“My draft mare had an episode last night where she was unable to move her right front leg at all! I was a little disturbing for me so I started researching again the needed levels of Vitamin E , selenium magnesium oxide. It’s overwhelming!! Is Horse Guard supplying her with what she needs in those areas? The bag says nutrient per # but I am not feeding her a pound of this stuff daily? Help!!”
Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
Sorry to hear about your mare. Horse Guard is providing her all the organic selenium and Vitamin E that she needs. In 2 ounces, it provides 3 mg of organic selenium. So, depending on how big she is you would adjust the dose accordingly. So, if she weighs 1500 lbs feed her a scoop and a half. FDA requires us to list ingredients per lb. If I can answer any more questions just let me know.
