Description

Science Supplements SafeSalt for horses.

WHAT'S DIFFERENT ABOUT SAFESALT?
Whilst salt and electrolytes can be added to the feed, horses often find these unpalatable and their granular nature means that it is easy for fussy horses to leave them at the bottom of the feed manger. There is also evidence that ordinary salt can cause or worsen gastric ulcers in horses. SafeSalt is a unique formulation that provides a palatable source of sodium and chloride and helps overcome these potential palatability problems.


WHAT?
Exactly as the name suggests: Salt that is safe for your horse and his stomach. A unique electrolyte (NaCl; sodium and chloride) to overcome problems with palatability, gastric upset and gastric ulceration. Individual grains of salt are coated in special oil which will not dissolve in the mouth or stomach, but in the small intestine where electrolyte uptake is optimal.

WHY?
Salt (sodium chloride, chemical formula NaCl) is a key nutrient required for nerve and muscle function, maintenance of normal hydration and digestive, kidney, lung and heart function. Forage is rich in potassium and chloride and in some cases (e.g. alfalfa) calcium. The most common electrolyte in which horses are deficient is sodium (Na) and most horses need supplemental salt. Horses in work, competing and racing require extra electrolytes to replace those lost in sweat, faeces and urine, and sub-optimal electrolyte intake can lead to muscle problems and poor performance.

WHEN?
SafeSalt should be given daily in feed to horses in training. SafeSalt is an ideal alternative to ordinary salt or electrolytes for horses who go off their feed during hard work.

HOW?
Mix in with feed - Electrolytes should be given regularly, not just during competition, as they maintain appetite and stimulate drinking. Follow the detailed feeding instructions on the side of the tub as dosage can vary according to the weather and level of training.

AND?
Tested to be free from the prohibited substances caffeine, theobromine, hyoscine, hordenine, morphine and atropine - Does not contravene FEI rules or rules of racing - Scoop included.
