VECTA Calcivite-D is a complete mineral supplement for horses; containing a carefully balanced formula of Calcium and Phosphorus; together with Vitamin D - the primary vitamin influencing the utilization of calcium and phosphorus. Calcivite
D also contains selected trace elements essential for improved overall wellbeing of horses.
Vitamin D... The Added Bonus
Vitamin D plays a vital role, and is an essential ingredient in a mineral supplement. Vitamin D is not only required for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus but also for regulation of the calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood.
A deficiency in Vitamin D, even in the presence of adequate calcium and phosphorus, can cause reduced bone strength,
swollen joints and stiffness of gait.
Daily supplementation with Calcivite D, with its high Vitamin D levels, ensures your horse will receive a finely balanced mineral
supplement, supplying all the elements necessary for healthy bone growth and formation.
Calcivite D... Essential to a Horse’s well-being
A horse’s mineral requirements are as essential as its need for food and water; and therefore deserves special attention. Irrespective of the diet supplied, mineral deficiencies are very common; whether in the racing stable or even the very best of stud pastures. Calcivite D has been specifically formulated to meet these needs.
Biotin is noted to be a component of healthy hoof growth and is involved in the synthesis of fatty acids and glucose in the body.
Minerals, A Vital Beginning
Bone abnormalities in foals can be traced back to inadequate development in the uterus. For example, if a mare fails to give her
foal the necessary nutrients during pregnancy, the results may be harmful.
Young horses growing quickly have the greatest demand for Calcivite D; but for the purpose of maintaining good healthy bone growth, it is beneficial for all horses to receive a daily dose of Calcivite D.
