Cavalor® PodoGuard is a unique blend of nourishing and essential oils which penetrate deep into the hoof resulting in an optimal hoof condition. NO HOOF, NO HORSE Did you know that the healthy hoof expands and contracts as the horse walks? This is possible thanks to the natural resilience of the hoof. Big fluctuations in temperature and humidity between night and day, especially during summer, will make it hard for the hooves not to lose too much moisture. Overdrying will disturb the flexibility of the hoof resulting in cracked hooves. The nourishing oil in Cavalor® PodoGuard will penetrate deep into the hoof and create an ideal moisture balance. This will promote better hoof growth, development and quality. Broken or damaged hooves can recover while a new, healthy hoof grows in. Too much moisture on the other hand isn’t beneficial either. Hooves mainly consist of keratin, the same protein that can be found in your fingernails. When they are soaked in water and mud, they will soften. The natural protective oils will then be stripped away making them more susceptible to invading organisms. In this case, Cavalor® PodoGuard will act as a real antibacterial barrier to keep moisture and micro-organisms out.
