Description

Senior Lite Feed Balancer is designed for elderly horses that are prone to weight gain. It combines the benefitsof a low-calorie feed balancer and a joint supplement, in a highly cost-effective way. Senior Lite Feed Balancer is formulated without cereal grains and provides only low levels of sugar and starch. It is important to keep the starch intake of elderly horses low when fibre intake is compromised, in order to maintain healthy hindgut function and avoid loose droppings.

Designed For:

  • Elderly horses

Features:

  • very palatable ‘Non-Heating’ feed that contains several supplements that provide the levels of micronutrients and digestive aids normally only found in high quality specialised supplements
  • no need to add any further supplements
  • will not promote weight gain when fed as part of a calorie-controlled diet
  • support healthy digestion
  • Maintains healthy joints
  • Maintains healthy lung tissue
  • Maintains healthy cells
  • Avoids speeding the ageing process
  • Maintain muscle function
  • Helps fibre digestibility
  • Maintains a healthy immune system
  • Improve hoof quality
  • Promotes a supple skin and a shiny coat
  • Compensate for decreased production in the hindgut when fibre intake is limited
  • Maintain strong bone
  • Helps relax behaviour
  • A considered level of protein to allow muscle repair and maintenance without promoting topline

Senior Lite Feed Balancer is available in 15kg sacks, which last a 500kg horse for 30 days or a 250kg pony for 60 days.

How much to feed?

Quantities to be fed

Most TopSpec Feed Balancers should be fed at a rate of 100g balancer/100kg bodyweight daily. The following table will help you to decide how much to feed to your horses or ponies. (As a guide a half-pint mug holds approximately 200g of any TopSpec Feed Balancer). Please refer to the sack or to TopSpec’s Multiple Award Winning Helpline for feeding rates of TopSpec Stud Feed Balancer and TopSpec Racing Feed Balancer as they are fed at higher rates.

Important points

  • As with all new feeds TopSpec products should always be introduced gradually over a period of four days, starting with approximately one quarter of the amount you intend to feed by day four. TopSpec feed balancers can be fed with forage alone or with your choice of straights/blends and/or compound feeds
  • The diet of sweating horses must be supplemented with additional salt, especially if feed intake is low. All horses should have access to a salt-lick 24/7 but common table salt should be added to the feed of sweating horses daily
  • Keep an eye on the horse’s condition as feeding TopSpec Feed Balancers with other hard feeds means over a period of 4-6 weeks you may need to reduce the other hard feed
  • In most cases do not add feed supplements within TopSpec Feed Balancers. Additives e.g. TopSpec Calmer, TopSpec 10:10 Joint Support, TopSpec Electrolytes can be added if required
  • We are frequently asked if garlic can be fed with TopSpec, the answer is yes, for any herb

Senior Lite Feed Balancer is available in 15kg sacks, which last a 500kg horse for 30 days or a 250kg pony for 60 days.
