Horses

Can vitamin E deficiency be an issue?
Can vitamin E deficiency be an issue?

Vitamin E deficiencies in the diet of horses and greyhounds can lead to muscle cell degradation, weakness, poor stamina and in severe cases, muscle ‘tying up’ or cramping during or shortly after exercise. Vitamin E is also involved in the maintenance of male and female reproductive function. Vitamin E deficient diets have been associated with abortion, birth of still born and/or weak newborn puppies in dogs.

Do horses lose iron in sweat?
Do horses lose iron in sweat?

Horses that sweat heavily, such as harness horses during training, or horses trained under hot conditions or for prolonged periods lose iron in their sweat (23mg/L) and therefore, supplementary iron in the feed is recommended to maintain adequate red cell synthesis and replacement.

What makes Vitamin E important?
What makes Vitamin E important?

Vitamin E protects muscle cell membranes of the limbs and heart against damage by harmful compounds in the oxidation of fat. Vitamin E, in conjunction with the trace-element selenium, is vital for maintenance of muscle development and strength.

Why a Prebiotic?
Why a Prebiotic?

Prebiotics are food ingredients that reach the large intestine unaffected by the digestive process and feed the natural good bacteria within the gut helping them to grow and flourish. Prebiotics particularly resistant starch, lowers the pH, reduces ammonia, phenols and other potentially harmful compounds and helps to keep the digestive tract healthy.

Why a Probiotic?
Why a Probiotic?

Probiotics are live microbials which benefit the host animal by improving the intestinal microbial balance essential for a healthy digestive tract. Everyday use helps maintain a balanced digestive system, optimising digestion of feed and enhancing your animal’s health, naturally. These microbes are safe, non-toxic and residue free.

Why an Enzyme?
Why an Enzyme?

Many plant based feed ingredients contain substrates with Anti-Nutritional Factors (ANF’s) that reduce animal growth. Natuzyme multi-strain enzyme, improves the digestibility of these ANF’s by de-grading fibre, proteins, starch, energy and releasing phosphorous into feed to optimise digestion, maximise feed performance while fully capturing nutritional value in meat, egg or milk production.

Why should I use Ironvita Blood & Oxygen™?
Why should I use Ironvita Blood & Oxygen™?

Deficiency of dietary sources of folic acid, iron, copper or cobalt, combined with a demanding work program can lead to the deficiency anaemia complex, loss of appetite, infertility and abortion, and increased susceptibility to stress and disease.

Why should I use synthetic Vitamin E?
Why should I use synthetic Vitamin E?

The "natural" or fat-soluble forms of Vitamin E can be rapidly oxidised by exposure to air, and the rate of decomposition can be increased by exposure to heat, UV light, alkalis and heavy metal salts, such as iron mixed into the feed with the supplement.
