Product Description

Details

A complete, high-calorie fibre feed containing the latest ingredients known to promote gut health including alfalfa.

Taking the latest ingredients known to promote gut health, including alfalfa grown in our own fields, Healthy Tummy is the ideal way to keep your horse healthy and happy.

Recent research suggests that once horses begin training their likelihood of developing gastric ulcers increases. 17-58% of competition and show horses in competitive work have ulcers and the most surprising results were that pleasure horses – 37-59% suffer from EGUS. While there are many possible causes, high concentrate diets and intense exercise have been identified as the trigger in many equines.

Feeding more fibre and reducing reliance on cereal based feeds can be beneficial and advice is that starch intake should be less than 2g per KG of bodyweight per day to reduce the risk of ulcers.

How to feed Healthy Tummy

For horses at rest or in light work:

Healthy Tummy is a nutritionally complete feed containing all the vitamins and minerals your horse or pony needs. There is no need to add any mix, cubes or supplements as long as you are feeding the recommended levels.

For horses in moderate and hard work:

Feeding a high fibre diet is essential should your horse be suffering or have had ulcers in the past.
