    I mix my own.  I do have the mix like your vet sells
    then I have iodine mixed with turpentine then I have
    the plain ole iodine.
    I've put the iodine/formaldehyde mix on my multi-day
    horse and left his EZ boots on all week plus the 2-day
    trip home (they wouldn't come off!).  His feet were
    none the worse for wear.
    On the other hand, your observation seems logical to
    me AND formaldehyde is hard to come by now-a-days (at
    least in this area).
    One consideration would be the brittleness of the hoof
    wall.  I'd imaging a good moisturizer on the cornet
    band would be helpful.
