Biotin is a B-vitamin that is important for healthy hooves, skin and hair. Biotin is best known as a supplement to improve hoof quality and to support healthy hooves and is often recommended where horses have soft and/or brittle hooves.
Studies have found an improvement to hoof hardness and condition by adding biotin to the diet at a rate of 15mg to 25mg per day. As only new hoof growth is affected it is necessary to supplement biotin for at least 8 months depending on how fast the rate of hoof growth is.
In most cases you can see the new healthy growth from the coronet within a couple of months.
As the daily amount to feed is only 1 gram which is approx 1/4tsp it is easy to administer by adding to a small amount of feed.
Each gram contains 20mg of Biotin in a maltodextrin carrier.
For 1 horse we recommend a 200 gram bag as this should last approximately 200 days.
Available in 200g, 400g and 1kg bags.
Continued supplementation may be required to retain beneficial results.
