Overview

Equine Mineral Supplement

Now in pellets!  The same great formula as the powder!

If getting and maintaining healthy hooves and a rich lustrous coat is particularly important for your horse, Poly Zinc can provide Zinc your horse needs for good hoof and coat health. 

In addition to supporting skin and hoof quality, Poly Zinc also promotes healthy immune and antioxidant function in horses with dietary deficiency of Zinc and/or trace mineral imbalances.  Recommended minimum trial period is two weeks of regular use. 

Zinc is one of the most common deficiencies in horses. 

In addition to the levels of Zinc often being too low in the diet, other factors, such as high iron intake, make the situation worse by interfering with absorption.

Uckele’s proprietary polysaccharide coating allows Poly Zinc to be released at the most effective site of absorption, the small intestine, protecting it from mineral interactions until it reaches the absorption site where the coating is digested off, so Zinc will be released and absorbed at the highest level.

While other vitamin or mineral deficiencies may not be easily visible, issues with Zinc levels often present in ways that are readily seen.

A definite sign of Zinc deficiency is bleaching of the coat and red ends on black manes and tails. This is typically blamed on sun exposure, which is true, but horses with adequate levels of melanin, the pigment that gives skin and hair its color, will not undergo these changes.  Melanin also protects against UV radiation and chemical damage.  Zinc, in combination with Copper, supports the production of melanin in darkly colored manes and coats.

Hoof quality also suffers with Copper and Zinc deficiency. Poor hoof quality despite good health care, such as brittle, flaking hoof walls, thrush, etc., may indicate a Zinc deficiency.

Zinc deficiencies have been linked to:

  • poor coat
  • mouth ulcers
  • flaky skin
  • poor hoof quality
  • poor fertility
  • low immunity
  • predisposition to skin infections
  • ongoing thrush
  • abscesses

Liver biopsy is the only definitive way to diagnose Zinc deficiency, but poor hoof quality, bleached coats and flaking skin are common outward signs.  Hay analyses from across the United States confirm that Zinc is the most common trace mineral deficiency. Analysis of your own hay can confirm this.
