Case Study: Multiple Sub-Sole Hoof Abscesses

Hoof with sole abscessesHorse with Abscess

A flat-soled thoroughbred with a history of abscesses presented profoundly lame with multiple sub-sole abscesses (see photo at left).

Banixx itself is not a drawing agent. But, once the abscesses had ruptured Banixx was able to kill the bacteria, which eliminated the infection and led to a pain-free, happy horse. By applying Banixx twice daily, the horse was clearly walking comfortably after 48 hours.  Five days later the horse was sound, was re-shod, and able to go back to work.

While veterinarians agree that abscesses are usually caused when bacteria gain entry into the sole, either by penetration of the sole by a sharp object or through hoof cracks, the white line, or hoof injuries, there is lack of agreement about other possible causes. Nevertheless, a horse with a hoof abscess is in pain, and should be treated by a veterinarian or farrier (horseshoer) that is knowledgeable in the matter to resolve the abscess (and the pain!) as quickly as possible.
