What is the best supplement for cracked hooves?
Cracked hooves are a common problem for horses as the seasons change. When paddocks fluctuate between wet and dry it can cause the hoof to expand and contract rapidly- this can cause hooves to crack.
This May we have seen temperatures rise but we have had wet and stormy weather too, so many horse owners are looking for a supplement to improve the quality of their horse's hooves that are taking a hit at this time of year.
Providing nutritional support, through a specially formulated hoof supplement, is the best way to support and maintain good hoof health. The reason a dietary hoof supplement is the most effective way to improve the quality of the hoof is that, with enough of the right nutrients, it can stimulate and accelerate hoof growth.
You should keep in mind that a hoof supplement will not improve the quality of the existing hoof, it will just ensure that the new hoof growth will come through faster, stronger and with better quality.
