Complete Equine Senior® feed for horses
Purina's horse nutrition scientists and veterinarians are constantly exploring new ways to meet the unique needs of ageing horse and enable your older horse to lead a long, healthful living. The Purina® equine Senior horse feed has been researched at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center for over 20 years. This formula combines all the advantages of the proven and tested Genuine Senior® horse feed with the latest findings in horse research.
Begin with the quantities indicated for the horse's load and life style. If the horse is observed for a long while, the amount of food can be raised or lowered by 10% to achieve the required state of the horse's conformation and the required load. If the horse is susceptible to carbohydrate, please contact a vet or dietician.
You can feed good meadow or grass with Equine Senior® horse feed. Ensure that your horse is free of tooth decay and can efficiently bite and use the feed. Decrease the amount of Equine Senior horse feed by 1.0 lbs per 1.5 to 2.0 lbs of horse-feed.
Feed no less than 0.6 lbs per 100 lbs of Equine Senior horse feed per diet when supplemented with hey to cover the minimal dietary needs for proteins, vitamin and mineral supplements. The feed rate varies according to height, aging, temperament, condition, weather and activities. Feeds regularly - at least twice a diurnal - with three feeds a diurnal.
Leave the horse in a pristine stance in a trough with a large floor at regular or lower level.
The feed change should take place stepwise over a 7 to 10 week time. Feed changes should not be more than 1.0 pounds per horse per night. Give your horse entrance to brine. Examine the horse's mouth every year and see your vet regularly.
Perform the feed exchange step by step over a 7 to 10 week time. The new fodder should be mixed with the old fodder by progressively adding more of the new fodder while reducing the same amount of the old fodder. Feed changes should not be more than 1 lb per horse per day.
Avoid feeding mouldy or insect-infested feed to pets, as this can lead to disease, poor nutrition or dead.
