Re: Reoccurring Hoof Abscess Help

Eleanor Kellon, VMD

At her age I doubt she could chew split peas well. They're like little rocks. Normal tooth wear over time decreases force and efficiency of chewing. This is a good, safe, soy protein isolate that is also on sale . A pound of flax by weight is 4 cups by volume. If you could get her to eat 2 cups of flax and 2 oz of the soy protein isolate that would be a nice boost. I would also add 5 grams (2 tsp) of methionine which is critical for hoof health.
