Lebanon, PA, USA – (April 12, 2011) Kauffman’s® Integri-Hoof  is the number 1 recommended hoof supplement by Horse JournalTM and the only nutritional product to make their top ten products for 2009.  Integri-Hoof is proven effective against chipping, splitting, thin soles, flares, thin walls, poor growth and quarter cracks. Kauffman’s Animal Health is offering ‘instant coupons’ and ‘free shipping’ on all Integri-Hoof orders placed online, as well as even more significant discounts at participating dealer locations throughout the month of May.

Integri-Hoof is a premium pelleted protein, vitamin, mineral and amino acid supplement formulated to support the ‘integrity’ of healthy hooves; the foundation of any equine athlete.  Manufactured in a state-of-the-art, climate-controlled facility using only the highest quality ingredients guarantees a premium product.

Integri-Hoof features all of the key nutrients, in the proper amounts and ratios, required to support development and maintenance of strong, healthy hooves.

In addition to the traditional proven ingredients found in hoof supplements (biotin, methionine, lysine, etc.), Integri-Hoof has been balanced for micro-minerals, especially copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) with minimal interference from iron (Fe) and manganese (Mn).

The yeast culture component has been scientifically shown to support enhanced digestion and digestive efficiency, particularly the digestibility of important macro- and micro-minerals (Ca, P, Cu, Zn and Mg), integral to healthy bones and hooves.

Methionine and Cystine are the two sulfur-containing essential amino acids.  As such, they contribute sulfur for crosslinking of other proteins, especially those necessary for optimal hoof growth.

Glycine is the smallest of the 20 amino acids commonly found in proteins, and due to its unique non-chiral structure, it makes up approximately 35% of collagen, the most abundant protein in mammals.  Collagen is integral to the structural integrity, growth and development of bones, joints and hooves.

Integri-Hoof is available in four convenient sizes:  5.625 lb pail (30 day supply for one horse) 18.75 lb. pail (100 day supply for one horse), 28.125 lb. pail (150 day supply for one horse), and 50 lb. bag (66 day supply for four horses).
