Senior Lite Feed Balancer is designed for elderly horses that are prone to weight gain. It combines the benefits of a low-calorie feed balancer and a joint supplement, in a highly cost-effective way. Senior Lite Feed Balancer is formulated without cereal grains and provides only low levels of sugar and starch. It is important to keep the starch intake of elderly horses low when fibre intake is compromised, in order to maintain healthy hindgut function and avoid loose droppings.
Senior Lite Feed Balancer includes the scientifically recommended rate of glucosamine in a daily quantity of feed to help maintain mobility. This rate is 10 grams of glucosamine/500kg horse/day.
Senior Lite Feed Balancer is a very palatable ‘Non-Heating’ feed that contains several supplements that provide the levels of micronutrients and digestive aids normally only found in high quality specialised supplements. When Senior Lite Feed Balancer is fed there is therefore no need to add any further supplements.
Feeding Senior Lite Feed Balancer will not promote weight gain when fed as part of a calorie-controlled diet.
Senior Lite Feed Balancer contains yeast probiotics to support healthy digestion. The probiotics are particularly beneficial for elderly horses suffering from stress e.g. during changes in routine, given less than ideal turnout time, losing a companion, recovering from illness, after worming and during or after a course of antibiotics.
