Intra Hoof-fit Bath Liquid
Intra Hoof-fit Bath Liquid is an antibiotic free, formalin free & copper sulphate free foot bath to keep cow hooves healthy & help prevent digital dermatitis, and contagious ovine digital dermatitis (CODD) in sheep.
Intra Hoof-fit Bath Liquid is both effective and pleasant to use. It is kind to hooves and does not sting or hurt the dairy cow. Not only does this minimise stress and discomfort, but also means that cows are less likely to rush through the bath, resulting in a longer contact time.
This green concentrated foot bath liquid is non-corrosive and non hazardous, user friendly and safe to use in front of the milking parlour. for use on sheep, farmers must be cautious of allowing the sheep to drink any solution containing the Hoof-Fit as it contains copper which can be toxic if ingested. By exposing the hooves to the Intra Hoof fit Bath Liquid before entering the parlour, the product remains on the hooves during milking, extending the contact time. Foot baths placed in front of the parlour are also less likely to become contaminated with manure.
Hoof-fit Bath Liquid also contains conditioning ingredients to keep the claws and feet of dairy cows and other animals in optimum condition.
This mix of chelated copper, chelated zinc and aloe vera means this is a legal (unlike copper sulphate), welfare friendly (unlike formulin) hoof bath with no withdrawal time for the milk as well as being kind to the environment.
Formaldehyde is currently under a long running review by Europe for it’s use as a disinfectant in agriculture due to the high levels of toxicity, links to cancer and potential residues in food. An opinon by the Biocidal Products Committee found that it was not-acceptable for use in the disinfection of animals’ feet and that “no safe use of formaldehye in the animals’ feet scenario can be demonstrated” and that “animal welfare has to be considered thoroughly”.

If digital dermatitis has taken hold, a curative treatment approach is necessary and treatment with Intra Hoof-fit Gel may then be necessary.
The Intra Hoof-fit bath liquid is one of the products in the effective hoof care range developed by Intracare. The antibiotic-free range of Hoof-fit products allow claw problems to be managed in a more effective, healthier and sustainable way. All have been developed in close cooperation with dairy farmers, veterinarians, hoof-trimmers and cattle specialists and have been thoroughly field tested.
We recommend that the Intra Hoof-fit Bath Liquid is used in conjunction with the Intra Bath which has many advantages over traditional foot baths.
