TuffRock Poultice is a topical preparation and brace. It is the first 100% all natural product in the world manufactured from molecular reinforced hydrated alumino-silicates. TuffRock Poultice is generally regarded as safe (GRAS) and aids in the recovery from impact injuries, swelling, cuts and abrasions. Tuffrock Poultice helps reduce the inflammation effects through cooling injury sites extremely quickly, instantly removing heat from damaged areas using the same principals as a plate heat exchanger to reach under the skin and provide relief to areas that need it most. Horses readily accept poultice application - just apply a small amount to damaged area, step back and let the horse feel the soothing effect, then apply 5-7mm thick to injured area. Please ensure cover extends to at least 2 inches outside effected area.
Tuffrock Poultice may be used without bandaging, or otherwise apply liberally, cover with damp paper, plastic and lightly wrap. Pressure bandaging is not required. It can be used to indicate rate of injury recovery or identify problem areas simply by observing wet and dry patterns over 45 minute period. Poultice remains active (damp) longer on injured areas, non-injured areas dry normally.
