Artimud fills shallow gaps in hooves and provides long-lasting protection against damage. It contains naturally active agents that cleanse the area and support the formation of healthy tissue.
Its thick, putty consistency makes it easy to apply and helps it stay firmly in place so the protective agents can work for longer.
Artimud is ideal for protecting shallow white line crevices, frog clefts and external cracks. It is often used under stick-on shoes and pads to keep soles and frogs in healthy condition.
All of the ingredients in Artimud are natural and have been chosen either for their anti-fungal and antibacterial properties or to enhance the consistency of the putty.

Should I flush the crevice before packing it?
Yes, on first application. Allow it to dry well before Artimud application as this will help the product adhere better.
Should I flush the crevice everytime I replace the packing?
Once the crevice has been flushed it will not be necessary to clean it out again if it does not get dirt in it (i.e. if the Artimud is staying in place). Artimud will stick better in a dry crevice.
What should I flush it out with?
Flush with a gentle solution e.g. salt water, dilute vinegar etc.
Avoid flushing with iodine, peroxide, etc. as these may damage otherwise healthy tissues.
Do you have to remove Artimud and clean crevices daily or does product stay in for certain time?
The length of time the Artimud stays in for varies dependent on specific conditions. Generally if the Artimud is staying well in the crevice then replacement is not necessary. The usual practice is to replace it every few days.
Can I use Artimud in an abscess cavity?

Can I use Artimud under shoes or pads?
Yes, it ensures that feet stay in good condition when covered.
