The development of healthy bones starts during gestation and continues as long as the horse is growing. Healthy bones and joints are crucial for a horse's health and future performance. Nutrition plays an essential role here. With Pavo Podo®Care, you provide a mineral balancer with the essential building blocks in the right ratio, without feeding additional energy and proteins.
Podo®: the proven concept for healthy bone development
Pavo has always done a lot of research into the ideal feed for the breeding world and from here the Pavo Podo® concept has been developed. The Podo® concept is an unique mineral complex that is scientifically proven to decrease the probability of developing OC(D) in young horses by 50%. Pavo Podo®Care is enriched with this unique and proven Podo® concept and, therefore, optimally supports healthy bone development.
Balancer for growing horses and overweight mares
Pavo Podo®Care provides all the vitamins, minerals and trace elements your horse needs, but does not contain additional energy and protein. Therefore, it is very suitable for pregnant mares (from 9 months of gestation onwards) that easily become overweight when feeding concentrates. In that case, the mare does not need additional energy and protein, but with feeding Pavo Podo®Care you guarantee that the foal receives all the essential building blocks that are necessary for a healthy (bone) development. Pavo Podo®Care is also suitable for growing horses that get overweight easily. Overweight in growing horses is not beneficial as it impairs healthy development.
Tip! Foals will start showing interest in solid food around 3 weeks. To still be able to provide young foals with all the essential minerals right from the first day, we developed the Pavo Podo®Care liquid. This product is nutritionally similar to Pavo Podo®Care but developed in the form of a paste.
