“As the old saying goes – no hoof, no horse,” said Casey Fleming, Senior Manager of Product Development at SmartPak. “When developing SmartHoof Ultimate, we worked closely with hoof care professionals, who are out in the field, identifying areas of support that they see their clients needing most.

This formula is built to provide the most comprehensive combination of ingredients for the ultimate level of support!”

For healthy hooves, there are four areas of support to focus on:

  • Hoof horn/wall quality and rate of growth
  • Healthy circulation to the foot
  • Combating discomfort and inflammation associated with exercise, conformation, and aging
  • Bone health

SmartHoof Ultimate is the perfect choice for horse owners looking to provide support for their horses who may have hoof health challenges. Horses faced with poor quality/weak hoof horn (aka hoof wall) will benefit from ingredients such as biotin, key minerals, collagen, lecithin, silica, and essential amino acids (methionine, threonine, lysine), all of which have been shown to support hoof quality and growth. 

Proper circulation to the foot is also important, and ingredients such as L-arginine, bilberry extract, and Flo-Ox® support normal blood flow to the foot.

Some horses may also struggle with heel soreness, shortened stride, or thin sensitive soles. In addition to the ingredients previously listed, other Ingredients such as turmeric, yucca, boswellia, bromelain, MSM, and omega 3 fatty acids from flaxseed assist to combat discomfort and inflammation associated with exercise, conformation, and aging.

There may also be times where a veterinarian or farrier recommends circulatory support for the feet or bone support, related to the feet, which is why SmartHoof Ultimate also includes calcium, magnesium, boron (Cinq-B™), Vitamin D, Vitamin K for bone health.

As part of the company’s mission to support healthy horses, SmartPak is pleased to be returning as an educational partner for the 2019 International Hoof Care Summit in Cincinnati, OH from January 22 - 25. SmartPak will officially be unveiling SmartHoof Ultimate, and will have experts on hand to answer any questions regarding hoof health and beyond.
