During its first months of life, a foal needs a lot of building blocks for a healthy bone development. But it is of utmost importance that these substances are available in the right quantaties. Too much of one mineral or too little of another can lead to disorders, such as OC or OCD. If the quantities are incorrect, the intake of the required minerals can be impaired.
Pavo PodoCare; minerals in the right ratio: Pavo PodoCare contains the minerals phosphorus, magnesium, calcium and vitamin D to support optimum growth of the bone tissue. Specifically, phosphorus and magnesium are the key for a healthy bone build-up. People often incorrectly assume that foals need extra calcium, however, this is abundantly present in the mare’s milk and in the roughage. Based on the latest scientific research, the ratio of minerals in Pavo PodoCare are carefully tailored to the foal’s requirements. The product does not contain wheat, so it is suitable for a gluten-free diet.
Feeding advice Pavo PodoCare: Try to make the foal eat Pavo PodoCare from as young an age as possible. At four to six weeks, foals usually try eating solid food, usually by eating from their mothers’ feed bowls. It is recommended to teach them to eat independently from a young age, by offering them their own separate feed bowl at a small distance from the mare.
Pavo PodoCare is available in an 8 kg bucket.
