CAVALOR® ProGrow – Premium Line
Pelleted feed supplement for foals, young horses and brood mares
Indications for use:
During gestation, the mare’s body ensures that the important “building blocks” specifically designed for growth are produced. These substances are essential for the development and protection of the unborn foal. During lactation, the mare also transfers these substances to the foal. As a consequence, the growing foal can develop a strong locomotive system as Cavalor ProGrow contributes to a healthy immunity status.
For the production of these “building blocks” the horse’s body needs a complex array of nutritional elements, such as minerals and amino acids with a high biological value. If there is a deficit of these nutrients in the base ration or if less of these required nutrients are absorbed, fewer of the important “building blocks” will be produced. This may subsequently lead to reduced bone or joint development in the foal/young horse or a decrease in the mare’s body condition (depending on the period of the deficit). It is of major importance that both mare (during last three months of gestation and first three months of lactation) and foal receive these important “building blocks.” An adequate supply of these “building blocks” is critical during this period.
Cavalor ProGrow can also be used as a supplement for horses older than one year that need additional high-grade minerals.

Cavalor Arti Base can be safely used as a supplement for foals and young horses who appear to have swollen legs. Cavalor ProGrow may be used when there are indications that the overall growth of a healthy horse should be supported with additional nutrients.
Besides energy and vitamins, foals need various nutritional building blocks to support their growth such as, minerals and proteins (i.e. amino acids like lysine). The intake level of these nutrients is important, but the ratio in which they are fed is crucial. Cavalor ProGrow is specially designed to provide the needed nutritional support for foals, young horses and brood mares. Cavalor ProGrow contains eight different vitamins including vitamins A, B3, C, D3 and E. Together, these vitamins boost immunity, stimulate calcium and phosphate absorption for bone formation and help prevent muscular dystrophy among other benefits.
In some cases, yes. This will depend on the list of ingredients. Supplements rich in fat soluble vitamins such as, vitamins E, D3, A and K should to be administered as “directed on the label as overdosing can generate negative side effects. There is no risk of overdose when using supplements rich in water soluble vitamins such as B-vitamins. Cavalor supplements high in fat soluble vitamins: Cavalor NutriPlus, Cavalor Support and Cavalor ProGrow.
