The Animalintex® Poultice Pad from 3M® is a mess-free method of treating wounds, abscesses, inflammation, skin disorders and hoof conditions. It works hot, cold or as an antiseptic dry dressing and can be cut easily to size. Moistened with very warm water, it treats abscesses, boils, infected and dirty wounds, cracked heels, thorns, laminitis, seedy toe and corns. Moistened with cold water, it relieves soreness and stiffness from strains, sprains, sore shins, splints, bruises and capped hocks or elbows. Used dry, it’s a dressing for open wounds and for applying a pressure bandage.
