When to feed BoneKare
The development of a healthy and robust skeleton begins during pregnancy and it is vital that growing foals receive the right nutrition throughout gestation. An appropriate intake of vitamin K1 helps offer the best start to becoming a healthy, strong athlete in the future.
Weanlings to Young sport horses
As we know, the early years are the most important in terms of growth and development. Young bones go through a period of growth and remodelling, as the horse matures. Balanced nutrition, including a full spectrum of vitamins, minerals and other micronutrients is essential at this time to support correct development and to reduce the likelihood of developmental orthopaedic disease. Young horses need a readily available source of vitamin K1 as part of their balanced diet to support normal growth and development.
Bone regeneration after surgery
BoneKare™ provides an important source of vitamin K1 to support normal bone and tissue repair following bone related injury or surgery, such as fracture or arthroscopy (chip removal).
Keeping older horses "fit"
Horses of all ages will benefit from being fed a bio-available form of Vitamin K1 to maintain bone density and strength. This is especially important for stabled horses that don’t have significant access to green pasture as well as older horses where bone mineralisation or density declines with age.
BoneKare is suitable particularly for:
Broodmares and growing youngstock
Horses on box rest
Horses who have limited access to grazing or where grazing quality is poor.
Horses who undertake strenuous activity
