Features & Benefits
†Based on 40g feed rate.

This product contains Methylsulfonylmethane, or MSM. As of 01.09.22 the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) has announced that, with immediate effect, this is a banned substance in horses racing under BHA rules. Current advice is to withdraw supplements containing MSM 24 clear hours prior to racing. Further information on residue levels is available here Minor changes to Rules of Racing | August 2022 – The British Horseracing Authority. This does not currently affect horses competing under FEI rules but Nettex will update guidance here should that change.

I’ve been using this on my mare for about a month now and it’s the best hoof supplement Ive had her on. She came to me with pretty bad feet and now they look almost back to normal. Only supplement that’s worked. 100% recommend!!
Been feeding my 8 year old tb this supplement for around 4 months now and it’s been an absolute game changer, he’s always had softer hooves and without fail pulled shoes within the time periods of being shod but since we began this supplement i’ve seen huge improvement in the condition of his hooves.
