Feeding recommendations are based on average daily requirements for horses of different body weights. Actual feeding rates required to adequately maintain good condition of individual horses will be affected by individual metabolism and progression rate of aging processes. Therefore, feeding rates may need to be gradually adjusted in some horses according to body condition. Aging horses unable to maintain adequate body condition when being fed the recommended amount of Equine Senior® horse feed should be examined by a veterinarian to determine the presence of potential health issues. Do not feed more than 0.8 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight in one meal. Equine Senior® can be blended with other feeds or oats for a short time while transitioning your horse to Equine Senior®, but for the long term, Equine Senior should not be mixed with oats or other grains because these grains will dilute the nutritional balance of Equine Senior® and are more difficult for the aging horse to chew and digest. Do not feed free choice. Important Considerations:
  • Do not feed free-choice.
  • Feed at regular times (at least twice daily). When feeding rates exceed 1% of body weight, three daily feedings are preferred.
  • Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days.
  • Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed one pound per day for each horse.
  • Have plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times.
  • Prevent the rapid eating by the horse of any feed stuffs.
  • Store feed in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects.
  • Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness or death.
  • This product to be fed to the animal species as directed on the label.
  • In addition to nutritional care and consultation, be sure to make regular veterinary checkups and farrier appointments part of your horse wellness program.
