Electrolytes are specially formulated for your horses’ hydration health, not just in the summer hot weather, but in the cold winter months as well. Lower sugar formula for insulin resistant horses, with a combination of salt and trace minerals, Electrolytes are designed to replenish ions lost in sweat during exercise or other strenuous activity. Electrolytes also contain magnesium and calcium. These salts and minerals are blended to more closely mimic the ions lost in sweat.
Why are Electrolytes needed?
The need for electrolytes in hot weather is hardly new. By now pretty much everyone should know that horses (and humans) need to replace the salts that are lost in sweat. Failure to do so can mean ill health for your horses including muscle fasciculation and weakness, plus incoordination. Sweat does not only contain sodium, it also consists of potassium, calcium, and small amounts of magnesium. If your horses’ sweating goes on for a long time, appreciable amounts of these salts can be lost. It is important in hot humid weather to make sure that your horse has access not only to salt, but to the mix of minerals that can be sweated out.
What affects do using Electrolytes have?
Horses perform better and feel better if their electrolyte needs are met. Electrolytes also encourage drinking. From weather changes to minor illnesses and trailering stress, there are many reasons for your horse to stop drinking. Proper hydration is the first line of defense against a minor problem turning into a major one.
What is the best direction for use?
Feed 45g per day. Electrolytes can be added to feed or drinking water as preferred. Apple, Banana, Fruit Punch, Grape, and Strawberry flavoring for palatability convenience. Horses consuming electrolytes should be provided unlimited access to fresh, clean drinking water.
