Second in our #FebruaryFocusOnSupplements series is the hoof supplement Biotex-80. Poor hoof quality is a common complaint amongst horse owners. Weak hooves can be the primary cause of many painful conditions such as white line disease, recurrent solar bruising and quarter cracks. Maintaining the integrity of the hoof wall is a key strategy in preventing lameness in your horse, as all of their weight is carried on what is essentially a finger nail. To optimise hoof growth and improve the integrity of the hoof, we recommend using a supplement from the Hestevard range called Biotex-80, which provides all the nutrients necessary to protect and nourish every layer within the hoof horn. The sulphur enriched formula also boasts significant levels of key ingredients essential to prevent and aide in recovery of the hoof disorders mentioned above (see attached table). Horse's hooves grow from the coronary band downwards at a rate of 6 - 10mm per month and take a year to fully grow out. This means that it can take 6-12 months to see the benefits from using any hoof supplement, but with Hestevard you have the security of 2 guarantees: a palatability one and a satisfaction one - if you see no improvement after the use of three consecutive tubs then you will be refunded (each tub provides a 50 day supply for a horse and a 100 day supply for a pony). Please contact the office if you would like to find out more about this supplement or place an order. And if you missed our first post in the series which was on joint supplements then make sure you scroll back through our page and take a look!

#FebruaryFocusOnSupplements First up - joint supplements!

Degenerative joint disease (DJD) is a common issue among both performance and pleasure horses. Cartilage in the joint is made up of collagen fibres, glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), proteoglycans, and a watery matrix that is continually produced and broken down. If these components are being degraded more than they should (as is the case with DJD) the cartilage loses its ability to absorb forces through the joint space resulting in pain for the horse. To help maintain healthy cartilage and increase comfort levels in horses currently suffering from DJD, we can supplement our horse's feed with formulations that include ingredients such as:

*Glucosamine - a precursor and stimulates synthesis of GAGs
*Chondroitin - the predominant GAG in joint cartilage
*MSM - provides sulfur needed to promote healthy cartilage
*Hyaluronic Acid - a main component to joint fluid to aid in lubrication of the cartilage surface
*Boswellia Serrata - a natural anti-inflammatory

We currently supply and recommend Hestevard supplements that contain veterinary strength levels of the above ingredients in various combinations in their Duraflex line (all competition safe). Please get in contact with us so we can help direct you to which product your horse would benefit the most from.

We have been searching for him in the local area but so far have not been able to trace him. As he has slipped his collar if anyone finds him they will not know who to contact - please call Susie on 07825069225. Thank you!
