About Pavo Care4Life

Pavo Care4Life contains everything that we can think of from a feeding viewpoint to support your horse’s health. This special feed includes fibre-rich raw ingredients, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, yeast, 11 different types of herbs plus vitamins and chelated minerals. These ingredients play a role in the cleansing processes of the body and enable removal of waste products.

As important as these ingredients are, it is also just as important as to what ingredients a feed does not contain! Care4Life does not contain any substances that might unnecessarily burden the horses system. For example, the combined sugar and starch content is only 8%. It does not contain any wheat, wheat by-products, molasses, gluten or oats.
