WellSolve W/C Horse Feed

Purina® WellSolve W/C Horse Feed

Purina® WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed

Purina® WellSolve W/C Horse Feed manages caloric intake while satisfying the horse. If it were as simple as reducing calories, then cutting back on what you normally feed would solve your horse’s weight problem, right? But as everyone knows, it’s not quite that simple.

For instance, what happens when a hungry horse wolfs down his meager portion only to watch his stable mates continue to eat? And if you cut back on grazing time, how can you be sure your horse is still getting the right vitamins, minerals, and needed fiber? That’s where Purina WellSolve W/C Horse Feed can help.

Directions

Feeding Directions with Hay or Pasture Start with the amounts given for the weight and class of the horse. After observing the horse for a period of time, the amount fed may be increased or decreased by 10% to obtain the desired body condition and weight. It is not uncommon for horses to lose 90-100 lbs in the first 90 days of being fed WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed. Once your horse has reached the desired body condition, you may need to feed slightly more to end the weight loss cycle. Easy keepers can then be maintained on WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed to sustain this healthy body condition. More specific recommendations may also be obtained from a Purina representative.  Please consult the tag sewn onto this bag for nutrient analyses and ingredient information.

FEEDING DIRECTIONS FOR WEIGHT LOSS OR MAINTENANCE FOOTNOTES: These recommendations are a starting point that may need to be adjusted up or down to accommodate different horses’ metabolisms, management practices, and forage quality and quantity. For further information regarding the use of this product visit www.wellsolveequine.com, call a WellSolve® Horse Feed Specialist at 1-877-454-7109, or ask your veterinarian. * These feeding recommendations are for horses eating 1.0 lb hay per 100 lbs of Body Weight per day in addition to WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed. This is the minimum amount of good quality hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, decrease amount of WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed fed by 1 lb per 2 lbs of additional hay fed. Do not feed less than 0.3 lbs of WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed per 100 lbs of Body Weight daily.  If horses lose weight too quickly on WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed, increase the amount fed or switch to a more calorically dense feed such as Strategy® Horse Feed. ** Once optimal body condition is obtained, performance horses in moderate and intense work may need to be fed a diet designed specifically for horses with higher caloric requirements such as Ultium® or Strategy® Horse Feeds. *** Pregnant mares should not be on a weight loss program during the first and last 90 days of gestation. Appropriate feeding directions for obese, pregnant mares during 4 to 8 months of gestation may be obtained by contacting a WellSolve® Horse Feed Specialist. Lactating mares should be fed a diet designed specifically for horses with higher caloric requirements such as Strategy® horse feed. Feed at regular times. Divide total daily feeding into at least two servings with 3 to 4 daily servings preferred. Do not feed over 6 lbs of WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed in one serving. DO NOT feed free-choice.  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. Always feed a minimum of 1 to 1.5% of Body Weight of good quality, clean hay or pasture. Overfeeding good quality hay or excessive availability to pasture may reduce the effectiveness of WellSolve W/C® to help control body weight.  Inadequate amounts or poor quality hay may lead to colic and other digestive disturbances. Have salt and plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times. Maintain an effective control program for internal parasites.  Be sure that horses are free of dental problems. This product is not recommended for young growing horses under 2 years of age. CAUTION: Always follow label directions. Feeding added selenium resulting in total diet levels in excess of 0.3 ppm is prohibited.
