Questions & Answers

7 Customer Questions

What are the feeding directions? Will this help with a horse suffering with severe laminitis?
Answer by ChewyFeb 14, 2022
In general, it is recommended to feed as a topdress, 6 ounces (0.37 lbs) or 3 level scoops per day. There are many factors that contribute to a horse with severe laminitis. The nutrients in the tough as nails provide amino acids and biotin for hoof growth and support, anti-inflammatory support, and hoof structure repair and can help support this affliction. The overall diet should be assessed as well to further support the horse as this will not cure a horse with chronic or diet related laminitis. We always recommend consulting with your veterinarian to help determine if this supplement would be appropriate for your individual horse.

my mares hoofs have started seeming sore on her fronts. will this help with soreness?
Answer by ChewyAug 30, 2021
This pelleted supplement provides essential nutrients including biotin, calcium and iodine for strong and healthy hooves. Great for horses with poor hoof quality, those prone to fungal infections and for the recovery of healthy horses after exercise. Biotin has been shown to improve hoof health with long-term use.

How many ounces is in one scoop? Have different size/weight of horses. Need to adjust accordingly. Thanks.
Answer by ChewyDec 16, 2021
Each scoop is approximately 2 ounces.

Can this be used for dogs to strengthen their nails? My dogs nails rip a lot from exercise.
Answer by ChewyJul 22, 2020
This supplement is intended for horses only.

Good Hoof Supplement

I put one of my horses on this supplement about 6 months ago. The blacksmith keeps telling me his feet look great each time he shoes him. This horse has been through a bad case of white line disease has had thin soles. I also put Keratex hoof hardener on the outside of his hoof (but not the sole per blacksmith instructions). This horse also eats it right up. Well worth it!

Hoof grower!

I have a mare with soft hooves. After her last trim she got too sore to re-shoe. I started her on Tribute Tough as Nails and in 2 wks. I noticed a big difference while watching her walk across pasture. She can now cross driveway without a limp.

Highly Recommend

I had a mare that was super thin soled and required shoes year round. after a couple weeks on his supplement, i pulled her shoes and she was sound. She has been on it for about 6 months and the farrier has said she will not need shoes. She has grown a substantial amount of sole and is sound to the hoof testers.

Highly Recommend!!

Fantastic supplement! My vet recommended and my horse has been on it for several months and you can see the visibly healthier grow line on his feet as well as can tell how nice the new hoof is. Lasts a long time and so happy with the quality of his feet.

Nothing better!

I've tried other hood supplements, and in my opinion this is the best on the market. I've been using it for a few months now, and the improvement already is just amazing! We've gone from hardly being able to walk on rocks or hard ground, to walking over it with no problem! Mine are OTTB's with typical bad feet, and I'm pleased to be able to get rid of the shoes and go barefoot finally. Highly recommend this product!

Wonderful product but.......

Absolutely love this product but had to discontinue due to the molasses. Work great on my one horse that has no sensitivity to molasses. Feet improved 100% within a very short time and even built top Line! However, for my horses that have insulin resistance and crushings it had the opposite effect. Would purchase it again if it was molasses free. If you have an average horse or competitive horse with no problems this is a great product and I would recommend it for those horses.

This stuff is amazing. It puts other hoof supplements to shame. Well worth the cost.
