Zinc Sulphate vs Copper Sulphate vs Formaldehyde?
- Zinc Sulphate (Premier FootCare or Hoof 1-2-3)—we rely on it in a Premier SureFoot™ Foot Bath for mass treating and preventing footrot and/or foot scald. But it takes longer exposure time (10 minutes) to “work” than other options.
- Copper Sulphate—effective and quick. Corrodes metal gates (and even the nails and screws in wooden gates). Thus we use it only for topical treatments like FootCure™.
- Formaldehyde—kills bacteria rapidly. Can make hooves brittle. Poses serious health risks to human and animal skin (particularly eye tissue).
How to Use
- Warning: Eye irritant. In case of eye contact flush with water for 15 minutes. If irritation persists call a physician.
- Do NOT allow sheep or goats to drink from foot bath solutions.
- Do NOT allow to freeze.
