I would have to order it online because I don't think anywhere close to me carries it.
So the cost with shipping is $51.95 and if I assume 60 half scoops are in one bucket the per-serving cost is 87¢.
The stuff that I'm trying now is $40.95 for an 80-scoop container, which breaks down to 51¢ per scoop. Each scoop/serving contains 20mg of Biotin, which is 30mg less than a half-scoop serving of the Vital Hoof, but it also contains other good stuff like the food-grade flax seed meal.
I'll email my farrier and see what she thinks about switching the next time I run out of hoof supp. As usual I'm of two minds about it, LOL. On one hand, I want him to have the healthiest hooves possible, and 50mg of biotin surely is a large amount and would undoubtedly help toward that goal. On the other hand, if 20mg will do the trick and costs less, wouldn't it be nice for me to know?
