The answer to your question is as follows:

If it is used in medicine after dissolving horns and hoof of halal animals whether they are sacrificed in Shariah prescribed manner or not, in both cases it will be permissible to use it. But, if it is made by dissolving the horns and hoofs of haram animals like pig and dog then it will not be allowed to make use of it even if it is in little amount. (And Allah knows best)
