“I am very interested in your hoof products. However, do you have any hoof supplements that aren’t extruded as my horse doesn’t find them to be very palatable. Thank you.”


Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:

Our products that are exclusively hoof supplements are only sold in the extruded form. However, Trifecta, which contains a full dose of Hoof Guard, a vitamin-mineral supplement, gut supplement, and powerful joint supplement is a pelleted product.

When talking about hoof supplements we have a few different options.

The first is Hoof Guard, which contains 32 mg of biotin, zinc, methionine, and MSM. This product is great for horses that have dry, shelly hooves that have a tendency to crack.

The second is Biotin Hoof Blast, which contains 100 mg of biotin, zinc, methionine, and MSM. This product is designed for horses with really bad cracked hooves or horses that have had a resection or part of a hoof wall removed.


As I said before, Trifecta is a 4-1 product that contains a hoof supplement, and is in the pelleted form.
