Developing healthy bones and joints is crucial for a horse's health and future performance. Especially in the first 2,5 years, nutrition is one of the essential factors to prevent joint problems such as OC and OCD. With the rearing pellet Pavo Podo®Grow, your young horse will get all the important nutrients to optimally support growth and bone development.
Young horses grow tremendously. Growth is positive, as long as it happens at a steady and good pace. When a young horse grows too quickly and the growth is uneven, there is an increased risk of disruption in the bone development process. Naturally this increases the chance of joint problems.
Energy and protein are essential nutrients for healthy growth. Pavo Podo®Grow provides the young horse with sufficient energy and is rich in high quality proteins, enabling healthy muscle development.
Podo®: the proven concept for healthy bones
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®Grow is equipped with this unique and proven Podo® concept and, therefore, optimally supports healthy bone development. Click here to find out more about the Podo®-concept.
Besides providing high quality proteins and sufficient energy, Pavo Podo® Grow also provides the horse with prebiotics, supporting a healthy digestion. Additionally, the ingredient CellProtect (antioxidants), supports uptake of excipients and protects against free radicals (molecules that can damage cells and cause illness).
