Where can i get a biotin supplement?

Is it possible to get just biotin in a supplement? My horse gets barely any biotin and B12 in his diet and am looking to add another supplement to his diet. The only supplement I can find with adequate biotin in it, also has a ton of other minerals that he doesn't need. I am looking for something that is pretty much just biotin, and with trace amounts of other nutrients.

Valley Vet has a few biotin only supplements. What supplements does your horse get now?

Thank you. I will check them out.
Right now he's on blue seal carb guard, min a vite, vitamin E capsules, and flaxseed, as well as mixed hay.
He was only on the grain and hay, but I've been having lots of feet issues and traced it back to his diet. Turns out he was extremely deficient in his diet on a bunch of vitamins and minerals as our hay is crappy in this area. The main ones being biotin, selenium, vitamin E, copper, iron, vitamin D, and calcium. After doing many calculations, I managed to come up with a diet that has everything he needs in roughly the right proportions, expect I'm missing biotin and B12.

Try something like BiotinPlus. If you want the Biotin to work, you need to add zinc along with it.

You can drive yourself nuts adding supplements like crazy, or you can go with one good all around nutritional supplement and something for hooves. BiotinPlus worked wonders on our OTTB's thin, shelly hoof walls.

I'm not a complete idiot--there are parts missing!

What you have become is the price you paid to get what you used to want.
