Mega Hoof Complex features a nutrient profile that is superior in the elements required for the development of both quality and growth!  Because we provide all of the required elements in this maximum strength formula, Mega Hoof Complex will outdo the competition.  Improve your chances of successwith this maximum strength formula!

There are a number of elements that are responsible for the development of a healthy hoof - and a shortage in any one of them may limit how well the body is able to utilize the others.  Here is a brief overview of these elements:

Biotin has been long valued for its ability to enhance NEW horn growth. So users will need to be patient because existing hoof will need to grow out, while the new, higher quality hoof grows in.   This process may take months to complete, but studies show adequate Biotin intake can help expedite the process considerably.
Reilly et al. (1998) examined the effect of .12mg/kg bodyweight on growth and growth rate of the hooves of eight paired ponies. After five months, treated ponies had a significantly faster mean hoof growth at the midline compared to control animals. Biotin dose equivalent to 60mg/day in a 1,100lb thoroughbred horse.

Zinc & Copper are responsible for improving the integrity of the horn, itself. Horses deficient in either one, or both of these nutrients will tend to lose shoes and have cracks in their hooves. This deficiency may also be responsible for poor frog and sole health. As the integrity of the hoof is improved, the quality of the white line will improve, which can aid in preventing penetration of bacteria that can lead to white line and thrush.  Ideally the nutrient ratio of zinc:copper should lie between 3:1 & 5:1.
Coenen and Spitzlei (1997) performed a study that showed supplementation with 300-500mg of zinc per day led to an increase in the zinc content of the horn. A recent study in Japan reported that horses consuming diets low in zinc and copper were more likely to have white line disease than horses that were supplemented with higher levels of these trace minerals (Hihami, 1999) The nutrient balance between zinc:copper is very important.

l- Lysine is an essential amino acid, which is considered as ‘rate limiting’. This means that in the absence of lysine, the other amino acids don’t absorb as well. This is important to improve efficiency in protein utilization, which will ultimately growth, blood building, tissue repair, and muscle development. In a hoof supplement it directly applies to how well the l-Methionine is absorbed to enhance the Keratin content in the hoof (Keratin is the protein responsible for improving the strength of the cellular bonds that make up the hoof material).

l-Methionine is an essential amino acid, which is required by the body to assist in the formation of Cysteine & Keratin. Essentially, they help to strengthen the cellular bonds that would need to be improved when deteriorating hoof conditions are evident. The domestic horse today tends to fall short of the required levels of l-Methionine and Lysine, so supplementing several thousand milligrams daily is a great way to ensure they’re meeting their requirements.

 A study by Coenen and Spitzlei (1997) shows that 93% of the horses hoof is comprised of protein. Most of this protein is in the form of keratin, which is primarily comprised of Cysteine. Since cysteine can only be manufactured in the presence of l-Methionine, the amount of keratin produced depends directly on l-Methionine intake.

Before I started using this product, my horses feet could not hold a shoe for very long. They would just fall apart. The first month of use my horses feet changed. The shoes stayed on for 5 wks and did not crumble. This is the best my horses feet have ever been in her life. she is 11. I have tried other supplements with no success. I highly recommend this product.

I have used other hoof supplements for years and I have never had the results of the Mega Hoof Complex. Within a few months of using it the farrier even commented about the improvement in my horses hooves! He had never commented about it before! Thank you!

My vet recommended biotin nutritional support for my donkeys. I know that a TLC product is what it says it is. I have seen horse and donkey hoof flaws fill in quickly with minimal disinfection support while on Mega Hoof Complex. Thank you!
