WHY GELATIN AS A HORSE FEED?
Conditions such as chronic laminitis, cracked hooves, or dry, brittle feet incapable of holding shoes are a common and time-consuming problem for owners, trainers, farriers and veterinarians.
Gelatine improves hooves and coat; helps repair damaged cartilage, helps with joint problems, reduces stiffness and will assist with wound repair. Feeding a gelatine supplement to horses limits potential damage and supports natural repair mechanisms brought about by natural wear and tear or stress related injury. The proteins and amino acids necessary for the proper nutrition of joints, cartilage, tendons and tendon sheaths are not always present in adequate amounts in normal feeds. Gelatin helps to prevent and alleviate degenerative symptoms of arthritis and non-infectious joint complaints. Poor quality protein is an issue that commonly affects horses in training. These horses are often being feed oaten chaff with oats (which supply poor quality protein) and will benefit from extra high quality protein supplement such as gelatine.
