How to Use
If you are using liquid zinc for the treatment, put the boot on first then add the liquid. Pull the strap tight and use SureFlexx™ Elastic Bandage Wrap to seal the top.
The boot should be on no more than one to two days. Keep the animal in a clean dry area and repeat treatment if needed.

This product works well if you can contain the sheep in a more confined space for a few days (dry lot or barn) and then take the boot off after a couple of days. The very best way to ensure it stays on, in our use, was to use the bandage wrap and start on the Mediboot and then wrap around the leg of the sheep. It was still able to pivot, which we didn't like, but it made sure it stayed on and the sheep with footrot could keep the foot dry and allow the FootCure to work. Wouldn't recommend for smaller sheep or lambs.
Boot was lost the first day. Still looking for it in the pasture. Hope to find it by winter. Darn! I really wanted it to work. Now I am wrapping my goat's foot with vet wrap and it's doing the job.

Looks to be well made but did not fit our Suffolk Ram. Would be nice if they stated that in the write up. Maybe make a bigger one for Rams only. This is pretty spendy when you figure in the shipping. Quite disappointed!
OK - so these are made of quality material. That's all I can say that is good.
As a veterinarian that sees my clients battle foot rot in the wet months, I was hoping that these would be a good, easy solution. After all, ease is the answer to compliance. Well - I bought a few and tried them myself on some animals, whether they needed it or not. SO poor Barb Marley, the patient good ewe got to be the experimental critter. As patient as she is, there was NO keeping this boot on. Not on her front feet, not on her back feet. Just NO!
they do NOT flex with the carpus/tarsus...
they do NOT fit securely on sheep or goats, perhaps a Velcro circumferential wrap or a softer neoprene "ankle" area with closure would work better. They are not able to be snugged up against the distal limb and therefore are useless if the animal is ambulatory. These are NOT like EZ-boots for horses or Hoof-its or other cow gloves. Perhaps I went into this purchase expecting more.
I can imagine that these boots would be helpful if you were to leave an animal in a head tie/ stantion / working chute where they could not walk around. It would possibly work to do a temporary soak, but they do not work for a protective foot covering in an unrestrained animal.
Excellent product and excellent service!
