Equine Senior Updated
This month, Purina relaunched their Equine Senior and Equine Senior Active products. Here are some benefits of feeding your senior horse Purina:
No. 1 Veterinarian recommended senior horse feed
Four out of five Equine Veterinarians recommend Purina’s Equine Senior® horse feed to their clients with senior horses, according to an independent study conducted
in November 2012.
Easy to chew
Easy-soak™ pellet technology creates a mash in 5 minutes with warm water,* breaking down the pellet quickly to make it easy to chew and swallow for horses with dental problems or missing teeth.
*Add 5 quarts warm water (100° F) to every 6 pounds of feed. Soaking time will vary depending on water temperature.
Complete feed with quality hay built in helps senior horses get the fiber they need when dental problems or missing teeth prevent them from eating forage.
Scientifically formulated with a blend of fiber sources including beet pulp and top quality hay to help maintain the senior horse’s body condition and support normal digestive function.
Supplies 100% of required vitamins and minerals
Designed to meet the specific nutritional needs of senior horses to support immune function and overall health.**
**When fed as directed, with free-choice or added salt, based on Nutrient Requirements of Horses Sixth Revised Edition – 2007, published by the National Research Council
Highly palatable with less sugar
Instead of using straight cane molasses which is higher in sugar, Purina® Equine Senior® horse feed contains a unique blend of molasses and soy oil for a higher fat molasses that encourages optimal intake.
Controlled starch and sugar
Formulated to provide a diet lower in nonstructural carbohydrates that may be suitable for aging horses with carbohydrate sensitivities.
Contains Vitamin C and Vitamin E to provide additional support for a healthy immune system.
