In Hoof First, we have 40mg of biotin per 25g dose, double the strength of many of our competitors which combined with a number of other proven ingredients:
- Methionine, a sulphur rich amino acid essential in the formation of keratin
- Zinc, essential for growth and healing
- Copper lysine and vitamin B1 all balanced to ensure maximum results and satisfaction from Hoof First.
The foundation of a horse’s soundness lies in his hooves. “No hoof no horse”. This is one of the most fundamental principles there is. The hoof must receive nutrients from the blood in order to stimulate growth and repair. Combining and balancing these components is vital for hoof health and function.
Biotin is a B vitamin produced in the horse’s gut in sufficient quantity to satisfy his basic nutritional needs but some horses with poor quality, thin, brittle hoof walls and tender, thin soles benefit greatly from biotin supplementation.
On first dose of Hoof First use one 25g scoop in the feed every day until improvement is apparent, and then cut back to half a scoop daily. Ponies and small horses can be given half a scoop per day.
