Ice Therapy Made Easy
Hoof issues such as laminitis and navicular disease can make a healthy horse lame and may be fatal. Fortunately, veterinarians and owners have discovered the healing power of cold therapy to help reduce the pain and inflammation that’s often associated with these common horse hoof issues.
In severe laminitis cases, medical protocol may call for up to 72 hours of continuous icing of the affected foot. Before the Soft Ride Ice Spa, the industry standard for icing was a bucket or old IV bag, both of which were sloppy solutions to a slippery situation.
The Ice Spa offers an easy and convenient way to immerse a horse’s lower legs in an ice bath while still allowing him mobility which eliminates the “trapped” feeling and decreases stress for your horse. The ability to move around in his stall makes prolonged icing sessions easier for your horse and you.
When it comes to your horse’s health, always consult your local practitioner to ensure that your horse is getting the best care possible. And if that care includes icing in an ice bath - for either short or prolonged periods-, the Soft Ride Ice Spa is the solution.
