Vitamin E in Horse Guard


“Hello, On packaging it says per pound…..can I get the Vitamin E IU per serving and what type of source the vitamin E is? Also, possible to get the entire analysis per serving? I use 2oz per horse. I absolutely love your product and have used it for years. Used to use it in Oregon when I lived there and couldn’t get on shelves here in Utah, but was super happy when CAL Ranch started carrying it! I have a deficient horse and need to know per servings. Thank you for your help.”

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

Thank you for the question and comments. We love to hear when customers love our products as much as we do! We are family-owned business that takes great pride in our products.

In Horse Guard, there is 500 IU of synthetic Vitamin E per 2 oz. Due to regulations, we have to label nutrients per pound but you can easily calculated the mg or IU per 2 oz by the dividing the per by 8.

I hope this helps. Let me know if I can answer any more questions for you. Thank you for being such a loyal customer!

    I purchased a bag of horse guard today, it lists vitamin E at 8000 IU. Per pound. Has it been doubled? My last bag said 4000 IU per pound.
