First application on a horse with CPL

There is no way to predict exactly what you will find once you look under the hair. CPL can range from miserable to terminal; we strongly suggest that if the horse is on its feet you go ahead and begin treatment.

Wear gloves! The organisms in an infected leg can infect you, also.

If you are using a fresh bottle of Equinell™ Shampoo, remove the safety seal under the cap before you begin.

The first shampoo is the most difficult. You will wash a larger area, spend more time, and use more shampoo than at any other time. As the involved area shrinks, you will use less and less time and shampoo.

Before you begin: It is helpful, but not necessary, to clip the legs. Clipping will allow you to see the areas, they will dry more quickly, (not very important) and it will minimize waste. However, clipping is not a small undertaking. If the hair is matted or covered with drainage it will be nearly impossible, and the horse will not enjoy the process.

If you do not already own a clipper that is capable of the task, you may find that it is more economical to just use more Equinell™ Shampoo. If you do clip, do not try to clip close and risk injuring the skin.

For horses will hair matted on their legs that cannot be removed, or maggot infestations, stop here, and read When it Gets Serious: about CPL (click here).

Horses with CPL commonly resist having their legs wetted, because this seems to greatly increase the discomfort. If your horse is one of these, apply Equinell™ Shampoo on the dry leg. Use a spray bottle and cool water to work it into the skin. Use your fingertips to gently massage it into the skin folds and scars, and be very gentle on wounds, but try to remove any crusting. If the legs are very dirty you may need to wash more than once.

The tip of the bottle is designed to penetrate hair. Do not insert it into skin folds.

If the horse allows, rinse the legs carefully with cool water to remove dirt before applying Equinell™ Shampoo. You can use a mild shampoo to remove dirt, before using Equinell™ Shampoo, to maximize effect.

Work your way around the horse, carefully shampooing each leg. Cover the entire area under long hair, and a little beyond that area. In most cases it is sufficient to wash to about two inches above the knees and hocks. Allow ten minutes or more, before beginning to rinse.

By this time the worst of the discomfort should be gone, and the horse will allow you to rinse with a hose, once he discovers it doesn’t hurt. Use a firm spray (not a hard stream) to rinse, paying special attention to folds around the fetlocks and pasterns. If the horse has nodules be very gentle with them.

When you think you have rinsed well enough, rinse again.

Allow to dry completely. You can towel gently, but this is unnecessary. A hair dryer set on cool may be helpful. Leave the area open to air.

"Imari was gradually losing weight... She began to lie down to sleep, more and more. Finally she was lying down three times to sleep, on bad days. I mixed eight ounces of shampoo, which I applied dry.

Two months into treatment, I walked towards her with a halter and lead. Giggling wickedly, she thundered out of the barn."

"We were called by some friends who had found him and couldn't bear to leave him to die. His feet were in terrible condition...

We set to work, carefully swabbing the skin with hoof oil. Three days later we were delighted to find a much happier horse..."

"About the third week, I came in to find one of the horses cross tied, owner in tears. They had tried everything they knew to try, and he was still lame.

I had a couple of vials of Charlie's formula in the car. I painted his feet, and left a couple of vials. Four days later his feet were non tender, dry, and they seemed to give him no problem when he was under saddle."

I just sent some photos of Toby. His feathers are growing back wonderfully.

It blows my mind. He is so much more comfortable now. I only hope we can get a lifetime supply! I don't think I can live without it now.

Imari ... was nearing the end of her life. Her death was near, and inevitable, or so I thought.

After Marlene began treating Imari, it was as if she had been given a dip in the fountain of youth. She is sound and cantering for fun. This is an amazing product. Truly a gift to the horse world.

Amor Reto our 25 yr old Hanoverian's hooves were horrendous before Equinell hoof oil treatments. After the 1st treatment his hooves were visibly better. After four treatments inside and out the fungus has exponentially subsided, and his frog has shown regrowth and he's much more comfortable.

Einan came to Legacy Farm with an advanced case of thrush. He was noticeably uncomfortable. After four Equinell hoof oil treatments the smell has vanished there is no more exubale and he is much more willing to let us work on his hooves.
