Even the vets were impressed with how well it has healed in 10 weeks
Our lovely horse Yogi managed to impale/rip himself on December 28th 2017. Due to it happening during the day and us only finding it when he came up for dinner, it was unable to be stitched and had to heal as an open wound. We had experienced great wound healing in the past using The Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth pellets and we were interested in seeing how well they would work with this wound. We doubled Yogi's dosage and even the vets were impressed with how well it has healed in 10 weeks.
How could the Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth Pellets speed wound healing?
The Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth Formula provides 550mg Zinc and 125mg of Copper per 50gms dose.
Zinc is involved with growth rates and healing. Zinc to Copper ratio needs to be from 3:1 to 5:1 to achieve the optimum absorption of both minerals. The correct amount of dietary zinc speeds up wound healing – two to three times as fast as horses with a deficiency. Zinc has antioxidant properties that protect cells from damage and infection and can create healthy veins and arteries that boost blood circulation.
Zinc deficiencies can be caused by an excess intake of calcium as calcium displaces zinc. A horse fed purely on lucerne hay/chaff without supplements could have a zinc deficiency.
Primarily we use zinc in The Aussie Farrier Hoof Growth formula to boost the horses ability to heal and grow healthy tissue in the hoof. Boosted wound healing is a wonderful add-on benefit!
