Could you please tell me the amounts of crude protein, fat, and fiber in Horse Guard?

Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:

A 2 ounce dose of Horse Guard is 12% Crude Protein, 3.5% Crude Fat, and 10% Crude Fiber. It is important to remember, however, when considering the whole diet of a horse that 2 ounces is a very small amount. So, when formulating a ration the crude protein, fat, and fiber are minute amounts and will hardly affect the protein, fat, and fiber levels of the total ration.
