Conventional hoof care products usually have an antibacterial effect, which disinfects sores such as digital dermatitis in the hoof area. This method has a limited effect, however, as after the cow has been put through a hoof bath, it returns to the harmful hoof environment where the bacterial level is very high.
The risk of re-infection is great in these situations. To achieve the full effect of disinfecting a sore, it must be kept clean afterwards, which is not possible in modern housing systems.
Stalosan Hoof was developed to form scabs and to neutralise tissue-decomposing waste products such as ammonia and hydrogen sulphide on the cow’s skin. Cows grazing on grass all year round usually have no problems with DD, for instance. Consequently, this indicates that the hoof environment in the housing system is a primary factor for developing of DD. This is why Stalosan Hoof was developed to protect sores and skin against the harmful hoof environment in the housing unit. This relieves the pressure on the cow’s skin and improves the conditions for sore healing.
