Feeding My Horses with IR and Cushings
“Lucas, my 9 year old TWH is insulin resistant. He is on Thyro-L to drop his sugar levels, and on a restricted 5 lbs Grass Hay, 10 lbs Bluegrass straw per day. Is there is any added risk of laminitis or founder when we switch from SmartPak to horse guard?
And Ray, our 29 year old, is Cushings. So far, God Bless, he is not laminitic – same question. Safe for insulin compromised/laminitic potential horses?”
Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
There are no added carbohydrates or sugars in our products so they are safe for insulin resistant and laminitic horses, so Lucas and Ray should do great on our products.
