Several horse owners complain to me about non-healing wounds on the point of the hock. These common wounds are created by repeated trauma when horses stand after laying down. In the past, I have found these wounds very difficult to treat. I have tried a variety of medications and bandages with little success. I began recommending Hock Shield boots to my clients and was blown away by the results. Horses that had chronic, bleeding sores healed completely within a couple weeks. Owners found them easy to use and durable. I highly recommend Hock Shield for any horse dealing with this issue.
