KAWELL began as a university project geared towards innovation, problem solving, and maintenance services for the veterinary industry. Over the last few years we have worked with specialized companies and professionals in order to develop the theoretical and technical basis needed to design and manufacture a therapeutic product for the care of horses and prevention of disease.
8 years of research we have developed the best possible combination of materials and products to achieve both goals. We must remember to pay attention and take care of our horses’ health, whether or not the animal is subjected to regular work, in order to prevent serious consequences such as injury, disease, infection and lameness, which could be irreversible.
The old saying “No Hoof – No Horse” still holds true, and the role of the farrier should never be underestimated. A high proportion of the veterinary needs for a horse are hoof-related. Most importantly: The hooves of all horses can become contaminated with FUNGI AND BACTERIA. In the event of a lax cleaning routine, this natural hazard can often lead to disease or lameness that can take several months to resolve. One of the most widespread therapeutic tools to treat these symptoms is the use of copper salts (sulfates and naphthenates among others). KAWELL horseshoes supply these salts to the animal naturally. Furthermore, the use of iron horseshoes exposes the hoof and its internal anatomic structures to repetitive impacts and vibrations, which are clinically defined as “REPEATED LOW INTENSITY TRAUMA”. Such trauma over time can lead to damage to the equine musculoskeletal system, and is the main cause of lameness in equines.
KAWELL horseshoes are made of an alloy of copper and other metals devised to give your horse a better quality of life from the very first day of use. They have bactericidal and fungicidal properties to prevent the proliferation of these microorganisms in the hooves and, even more importantly, are designed to absorb the vibrations produced by repetitive impact.Our herbal healing shampoo and oral/topical spray have been developed to help heal and maintain the horses skin and coat in the most natural way possible, without the risk of additional insult due to reactions to harsh chemicals or the “essential oils” that some horses are allergic to. The use of a healing plant with extremely low toxicity provides a safe and effective method of addressing many skin issues, including bacterial and fungal diseases such as dermatitis and ringworm. In addition it provides assistance in the healing process of wounds to the skin.
