Help your horse to stay sound with Vetrofen Healthy
We all want to enjoy our horses as much as possible – it’s the reason we keep them! Once you have a healthy, fit horse, it’s worth trying to keep them that way, and a little daily dietary support in key areas may be just the trick.
That’s where Vetrofen Healthy comes in.
Vetrofen Healthy is a natural, safe and effective horse supplement designed to give everyday support to your equine companion; and promote comfort and mobility in active or ageing horses.
Your horse’s body is designed to keep its internal composition well balanced. However, sometimes life gets in the way. Challenges such as exercise, being stabled, or the little stresses of everyday life mean that balance can be disrupted – which in turn impacts your horse’s overall health and wellbeing.
Fortunately, a daily equine supplement that provides extra dietary antioxidants will give the boost needed to restore that all important balance; and keep your horse happy and healthy!
Made from a tailored blend of natural ingredients, Vetrofen Healthy is created with your horse’s health in mind. Containing a special antioxidant formula called ABC-Flex, it is safe for daily use and comes with a whole host of equine health benefits.
The tailored blend of natural ingredients works in harmony to support equine function and flexibility; relieve inflammation; boost comfort and recovery; and promote your horse’s overall wellbeing and quality of life. Because a healthy horse is a happy horse!

Vetrofen Healthy is a proprietary blend of three tried and tested natural plant sources known for their effective antioxidant properties: Acacia Catechu, Boswellia, and Curcumin. Black pepper is added to aid absorption.
- Boswellia Serrata (also known as Indian Frankincense) has been used for centuries to support joint health. In horse joint supplements, it can support the body’s own natural inflammatory system; aid movement and mobility; and boost equine joint health and comfort.
- Curcumin (the star ingredient in Turmeric) to target equine joint stiffness and skin irritation, and for its antioxidant properties.
- Acacia Catechu has long been recognised by ayurvedic practitioners for its antioxidant properties. It can help to provide joint relief for horses, reduce stiffness, and improve mobility.
Free from Devil’s Claw, Safe to use with competition horses. If competing under FEI rules, the active compound in Devil’s Claw, Harpagoside, has now been moved on to the FEI controlled medication list for 2016. Vetrofen, which contains no prohibited substances, offers a safe alternative to any Devils Claw products.
What is Vetrofen Healthy and how is it given?
Vetrofen Healthy is a fine powder, which is administered orally and is best mixed with your horse’s feed. It is a horse joint supplement with Boswellia, Curcumin and Acacia Catechu, which works to provide joint care for horses; support equine comfort, mobility, and wellbeing; and help to keep your horse sound. Whether you’re looking for the best joint supplement for older horses or active equines, Vetrofen Healthy could be just the thing.
How does Vetrofen Healthy work?
Vetrofen Healthy approaches the ongoing support of equine comfort and mobility by uniquely addressing the supply of dietary antioxidants to the metabolic processes involved.
Vetrofen Healthy harnesses the power of specific plant phytochemicals – polyphenols, flavanols and triterpenes – from natural sources. Each works synergistically to provide support to key areas where antioxidant support is required on a daily basis – such as in a horse’s joints and muscles, and to the immune system.
How soon will my horse feel an effect from Vetrofen Healthy?
In the field professionals and Veterinarians have found that horses feel an effect within 5 – 10 days, while others may feel an effect in 10 – 15 days longer. For fast results, or for those in need, use a loading serve of Vetrofen Healthy for up to 10 days, or until a response is seen, followed by a maintenance serving.
What about side effects?
Great news: there are NO SIDE EFFECTS with Vetrofen Healthy! Vetrofen represents a whole new approach to managing your horse’s comfort and recovery by supporting the dietary balance of the metabolic processes involved in the body, rather than merely focusing on the symptoms. Safe, natural ingredients combined with their unique metabolic effects and potent antioxidant action are the foundations of Vetrofen Healthy. Vetrofen Healthy is free from banned substances and is safe to use on a long- and short-term basis.
What are Vetrofen Healthy’s key ingredients?
