Description

Pegasus Hoof Power Xtra is a combination of high levels of biotin with essential minerals zinc and copper, essential amino acids methionine and lysine, and natural alfalfa, which will help your horse grow strong hoof walls and have excellent coat quality. The synergistic combination of these ingredients at optimal levels is a powerful blend giving better results for hooves, skin and coat than biotin alone.

Hoof and hair is made of a dense protein called keratin, and the amino acids, nutrients and minerals in Hoof Power Xtra are essential for strong, durable keratin. Keratin relies on sufficient sulphur to maintain its strength and resilience, and the essential amino acid methionine is a rich source of sulphur. In addition, lysine is the amino acid most often deficient in equine diets, so shortages will limit the helpful effects of biotin.

Zinc and copper are essential minerals that both play roles in keratin synthesis. Copper is also required for enzymes that are involved in the formation of bonds in collagen fibres and in skin and hair pigments. Low zinc concentrations in hoof horn have been associated with decreases in strength and hardness.

Recommended for

  • Horses with hoof challenges including brittle, crumbling or cracked walls, poor soles and slow growing horn
  • Horses that are shod frequently or tend to pull their shoes off regularly
  • Support healthy hoof laminae
  • Horses which rely on poor-quality pasture for a proportion of their diet
  • Help with a healthy haircoat
