Product Review: Oralx Cacoliv

Scone Equine Hospital - Tuesday, November 21, 2017
Product Review: Oralx Cacoliv

CACOLIV contains iron and copper, with chelated minerals for fast absorption. These minerals (iron, copper, zinc and manganese) can assist in maintaining red blood cells and haemoglobin, as well as being essential for nervous system function and protein metabolism. The folic acid in CACOLIV is a hematopoietic vitamin which can also play an important role in the maintenance of red blood cells.

The copper and cobalt in CACOLIV can help darken a horse’s coat, producing an iridescent sheen difficult to achieve with an ordinary supplement. CACOLIV may be used as an aid for good coat colour all year round, but especially when horses shed their winter coats.

CACOLIV is a haematinic supplement offering an alternative to B-complex vitamins which may cause a hyperactive reaction in some horses. It also provides a replacement for injectable iron which can exacerbate bleeding if administered too close to strenuous work.

Fast becoming a popular supplement in yearling preparations, this product may be used weekly as a general tonic.
