Nutrition Information

Biotin is a water-soluble vitamin which is naturally occurring in a horse’s diet, and is synthesised by intestinal microbes.  Horses with poor hoof quality may require additional vitamins, minerals and amino acids to support good hoof horn growth.  One of the nutrients that helps support good hoof health in horses with poor feet is Biotin.  Feedmark’s Biotin-15 provides 15mg per 5ml scoop. 

 

Feeding Guide
 
Weight of Horse/Pony Approx. Height Amount per day
Up to 400kg/880lb Under 14hh ½ scoop
Over 400kg/800lb Over 14hh 1 scoop
1 level (5ml) scoop of Biotin 15 weighs approximately 4g/0.1oz. Each 4g/0.1oz scoop provides 15mg of actual Biotin.

Supplementing the diet with Biotin to help support healthy hoof growth is one way to approach the problem of poor quality hoof horn. Another way is to make sure you are adding the right blend of all the nutrients for healthy hooves.

If your horse has poor shoe retention, brittle, crumbling or cracked hooves or slow hoof growth, Feedmark's Hardy Hoof Formula added to the diet will make sure you are adding Biotin plus the other nutrients that help with healthy hoof growth. These ingredients include Copper, Zinc, Calcium, DL- Methionine, Lysine and Yeast. Remember that it takes approximately 9 months for the new hoof horn to grow from the coronary band down to the weight-bearing surface. So, hoof supplements such as Biotin 15 and Hardy Hoof Formula should be fed daily over the long-term.

Feed supplements should be fed according to body weight; height has been given as a guide. Introduce to the horse's diet gradually, splitting between feeds (when applicable).

Biotin 15 is a complementary feeding stuff for equine animals. Feedmark uses nothing in the formulation of this product that contravenes competition rules.
