Biotin supplement for horses

BMZ is a biotin, methionine and zinc (organic) supplement. A quality hoof care topdress formulated specifically to increase hoof growth and integrity. Methionine is interchangeable with cysteine, a major amino acid of keritin, which is the main protein in connective tissue, such as hoof wall. Research has demonstrated that hoof integrity is directly related to zinc content in the hoof wall.

To optimize the diet

  • Purina recommends analyzing your hay and balancing the ration accordingly.
  • Feed clean and dust free hay in sufficient amount daily. Feeding poor quality hay or feeding inadequate amounts could cause colic and other digestive upsets.
  • Offer source of salt (NaCl) daily as well as plenty of fresh and clean water at all times.
  • Make any feed change gradually over a 7 to 10 days period.
  • Daily ration should be divided into 2 and pre-ferably 3 separate feedings or more.
  • Use a scale to weigh your feed so you know exactly how much your horse is being fed. Do not feed by volume.
  • These recommendations are intended as a guide. They should be adjusted to variables of management, environment and individual needs. Consult your Purina Equine Consultant if necessary.
  • Follow sound management practices along with optimal preventive veterinary medicine.
Caution
Directions for use must be carefully followed. Feed is perishable. Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, abortion or death.
