Do I Need To Feed Horse Guard With Hoof Guard?


“I currently have my horses on Horse Guard – looking to improve hoof heel on one of them so going to put him on your Hoof Guard product – do I still need to keep them on the Horse Guard also?”

Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
To ensure your horse is getting adequate amounts of all his vitamins and minerals keep him on Horse Guard, as Hoof Guard is only a specific needs product and doesn’t contain a complete vitamin and mineral package. For convenience in feeding you may consider switching to Mega-Dose which contains a complete vitamin and mineral supplement, hoof supplement, and a gut supplement in a 4 oz. dose.
