This ultra low iron, equine, horse feed balancer has been formulated for superior support horses, ponies and donkeys with EMS and prone to laminitis. Supports healthy hoof laminae using data obtained from scientific analysis of our many samples of forage. It contains only the commonly deficient minerals, vitamins and amino acids found to be needed to help support horses who need to maintain a strong hoof wall connection.
Designed for optimum health, our formula provides excellent support of strong laminae in horses. Forageplus Laminae-Plus is particularly safe to feed to horses prone to laminitis being very low in sugar and starch and containing no fillers and only the highest purity minerals and vitamins to aid a strong immune and metabolic system.
In addition we have formulated a laminitis horse feed balancer so that it includes high levels of vitamin E for antioxidant support, a probiotic and a toxin binder. We include vitamin A as horses prone to laminitis are often given straw or hay older than 1 year to control weight gain. This type of forage will be low in vitamin A. The minerals used are of a high quality to ensure against contamination with heavy metals and enable good absorption and the lowest iron formulation.
All Forageplus horse feed balancers are powders and are best carried in a high fibre, fast soak feed or chop of your choice.
Forageplus recommends the feeding of additional micronised linseed with this horse feed balancer as horses on a predominantly hay/haylage diet due to grass sensitivity may be short of some essential fatty acids. This will ensure good levels of the essential fat omega 3 to maintain and support excellent health, strong hooves and work with the bodies natural anti-inflammatory processes.
Metabolic horses are often short of vital nutrients in the diet due to needing careful management of grass intake and weight issues.
