White Lightening comes in gel tubes or a soak and is highly effective in treating white line disease, and can also be used as a preventative. I like the soak better because it treats the entire hoof inside and out but it’s also kind of a pain to do. You shouldn’t have to use it often though.

Just making sure you clean out her feet frequently and don’t allow her to stand in mud or manure for long periods of time – if you don’t have a choice applying something that will help keep excess moisture out will help, like Keratex Hoof Gel.

And always make sure she stays up to date with trimming… Flaring is a huge contributor.
