Coldone Ice Boots and Wraps for Horses

Horse Health Product Spotlight


Coldone Inc. has developed a refreezable, neoprene line of cold compression products for equine use. Coldone Compression/Cold Wraps Reduce Pain and Swelling More Effectively Than Any Other Therapeutic Product. They are Reusable and Affordable. Coldone equine leg wraps combine cold therapy and compression therapy in a single product to reduce swelling and pain in the fetlock and hoof areas.

Equine Cold Therapy:

Horse owners and trainers have long known the value of cold therapy. Cold therapy is especially helpful in reducing inflammation and controlling pain.

In response to injury, tissues release a variety of chemicals and vasoactive substances (cytokins, prostaglandins, leukotines) that produce a cascade effect of reactions, ultimately resulting in localized swelling, heat and pain.

Applying cold therapy to a tissue injury, limits the inflammatory response by causing the blood vessels to constrict (vasoconstriction). This limits the blood flow to the injured site, moderating the release of the vasoactive substances and thus minimizes the pain and swelling in the afflicted area.

Cold Therapy to Relieve Pain:

Applying cold therapy after an acute injury helps to ease pain. Cold slows the conduction rate of sensory receptors; therefore fewer numbers of pain messages are received and processed by the brain.

Cold Therapy to Control Swelling:

After a tissue injury, there is an immediate chemical reaction at the cellular level. This reaction releases prostaglandins and histamines in the injured area. Damaged capillaries “leak” cellular waste (water, dissolved electrolytes and proteins) into the surrounding tissue.

The body sends leukocytes or scavenger cells into the area to remove damaged tissue or to kill bacteria that may be present. Once this process starts, significant amounts of fluid build in intercellular spaces causing “edema,” or swelling.

Coldone fetlock wraps combine stretchable neoprene and a cold inner layer to drive cold deep and prevent swelling.

All Coldone components are made of the highest quality products and crafted with superior workmanship. They are quite simply made to last.
