Keratex Hoofcare

The central concept to all of Keratex Hoofcare’s products is that they act directly on the keratin of the horn to improve the hoof – either to make it stronger or more waterproof or moister as the case may be.

Equine Natural Bedding

Animal Health Direct supply natural animal bedding for horses which provides many unique benefits. Made from 100% natural New Zealand pine, it’s easy to use and provides many advantages to wood shavings or sawdust.

Due to the high absorption rate, urine clumping and manure is easily collected, and old bedding can be used as compost or fertiliser.
