The Electrolyte for Your Horse or PonyAs horses work and sweat they lose vital electrolytes and mineral salts. At low levels these can be replaced with Sodium Chloride (salt) but, if the horse is in medium to hard work and sweating on a daily basis, an electrolyte supplement must be provided. Without electrolytes, the horse will feel lethargic, and a continuation of this loss is highly detrimental to the horse's health. As the main electrolyte is salt (sodium chloride) it is important to use a salt based product (not a solution) as it is not possible to suspend enough of the mineral salts needed within a solution. Equine America also advise against dextrose based electrolytes.Apple Lytes is a salt-based product which can be added to the feed on a daily basis. Electrolytes should not be fed to a dehydrated horse - always ensure water has been ingested first, and that the horse has recovered from exercise.Always read feeding instructions on product before administering.Unfortunately, due to flying restrictions we are unable to deliver this product outside the UK.
