How To Remove FormaHoof

At the end of the cycle, FormaHoof applications are removed from the hoof in order to trim the feet. The polyurethane used by FormaHoof is not a strong adhesive and does not form a strong chemical bond to the hoof like other products do, allowing a clean and damage-free removal process within minutes.
