Biotin is perhaps the best-known supplement for the treatment of hoof issues. There are only a few studies examining the effects of biotin on horses, with inconclusive results. In practice, however, the numbers of horses with visibly improved hooves after biotin supplementation cannot be denied.
Biotin is naturally present in grass among other things, and Cavalor® feeds are also enriched with biotin to encourage healthy hoof growth. In addition, some bacteria in the colon are capable of producing biotin. Exactly how much biotin a horse requires is unknown, but problem hooves will definitely benefit from a higher dose.
Please note that at least 25-30 mg biotin per day is necessary to create a noticeable effect. Cavalor® Hoof Aid Special contains a relatively high daily dose of biotin for this reason. In addition to biotin, Cavalor® Hoof Aid Special also contains many other ingredients of proven effect on hoof quality and development. To guarantee the stability of Cavalor® Hoof Aid Special, the vitamins in this product are separated from the trace elements. This keeps the trace elements and the vitamins from reacting with each other and ensures optimal effectiveness.
The green pellets contain vitamins and minerals such as MSM, B vitamins, Vitamin C and choline chloride, which affect a significant number of bodily functions.
The beige pellets contain, among other things, the trace elements copper and zinc in easily-absorbed forms.
Cavalor® Hoof Aid Special also contains the essential amino acids lysine and the sulphur-containing methionine to promote hoof flexibility. In addition to these ingredients to support hoof development and quality, Cavalor® Hoof Aid Special also contains live yeasts. These aid the digestion and ensure optimal absorption of the feed, contributing to the horse’s general condition and vitality.
