Hoofgain™ - Hoof Supplement for Horses
Same trusted and proven Mitavite® formula in a new look – exclusive to Mitavite® and Hygain®!
AN AID IN THE MAINTENANCE OF HOOF INTEGRITY
A blend of essential vitamins, minerals and fatty acids in a palatable formulation.
Hygain® HOOFGAIN™ is a safe and comprehensive hoof supplement for horses. Our formula provides critical minerals that your horse can't produce on its own - in addition to other crucial vitamins. Contains:
Biotin: A vital co-enzyme to assist in the forming of Keratin from key amino acids.
Methionine: A primary sulphur bearing amino acid that along with cysteine (which Methionine can synthesize) are essential ingredients in Keratin. Methionine must be provided in increased levels where hoof growth is desired.
Zinc: Key mineral in hoof and coat health. Hoof quality will often suffer where Zinc supply is marginal.
Vitamin A: One of the carotenoids essential to all keratinized tissue. Supplementation particularly essential for horses not on high quality fresh pasture.
Vitamin E: Benefits of Vitamin E as an antioxidant are well documented and is also an essential nutrient for renewal of Keratin.
Omega 3 Fatty Acids: Essential nutrient in the formation of supple and strong membranes including hoof wall microtubules and laminae.
Iodine: Deficiency in this mineral often causes poor coat and hoof quality.
Why are Hoof Supplements for Horses Important?
Hoof supplements for horses are often needed for two major reasons:
- A horse is often only as healthy as its hoofs. Horses are literally on their hoofs all day and cannot perform their desired workload if they are in pain or have poor structural health.
- Hoof supplements are engineered to provide important vitamins that are often missing from a horse's natural diet. Just as important, the horse supplements provide minerals that a horse cannot produce on its own. The only source of these minerals are straight from the feed and supplements they eat.
If your horse has a demanding workload or is advancing in its years, we strongly encourage you to discuss a hoof supplement for your horse with your veterinarian.
