Hoof fungal infection (onychomicosis)

A fungal infection denotes hoof illness which causes the underlying tissue wall to detach.
There are various things that cause it with multiple predisposing factors playing a role: environmental, nutritional, genetic, and factors linked to hygiene, balance, and shoeing. Litter and land conditions can also be a factor: humid climate, very muddy grazing land and above all, litter that is dirty and very wet are often predisposing factors.
Cold climates seem to lessen these cases’ effect. Some nutritional vitamin or trace element deficiencies facilitate weakening of the nail and thus, are beneficial for the fungus. Furthermore, some subjects seem to have weaker nails that easily call apart, cannot hold iron, and thus, are more vulnerable to fungal infections. But the main causes are improper management of horse nails: little cleaning and care, excessive shoeing intervals and above all, improper balance and shoeing are predisposing factors for illnesses because they make it easy for fungi to enter.




Thanks to its many qualities, Hypermixvet®fits full-fledged into horse foot management in such a way to the extent that it can achieve microbial management of the substrate on which the horses stop on the box for a long time, whether it is made of shavings or rice chaffs. Alluvia, no matter how well collected or how well the box may be cleaned every day, mature and attack the corneal matrix of the hoof making long-term prevention necessary that does not harm the horse.

Thus, in this regards, Hypermixvet® becomes a necessary ally: the practical use and its accessible form makes it quick and practical to use, above all in humid weather.




APPLY, it via a brush with a light coating along the wall from crown up to the tip, passing through the soles, frog, and heel bulbs, it will help create a protective environment reducing the possibility of the fungus illness occurring with emphasis on the biocide action.
In case it has already occurred, then applying the product in a particular fashion on the fork and crown will be beneficial for absorbing the same and, thanks to very high foot capillarization, it will first be absorbed and subsequently be transferred to the affected surrounding areas.
Moreover, the oily formulation will guarantee, like its exudates and wounds, that the hooves are oxygenated and at the same time, maintain the ability of the same to absorb humidity with the aim of maintaining matrix elasticity and hydration.

  • Eliminate the fungus-infected part with appropriate tools.
  • Perforate through the entire wall with a conical-shaped tool.

  • Insert Hypermixvet® deep with a syringe through the holes formed.
  • Drench gauze with Hypermixvet®, insert it over the sole and bind it with Vetrap.
