Q: Will the Gelotion’s thicker consistency cause my saddle pad or tack to slip?
A: No. The Gelotion’s naturally thick consistency makes for easier application, but does not affect the use of it with equipment. It can be used safely under tack, boots, wraps, blankets and with therapeutics with no adverse effects. Just like the liniments, the Gelotion absorbs quickly into the skin. Simply rinse or bathe the area if the Gelotion remains on the skin from multiple days of consecutive use.
Q: Will the Gelotion irritate my skin when applying like other liniments if I’m sensitive to chemicals?
A: It should not have any adverse effect to human skin. The Gelotion is a blend of herbs with no harsh additives so it should not irritate you. Many other liniments contain menthol, capsaicin or chemicals that contribute to the burning that many people and horses feel. If you have concerns consult your doctor.
Q: Can SNM Performance Ultra Gelotion be used in combination with other liniment products?
A: SNM Performance Ultra Gelotion is safe to use with any other SNM products. Though it has been combined with other products to speed absorption and accelerate beneficial properties such as antibacterial activity, we have not tested SNM with all available topical products from other manufacturers. Some combinations could cause irritation. Consult with your veterinarian if you have any questions about combining SNM Performance Ultra Gelotion with other topical products.
Q: What are the added benefits of having a liniment in a “Gelotion” form?
A: The added benefit is that the Gelotion has a thicker consistency. This makes it an ideal choice to apply to areas on the horse where regular liquid liniments may run off. It offers a precise application.
Q: Can I use Performance Ultra Gelotion on other areas of the body besides the lower limbs?
A: Yes. This depends on the area, but you can use the Gelotion on other places besides the legs. We do not recommend using on open wounds or delicate areas like the nostrils or eyes. Consult with your veterinarian before application if you intend on using the Gelotion outside of labeled uses.

SNM® PERFORMANCE ULTRA POULTICE
Q: Is it safe to apply SNM Performance Ultra Poultice by itself and turn my horse out?
A: The SNM poultices are designed to be safely used alone and without wraps or supervision. You may apply directly before turning your horse out. We recommend letting the poultice dry before turning out. We also don’t recommend turning out with the poultice on in cold or wet weather, because this can cause the poultice to not be as effective.
Q: Is SNM Performance Ultra Poultice easy to remove if I don’t have access to wash area?
A: The SNM poultices are just as easy to remove as they are to apply. Once the poultice is fully dry, it can be easily brushed off the legs or picked out of hooves. If you know you’ll be regularly removing poultice without water, then try using a slightly thinner application.
Q: How can I use the SNM Performance Ultra Poultice to draw out a hoof abscess?
A: Our poultices can be used in place of or with a hoof packing of your choice to help draw out abscesses. We recommend applying a protective boot or hoof wrap over the poultice to avoid contamination. This will help increase effectiveness and draw out the abscess faster.
Q: Can I use Performance Ultra Poultice on other areas of the body besides the lower limbs and hooves?
A: Yes. This depends on the area, but you can use the poultice on other places besides hooves and legs. Be sure to not use the poultice in areas that come into contact with riding equipment while exercising. We do not recommend using on open wounds or delicate areas like the nostrils or eyes. Consult with your veterinarian before application if you intend on using the poultice outside of labeled uses.
