What Would Help My Underweight Mare?
“I have a mare who is somewhere around 26/27. She’s foundered in the past and over the last month she’s lost a lot of weight. She’s on grass hay and the special blend pellets from Culver. The vet said her teeth don’t look that bad and she’s been dewormed. The vet said Horse Guard had something that should work for her. So what do you think? She’s 100 lbs under weight!”
Answer by Ph.D. Equine Nutritionist, Dr. Kelsey Johnson Nonella:
Sorry to hear about your mare. I would definitely recommend putting her on Super Weight Gain.
It not only has cool energy fat and protein (which will help because she shouldn’t receive feeds high in starch), it also has a complete vitamin and mineral supplement. In addition, it has prebiotics and probiotics to help her with any gastrointestinal issues she may be having.
Hope this helps!
