How to use Kieffer’s Cooling Boot, and how does it work?

Kieffer’s Cooling Boot consists of soft Kiefferpren material, which is also used for our conventional Kieffer boots.
A highlight of this product is that the inner surface of the boot is lined with Velcro for attaching the cooling pads which come with the boots.

Before use, simply place the cooling pads (suitable for sensitive skin and filled with cooling gel) into the freezer and attached to the boots when frozen. Put the boots on your horse as you would a normal set of boots - an enlarged closing flap enables easy adjustment to the individual horse’s hooves and guaranteeing a perfect fit.

Kieffer’s Cooling Boot comes as a set with one pair of boots and two pairs of cooling pads - also seperately available as accessory parts. The cooling pads enable stressless cooling for up to three hours, and need to be frozen again before being re-used.

If a continual cooling process is required, we recommend using 2 – 3 sets of pads in rotation.

Due to the targeted, permanent cooling on the affected tissue, Kieffer’s Cooling Boots positive and soothing effects helping the horse to regain his wellbeing and mobility.

Please note:

The Kieffer Cooling Boot should not be used in the following instances:

  • On open wounds
  • In combination with cooling gel under the bell boot

Development history

Kieffer developed this exciting new product in close collaboration with Mrs. Andrea Urban, the owner of ‘Keltenschanze’ stud farm based near our Head Quarters in Germany. One of Mrs. Urbans sport ponys suffered from persistent laminitis, and was prescribed permanent cooling of the hooves as treatment.

Working with conventional methods like cooling water baths has proved to be difficult to manage with the horse, and the second method, applying a cooling dressing, was also impractical as the cooling effects lasted for a limited time only. With both of these methods, excessive moisture may actually cause more harm to the hoof structure as both processes and soften the hoof and it can become even more sensitive.

Despite a comprehensive search to find an alternate solution that would remove the secondary effects of the cooling methods, Mrs Urban could find no good alternative - so she decided to contact Kieffer in the hope of finding a way to solve her horse’s problem.

Working closely together we have developed Kieffer’s Cooling Boot resulting in an innovative, simple to use product, combining the proven Kieffer quality with medical benefits for horses suffering from laminitis or inflammatory processes inside the hooves.

We would like to say a big „Thank you“ to Mrs. Urban for her trust and belief in Kieffer and the successful results of our collaboration.

Please seek advice from your vet with regard to any laminitic, foot-related or inflammatory symptoms found in your horse.
