Supplementing horses with calcium from organic, bioavailable sources has shown to assist in the development and maintenance of a sound skeletal system; it also helps prevent bone demineralisation that would otherwise lead to lameness, osteoporosis and Big Head.
In addition to chelated calcium, EQUICAL also contains kale, which is high in Vitamins A and K and beneficial in bone building.
In traditional herbal medicine, celery seed & rosemary are traditionally used to ease symtoms associated with inflammation, nettle for osteoarthritis, sage and aloe vera for digestion, and yeast as a probiotic.
Analysis (per kg)
30gm per 500kg of body weight per day with feed for horses grazing on high oxalate pastures and other horses showing signs of calcium deficiency, or as long as signs persist.
One level scoop (included) = 50gm - 500kg body weight = 3/4 scoop.
A loading dose of double the above should be given for 2 weeks.
Note: Horses on feeds with premixes added or on high calcium forage generally do not need additional supplementation.
