    The active ingredient in BoneKare™ is "Quinaquanone®" a water soluble, bio-available form of Vitamin K.

     

    Vitamin K has a critical effect on the function of Osteocalcin, the bone protein that binds the mineral and protein in bone together. Without sufficient Vitamin K the binding process is incomplete and low density or defective bone and cartilage are produced.

     

    Vitamin K is naturally available in fresh, growing green pasture but it is highly unstable, being degraded by UV light, wiltering or "wintering off".

    Horses that do not have constant access to high quality pasture are likely to be deficient in Vitamin K, leading to a reduction in bone density and bone strength.

     

    • Horses removed from Vitamin K rich pasture and brought into a box/yard regime have demonstrated a reduction in bone density within 7-10 days.
    • There is an established correlation between bone density and the incidence of OCD's and DOD's in yearlings and DMD (shinsoreness) in 2 year olds.
    • BoneKare™ is the first European product to provide a stable, bio-available form of Vitamin K.

     

    When to feed BoneKare

    Starting with the broodmares

    The development of a healthy bone structure begins during pregnancy. When the fetus receives the right nutrition during gestation it has the best start to becoming a healthy, strong horse.

     

    From weanlings to young sport horses

    By feeding BoneKare™ as a prophylaxis, there is a greater certainty that the horse will not develop relevant radiographic changes. This is very important for stabled horses that don’t have constant access to green pasture.

     

    BoneKare™ may help when bone disorders already exist. During the growth phase up until approximately the 3rd to 4th year these changes may be improved.

    

    • Improvement in bone density
    • Developmental Orthopedic Disease (DOD) includes all bones, growth cartilage and tendon abnormalities
    • Osteochondrosis (OC) - bone and cartilage disease
    • Dorsel metacarpal disease (DMD) - disease of the 3rd Metacarpalbone
    • Osteoporosis
    • Osteoarthritis

     

    Bone regeneration after surgery

    BoneKare™ may help to rebuild the affected area after arthroscopic surgery (chip removal).

     

    Keeping older horses "fit"

    Although the bone regeneration process is significantly reduced after the 3rd to 4th year of age, it may be possible through the supplementation of Bonekare™ that the progressive process of the disease is slowed down or even prevented.
