep using it. I'm so happy.

And again, nice trim. The farrier was happy, and so am I.
I keep using it every day after work.

And still good! I have used Hoof Dressing every day where possible. Even when he’s out in the field. We’re riding almost every day, and he's happy as can be. And so am I. 🙏🙏
We’ve come so far and tried almost everything. I was a bit skeptical when I first started using Hoof Doctor, but well... The results speak for themselves.
Happy customer over here and telling everyone about it. 🤗💪
No more boots at night (since January 29, he’s worn no boots at all!) and no copper sulphate in between, it’s only Hoof Doctor now.

As you can see, he was so so so not well, and I didn't know what to do. I tried so many chemicals like formaldehyde and copper sulphate. Tried 24/7 Equine Fusion boots to keep him sound. But nothing really worked until I found Hoof Dressing. I was a bit skeptical in the beginning, but kept going nonetheless.
First with the boots at night, afraid that he would regress back. But since January, no boots at all and no chemicals, just Hoof Doctor every day. He's being ridden again! And in the field, he's just a happy horse, sound and pain-free. Farrier is happy, horse is happy, and I'm so so so thankful for this product. I'm telling everyone around me about it! Soon to order my 3rd can, and I will keep using it. 🙏 My savior - Hoof Doctor.
So here I am again, 10 weeks later and still rocking it! Amazingly, I fought so hard in the past and for so long.
And look at us now…
No chemicals, no copper sulphate, and no formaldehyde anymore. Only Hoof Doctor daily. And he’s living 24/7 outside. I couldn't be happier!
No other products given or used since he's doing so good on Hoof Doctor. 🙏😊🎉🇳🇱
