Read about how others are using Tubbease for effective hoof treatment.
A treatment for all hoof ailments
I have been using Shoof products for over 25 years and am delighted to see them bring Tubbease to the market!
I have used a number of them now on everything from foot abscesses and bruising to laminitis and hoof wall injuries. They are easily applied and reduce the cost of bandaging while maintaining a clean hoof. The boots come in a nice variety of sizes and can be used either to keep the foot dry or clean-soaking in whatever salts or solutions are needed for treatment.
Clients have responded well to them and they are very reasonably priced.I’ll continue to use them well into the future.

A simple, no frustration solution
Shoof are well-known for their innovations in animal health supplies. I was delighted to see they have come up with a great way to solve the age-old problem of tubbing a horse’s hoof. This job can be one of the most frustrating of all jobs for a horse owner. The Tubbease hoof sock is easy to apply and stays in place either with or without traditional dressings underneath. It’s simple and easy to use and not only saves time and frustration but is economical as well.

Making hoof treatment easy
My 5-year-old Quarter Horse gelding, Obama, developed a hoof abscess. He hates having his hoof in a bucket of water – it requires a minimum of two, preferably three people, to persuade him: One to bribe him with feed, one to scratch him in his favourite places and one holding the bucket where he can’t see it.
Luckily, I discovered a little while ago that the store where I work stocked these smart Tubbease Hoof Socks. So, I bought one home with me – it was worth a try. And they are brilliant! Now I can do Obama’s hoof treatment alone – I simply put the sock on the hoof and pour the soapy water in. It’s so easy!

A kinder hoof treatment solution
For a few years now I have been using Tubbease – they are a great way to keep the hoof clean and give it time to repair. I run an agistment farm for Thoroughbred race horses and I am often working by myself so I find Tubbease is easy to use and it doesn’t rub or irritate the horse. I can highly recommend Tubbease to people who need an easy way to poultice or treat their horses’ feet.

A happy pony again
We’ve had a very wet season and my mini’s soles softened from constantly standing in wet sand. He also developed bruised soles from every little stone.
I gave him a set of Tubbease and EVA Sole Inserts so he could be outside again with his girlfriend and his hooves would stay dry. Tubbease stayed on on perfectly! Also walking and running with his new ‘hoof socks’ was no problem at all. For me, this was a perfect temporary solution until his hooves are better. He is a happy little pony again!

Tubbease and Clio the Donkey
25yr old Clio is currently at Sofie Senden’s VZW Lamana Animal Sanctuary and undergoing extensive hoofcare treatment from Tine Dewulf of Hoefonderhoud Tine Dewulf. Clio’s hooves were in really bad shape from previous neglect and laminitis. So I supplied a Tubbease hoof sock for her treatment. Due to Sofie’s care, Clio has come a long way in a week. The Tubbease hoof sock helps her tremendously. Clio is pretty scared of new things but Tubbease offers a simple and stress-free solution for her. The hoof sock also keeps her hooves clean, dry and free of thrush and infection. It’s a fantastic thing!

Happy to have my Tubbease!
I used to soak my horses’ feet in buckets for deep cleaning. You can guess with shifting weight my horse would tip over the bucket. Now with Tubbease it is so much easier…. and I’m now able to soak two feet at the same time! I must regularly clean and treat his hooves thoroughly as he is very susceptible to thrush and any other fungus. Part of that is due to constantly standing in his wet spot. Even in the stall using the Tubbease is quite a solution!
