PRO*KOLD Equine Ice Packs
"Icing Made Easy" - 100% Reusable

Pro-Kold leg wraps for horses solve age-old problems of treating leg injuries. Prior to the introduction of Pro-Kold  Reusable wraps, the only way to provide cold therapy was "hosing", buckets of ice, or a myriad of ways trainers and owners developed to reduce swelling and inflammation in horses legs.

The four Pro-Kold Equine wraps allow cold treatment to be delivered to any leg position without exposing the hoof to water. When frozen, the pillows of purified water melt in place, thereby providing uniform cold therapy up to two hours without trainer or owner involvement.
 

Pro-Kold inserts are frozen separately and placed in the pockets which can be refrozen and used again and again. Each wrap has three elastic straps to provide compression and to keep the wrap in place.

 

Magnet inserts are also available which fit into the wrap 
pockets when magnetic therapy is appropriate.

Major Features:
  • Allows ice treatment - without exposing hoof to water.  Encapsulated, re-freezable water solution eliminates cracked hooves and fungus infections resulting from prolonged water contact; also reduces stall and stable cleanup normally resulting from ice and water.
  • Multiple uses - simple design fits any leg position.
  • Convenient - Unit construction with straps attached makes installation simple and reduces labor requirements usually involved with ice or cold water therapy.
  • Affordable - Wraps can be purchased individually.
  • Durable - Nylon casing and industrial grade polymers ensure long life with repeated usage - wrap can be hosed off or washed and air dried.
  • Provides Mobility - Panel design allows horse to be mobile while receiving ice treatment.  Ice treatment can be administered for up to 2 hours with out personnel standing by.
  • Delivers Uniform Cold - Ice Pillows stay in place while thawing instead of slipping to bottom of the wrap as crushed ice does.
  • Inserts can be removed and frozen separately.

Thermography Case Studies 
by David Clark DVM:

Thermography uses new advanced infrared technology to detect heat and inflammation.  It is an excellent tool for those tough lameness's and soft tissue injuries.  We have been using thermography since 1988.  At times we may cool the horse or an area with a cold water bath / hose then watch for heat to radiate out from deeper structures.  

We watch for symmetry comparing side to side right leg to left leg etc.  We consider greater than 2 F difference as usually significant.  It is important to know anatomy and circulation patterns for areas.

At times, areas such as tendons may begin showing heat or inflammation up to 2 weeks prior to developing a lameness.  With thermography, changes in circulation may be noted even before lesions can be confirmed by ultrasound.

Here are images of a 5 year old chariot horse with a mild sprain of his right front suspensory before, during and after treatment with a Pro-Kold Ice Wrap.

These are images of a mare that ran something into the bone just above the joint in the hock. We removed a piece of infected bone that was a sequestrum and wouldn't allow the draining tract to seal.

As you can see by all the heat this was an angry inflamed wound 
and the ice boot worked great, didn't slip

After treatment

Here is a horse that ran into a steel post and fractured a rib. The area that shows up square is clipped for ultrasound, and then surgery. A sliver of bone was removed that had fractured away.

Some of the images, just to look at them don't at first look that impressive, but once you look at the temperatures statistically there is a difference for over an hour.

Before we started there was a 10 degrees difference, right when we removed the ice wrap the difference was 3 degrees, after 20 minutes 5 degrees, after 1 hour 8 degrees.
