St. Hippolyt Biotin Hoof Mixture – nutrients for healthy hooves
An important vitamin for a healthy hoof is biotin, a water soluble vitamin of the B group.
The B vitamins are normally produced in sufficient quantities in the horse’s healthy large intestine.
Lack of crude fibre, poorer quality roughage or a one-sided diet can lead to a reduced build-up of biotin in the large intestine.
Signs of a biotin deficiency may include
- retarded hoof growth
- Reduced horn quality,
- skin disorders,
- muscle tension,
- nervousness and
- loss of performance
Biotin Hoof Mixture is a supplement to promote the formation of a healthy hoof horn.
It combines biotin in an effective daily dose with vital substances for hoof stability such as organically bound zinc, brewer’s yeast, fermented grains and sulphur-containing amino acids.
For persistent hoof problems we recommend Ungulat: the holistic hoof treatment with all the nutritional building blocks for healthy hoof growth.
