WHAT IS CANNON CRUD?

Oh, that stuck on crud on your horse's cannon bones. There stands your beautiful horse, groomed to stunning perfection, but like a beacon of defeat, there lurks cannon crud, the kind that just won't come off no matter how much scrubbing and picking you do. At Equiderma, we feel your pain, but take heart, there's an easy solution that thousands of horse owners have come to rely on, Equiderma Skin Lotion. It’s so easy and foolproof you’ll be amazed.

There are many misconceptions about what cannon crud actually is, so let's start with what it isn't. It's not a fungus and it isn't as simple as urine splashing up on the back legs of your male horse. You may have heard the misnomer, "stud crud," but mares get it too. The official name of this crud is cannon keratosis.

Cannon keratosis is caused by an excess production of keratin, the main structural constituents of hair, feathers, hoofs, claws, and horns. The problematic condition arises when excess keratin exudes from the skin and dries there. You might see the same condition on your horse's face, ears and above the hocks. Getting it off can be as tough as trying to get off dried glue, that is, until you try Equiderma Skin Lotion. Regardless of location Equiderma will have your horse's skin looking great almost effortlessly.
 

HOW IS CANNON CRUD TREATED?

Treatment couldn’t be more simple –

1. Just apply Equiderma Skin Lotion to your horse’s cannon bones, leave on and let it work its magic.

1. What if there is still crud after using Equiderma Skin Lotion?

Occasionally the build up will be more advanced and will need an extra treatment. Follow the same treatment as you did the first day. Just re-apply another generous coating of Equiderma Skin Lotion and leave on. Allow to sit on the skin overnight and wash legs the following day.

2. Can I use Equiderma Skin Lotion on my horse's face?

Yes, we like to use a small round tack sponge to control where the skin lotion goes. Apply a small amount in a circular fashion to the affected areas. Follow the same protocol as you would for the legs. Leave it on, wipe and rinse off the following day.
