Arnica and Its Benefits for Horse Hooves

As a horse owner, it's important to take care of your horse's hooves, as they are crucial to their overall health and well-being. One of the key ingredients in maintaining healthy hooves is Arnica, which has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat various ailments. In this article, we'll explore the benefits of Arnica for horse hooves and why we included it in our Silver Hoof EQ Therapy® by Draw It Out.

What is Arnica?

Arnica is a plant that belongs to the sunflower family and is native to Europe and Siberia. It's commonly used in traditional medicine for its anti-inflammatory and pain-relieving properties. Arnica contains several active compounds, including sesquiterpene lactones, flavonoids, and volatile oils, which are responsible for its therapeutic effects.

Arnica for Horse Hooves

Arnica has several benefits for horse hooves, including its ability to reduce inflammation and swelling, improve blood flow, and promote healing. Inflammation and swelling are common issues in horse hooves, and they can lead to pain, discomfort, and even lameness. Arnica helps reduce inflammation and swelling by inhibiting the production of inflammatory mediators, such as prostaglandins and leukotrienes.

Improved blood flow is also essential for healthy hooves, as it supplies the necessary nutrients and oxygen for growth and repair. Arnica contains compounds that dilate blood vessels, allowing for increased blood flow to the hooves. This increased blood flow helps promote healing and enhances hoof growth.
