Zinc is the all-rounder among the trace elements. It plays an important role in the function of cell metabolism, making it indispensable for a multitude of processes in the body. It contributes to the maintenance of skin and coat, bones and claws. Zinc also promotes the healing process after injuries. Furthermore, it strengthens the immune system.

Since zinc cannot be produced by the body itself, it is important to give the animal a sufficient amount in the form of suitable feed. Not all feeds contain a sufficient amount of zinc and especially in case of skin problems the need is increased, so that a supplement is recommended.
