White Lightning is a solution which has the ability, when mixed with equal parts of white vinegar, to produce chlorine dioxide. Chlorine dioxide is very aggressive in neutralizing bacteria, fungus and yeast, and has been proven to be highly effective in the treatment of White Line Disease, Thrush, and Hoof Rot
Active Ingredients: 3 % Sodium Chlorite
Directions: Liquid White Lightning® is activated by mixing it with equal parts of white vinegar. This step should be performed in paper or plastic cups, but not in metal as it is an oxidizer. White Lightning® is aggressive for 8 hours once mixed with vinegar. After 8 hours it becomes inert. Never mix more than you are going to use at one time. Hoof Soak: A foot treatment consists of 3-4 oz White Lightning®, 3-4 oz white vinegar and enough water to cover the hoof capsule. Remove shoes, if possible, and clean the hoof of dirt and debris. Insert the clean hoof in a heavy plastic bag or the vapor/soak boot containing the activated White Lightning® solution and secure the top around the leg to prevent the escape of the gas produced by the activated White Lightning® (a rubber band works well or the velcro® strap on the soak boot). Change the soak solution 2-3 times as the water helps loosen and wash away dirt and debris and will become dirty. Once the solution stays clear, stand your horse in the bag/boot for at least 40-45 minutes.
