Product Description

Super Hoof Pellets Plus has been formulated to provide key nutrients, scientifically proven to be important in the production and maintenance of sound, healthy hooves.

It had been recognized since the 1980’s that biotin plays a vital role in the growth of new hoof horn, which is produced from special keratinized cells which form tubules from the coronary band to the base of the hoof wall. Researchers noted that supplemental biotin (20g for a 500kg horse and up to 30g for a 600kg + horse) resulted in improvements in new horse growth, (but had little effect on already poor quality or damaged horn), with positive results noted at the coronary band recorded after several weeks of supplementation.

Further research demonstrated the importance of sulphur in helping to form the double- bonds securing the tubules, to result in a strong and healthy hoof wall. Bio-available sulphur is provided both from the sulphur-containing amino acids, including methionine, and also from MSM (methyl sulphonyl methane) in Super Hoof Plus Pellets.

Key minerals such as zinc, copper and manganese are also recognized to play vital roles in hoof quality and are included from both organic and inorganic sources in Super Hoof Plus Pellets, to ensure optimum bioavailability.

The role of the gut microbiome is increasingly recognized to play an important role in many areas of metabolic health, including the production of strong, healthy hooves. The inclusion of a probiotic helps to ensure gut health, which in turn will support hoof health.

The inclusion of vitamins C and E, as well as a potent blend of plant-based antioxidants, including rosehips, together with milk thistle and dandelion helps to provide support for the liver and the immune system, which are both vital to promote health and wellbeing, including hoof growth. Horses who have suffered an illness or metabolic dysfunction such as laminitis, will often show “rings” on their hooves, indicating the disruption to healthy hoof growth during the disease or illness.

So Super Hoof Plus Pellets provide not only scientifically supported levels of key nutrients which have a direct effect on hoof growth and quality, but also a range of other nutrient and plant-based compound to support overall health and wellbeing, which will also promote hoof health.

Do remember that whilst new, stronger horn will be visible from the coronary band after a few weeks, it typically takes between 8 and 12 months for the hoof wall to be fully replaced, and demonstrate the benefits of supplementation with Super Hoof Plus Pellets.

Ingredients & Nutrition

A complementary feed for horses and ponies, designed to support and maintain healthy hooves, as part of a balanced diet.

Biotin is included at 30mg per 100g serve, to support high quality horn growth from the coronary band to the base of the hoof wall.

MSM  provides a bio-available source of sulphur to support and help strengthen the bonds between the hoof tubules. It also helps to support a normal inflammatory response.

Methionine  is a sulphur containing amino acid, and provides a bioavailable source of sulphur to support the sulphur bonds between the tubules. 

Key minerals zinc, copper, manganese and calcium play key roles in helping to maintain the structural integrity of the hoof wall, and are provided from both organic mineral glycinates as well as inorganic salts to ensure optimum bio-availability.

Probiotics help to support the gut microbiome, which is fundamental to overall health and wellbeing, including hoof health

Antioxidants from vitamins C and E, together with phytochemicals from rosehips and peppermint help to neutralize damaging free radicals and support the immune system.

Milk Thistle and dandelion extracts help to support the liver and immune system, to ensure optimum health, and in turn, hoof horn production and quality.
