A Supplement for Older Horse

Question and Anwser


Can you recommend a supplement to keep my 22 year old gelding feeling energetic and  good?”

Answer from Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Dr. Kelsey Johnson Nonella:

I would recommend feeding your gelding Trifecta. It will provide him a vitamin/mineral supplement, gut support, hoof and hair supplement, and joint supplement all in one dose. The vitamin/mineral supplement is crucial for optimal overall health in your gelding. The prebiotics and probiotics will help to ensure his gastrointestinal tract well. As horses getting older they start losing their ability to digest as well. Biotin will help his feet to stay strong and his coat looking good. Finally, the joint support includes 5000 mg of glucosamine and MSM, as well as 100 mg of hyaluronic acid. These potent levels of these ingredients will help him to keep feeling young.


I hope this helps. If I can answer any other questions, I would be more than happy to. Thank you for taking good care of your gelding.
