First+Ice is a cold therapy product developed to soothe a horse’s aching hock, tendons, ligaments, muscle and other soft tissue injuries. The dry cold material is solid coming from the freezer. A simple 20 second massage of the re-freezable/re-usable bag results in a loose, flexible cold source that configures to the horse’s hock, cannon and tendon area immediately.
Contains 1 insulated hock wrap and 2 First+Ice inserts.
Store the First+Ice packages in your home or stable refrigerator freezer chamber. Remove just before you plan to use. Store in an insulated cooler if you are unable to use them immediately.
Cross tie the horse in a stall or wash rack. Wet down the horse’s hock(s) with a sponge.
Use 2 First+Ice packs for each hock wrap. Massage the First+Ice pack to loosen the beads of ice-cold relief. Insert 2 First+Ice packs in each wrap after the packs have been massaged. Apply the wraps to the treatment area of the leg and secure with the straps. Three straps on each wrap provide for a well-configured fit to the hock area. After use, the packs can be wiped down with a damp cloth and returned to the freezer until the next use. Store the wrap separately in a dry place.
