WellHorse Veteran is supported by 50 years of scientific research into what individual horses and ponies require and is formulated to meet the demands of the older horse. It contains every important nutrient your veteran horse requires and meets the NRC (National Research Council) and BASF (Animal Nutrition) recommendations for vitamins, microminerals, and macrominerals. WellHorse Veteran also provides a high-quality source of Glucosamine and MSM to help support joints, increased levels of Vitamin E and C to aid tissue, respiratory, and muscle function, and an innovative protected live yeast and a mycotoxin binder to support a healthy GI tract.
Horses' nutritional requirements change as they age and WellHorse Veteran has been formulated to safely satisfy their specific needs. With advanced age, increased exposure of oxidative damage puts older horses at risk of loss of tissue integrity, slow healing, and cancerous tissue development. Thus, higher levels of antioxidants Vitamin C and Vitamin E are needed in the older horse to help maintain tissues. In particular, joint damage is more common in the older horse, so we include glucosamine for its proven joint protection and MSM for anti-inflammatory support. With advanced age, it is common for horses to become less adept at efficient digestion and absorption of feeds for various reasons, leading to less uptake of nutrients and loss of proper fecal consistency. This is why we include live protected yeast to help increase fiber digestion and prebiotics that support the immune function of the GI tract, bind mycotoxins, and improve fecal consistency/reduce water loss in feces.
Perfect for the veteran horse on a forage only diet, otherwise restricted diet, to supplement lower quality feeds, or who have difficulty gaining or keeping weight or with digestive issues. Also a good option for non-veteran horses who would benefit from higher levels of antioxidants, joint support, and GI tract support (such as younger horses in training or light-moderate work).
