ELECTROLYTE GOLD Premium Electrolyte Supplement ELECTROLYTE GOLD is a scientifically formulated product containing essential electrolytes and vitamins in an amino acid and glucose base. Horses cool their bodies by sweating in large amounts and this results in a loss of electrolytes. Packed in convenient single feeding sachets, ELECTROLYTE GOLD will “refresh” horses in training. The addition of high levels of the antioxidant Vitamins E (1000iu) and C (750mg) will also protect muscle tissue by eliminating ‘free radicals’, noxious by products of exercise. Glycine and Glucose improve the rate of absorption of electrolytes in the gastrointestinal tract. Instructions for Proper Use: Add one 1.76oz. packet to the normal feed ration per day for horses after exercise. Ingredients: Dextrose, Salt, Potassium Chloride, Calcium Carbonate, Glycine, Vitamin E Supplement, Sodium Citrate, Ascorbic Acid, Magnesium Sulphate. Guaranteed Analysis: Glycine Calcium, min.

“As Farm Manager, attention to detail is vitally important when it comes to raising future stars. I have used Calphormin for many years as part of my program when managing the growth and development of young thoroughbreds.

Calphormin For Optimum Skeletal Development and Conformation The foundations for a horses’ future success can be laid down before it is even born. Ensuring the broodmare has the correct balance of macro-minerals, trace minerals, and amino acids to pass on to her new born, CALPHORMIN will give the young horse the best start it can get. Continuing to feed the young, rapidly growing horse CALPHORMIN will optimise its growth and bone development, in a correct and balanced way. Instructions for Proper Use: Mare in foal (months 9, 10, 11): Add 4 oz (approx. 120g) per day to a minimum of 2lbs of the normal finished feed. Lactating mare: Add 4 oz (approx. 120g) per day to a minimum of 2lbs of the normal finished feed. Young Stock: Add 2 oz (approx. 60g) per day to a minimum of 1lb of the normal finished feed. Yearling/ Two year old: Add 2 oz (approx. 60g) per day to a minimum of 1lb of the normal finished feed. 1 half scoop = approx. 2 oz (approx. 60g) 1 level scoop = approx. 4 oz (approx. 120g) Ingredients: Dicalcium Phosphate, Calcium Carbonate, Ground Extruded Whole Soyabeans, L-Lysine Monohydrochloride, Sodium Silico Aluminate, Lignin Sulfonate, Manganese Sulfate, Zinc Oxide, Copper Amino Acid Chelate.

CALPHORMIN has undergone significant trialing in broodmares to validate the efficiency of the formula. 38 foals from 5 different stud farms were x-rayed to establish the incidence of growth related problems in their hocks and patella (right and left) and fetlocks (right and left, front and back). The subsequent pregnancy of the mares of the same foals was monitored, but on this occasion CALPHORMIN was fed in addition to their normal diet (which remained unchanged). Consideration had also been given to the choice of stallions to ensure no genetic effect could compromise the results of the study. At a similar time of year the siblings of the second group of foals, born to the same dams, were also X-rayed according to the same protocol. The results showed a statistically significant and marked reduction in the prevalence of joint lesions (p<0.05).

Summary Nutritional imbalances have been recognised as one potential factor in the development of DOD in young, growing horses. CALPHORMIN helps to balance the diet with nutrients known to be critical to proper skeletal development. In developing horses, the major nutrients of concern are protein, energy, calcium, phosphorus, copper, zinc and lysine. Minimum requirements in horses for each of these nutrients have been published by the National Research Council (NRC, 1989); however, in some instances the optimum intake to sustain normal growth may be significantly higher. CALPHORMIN provides a supplemental source of all of these nutrients in a carefully balanced and palatable formulation which provides for the likely elevated requirements of these essential nutrients for optimum skeletal development, and production of sound and robust athletic horses.

GASTROFOS Trial Results in Horses Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS) is a debilitating condition which has been increasingly recognized in recent years as a reason for poor performance in competition horses. Up to 93% of Racehorses and 60% of Sports horses have been found to suffer from ulceration after endoscopic examination. During 2006 a study was undertaken to assess the benefits of feeding GASTROFOS in a National Hunt Thoroughbred training yard. Gastroscopic examination was performed on 17 horses after a fasting period of 20 hours, and water was withheld for 4 hours prior to scoping. The horses were then divided into 3 groups; Clear (ulcer score 0), Mild to Moderate (ulcer score 1-2), and Severe (ulcer score 3-4.) 11 horses had their normal rations supplemented with GASTROFOS, while 6 horses with a similar range of ulcer scores were retained as a negative control.

After 6 weeks

After the trial period of 6 weeks the entire sample size of 17 horses were re-scoped and evidence of improvement/deterioration was recorded. The 11 horses which had their feed supplemented saw a reduction in average ulcer score from 1.82 to 0.91, a reduction of 50%. The average ulcer score for the 6 negative controls increased from 1.5 to 1.66, an increase of 11%. In the group of horses with mild to moderate ulcer scores the results were even more convincing with the 4 negative controlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ulcer score increasing by 40% and the 7 horses with mild to moderate ulceration fed GASTROFOS recording a reduction in average score of 70%. From the results of the study it can be concluded that GASTROFOS is a useful nutritional support for horses which are suffering from EGUS, and that the benefits of feeding are particularly marked where the horse is suffering from mild to moderate ulceration.
