Digestive health is the key to strong, healthy hooves.

When it comes to maintaining strong, healthy hooves, both the veterinarian and the farrier have something to bring to the table. The farrier plays a critical role in the horse’s hoof health, but beautiful, sound feet are the result of more than just regular trimming and shoe maintenance.

A strong hoof wall starts inside with optimal digestive health. The best farriers and veterinarians work together with horse owners and take a team approach to maintaining overall equine wellness. Supporting the horse’s GI health through good feeding and husbandry practices is the best method of maintaining healthy feet, in addition to the many other aspects of health and performance a client, vet, farrier team manages.

Recommend SUCCEED to your clients as a way to promote digestive wellness that supports better hoof health. Combined with your expert farrier work, the horses you care for will have the most beautiful and functional feet for whatever their lifestyle or discipline.
