Ranvet Hoof Food is a hoof growth promoter for horses. Ranvet Hoof Food aids in the prevention and treatment of cracked wall, contracted heels, thin soles, bruised soles, seedy toe, shallow heels, split frogs, laminitis and shelly feet. The active constituents of Ranvet Hoof Food are Biotin (500mg/kg), Gelatin (66.6g/kg), Sulphur (133.3g/kg), Methionine (286.6g/kg), Choline (6.8g/kg), Zinc (240mg/kg) and Magnesium (164.7g/kg).

Hoof growth and regeneration is very much an "inside-outside" process. Painting something onto the outside of the hoof won't cause regeneration, the hoof must receive nutrients from the blood stream in order to stimulate growth and repair.

Like every other part of the horse's body, the hoof is a living structure and depends on the nutrients carried to it by the blood stream for its growth, strength and repair. The rate of growth and regeneration of the hoof wall cannot be accelerated by any applications to its surface. Hoof tissue is nerveless and cannot repair itself. 

Replacement by way of new growth is the only solution to a damaged hoof. New growth, and the rate of new growth, will be stimulated by the nutrients contained in Ranvet Hoof Food.

The blood vessels supply nutrients as contained in Ranvet Hoof Food, to all the vital hoof structures and this is how the hoof grows, strengthens and regenerates.

The coronary band is the primary source of growth and nutrition for the hoof wall. Ranvet Hoof Food provides high levels of Biotin together with other essential pre-Keratins which are needed to promote hoof growth and repair. Biotin has been proved to stimulate horn production, and to lay it down at a faster rate, not only in the coronary band but also in the laminate, thus improving the strength and integrity of the periople, hoof wall, sole, frog and white line junction.
