Hello, I am inquiring about your product for a horse who ties up, and as well is allergic to any type of soy product. What can I do for this type of horse?

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

Thank you for your question. Our products would address a selenium and vitamin E deficiency that for very often linked to horses tying up.

I would recommend one of two products. The first product that I would recommend is Horse Guard. It is a vitamin-mineral with 3 mg of organic selenium and probiotics.

The product that we feed all of our horses is Trifecta. It contains the vitamin-mineral supplement of horse guard along with a complete gut, hoof, and joint supplement.

Both of these products contain no soy and would help your horse out tremendously.
