The horse liver is an organ that is usually described as part of the digestive system but its functions extend far beyond that. It is estimated that the equine liver performs in the neighbourhood of 500 distinct functions.

The liver is classified as both an organ and a gland and is the largest internal organ. It is also the only tissue that has any significant ability to regenerate itself.

Basic nutrition matched to the grass, hay or haylage the horse eats must be the first part tackled to develop and maintain a robust and healthy liver, we provide horse owners with horse liver supplements and horse liver products, that help to support and maintain the horse liver health, and minimise liver damage in horses.

Copper is commonly at poor levels in grass and hay and is impacted by high levels of iron and manganeses in many forages. It is worth realising that strict mineral balancing is a possible path to liver health. Reducing the exposure to high iron in the diet by raising anti-oxidant minerals copper and zinc will support healthy liver function.  

A forage analysis is usually very helpful in determining the amount of copper and zinc needed to correct high exposure to the antagonist mineral iron.
