I Need Help Putting Weight On My Arabian


“I have a 25 year old Arabian and she’s getting thin in withers and hips what supplements should I give her to fill her out? Thanks!”

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

Sorry to hear about your mare. I would recommend putting her on super weight gain. It provides your mare with a fat and protein like other weight gain supplements. However, in addition contains a vitamin/mineral supplement and probiotics, prebiotics and live yeast cultures (for gut health). This will address other issues that other weight gain supplements don’t address.

This should help to fill her back out.

Good luck and thank you for taking great care of your mare.
