Performance horses are athletes and just like humans, they are required to maintain top condition in order to perform successfully. In striving to achieve these high levels of athletic performance, horses are exposed to a variety of stress factors including intense physical training, increased handling, altered dietary and housing conditions, as well as the stress of transportation and competition. Quite often horses in hard training develop stress-induced appetite reduction.
When racing or competing on a regular basis, these horses lose condition, energy, the ability to perform to expectation and recover quickly from exercise.
What is AppeTITE?
AppeTITEis a highly palatable, cherry flavoured liquid that stimulates hunger and encourages eating when horses are off their feed.AppeTITE is a liquid formula that can be used on a daily basis to improve eating habits or strategically for horses off their feed.
How does it work?
AppeTITE’s concentrated dose of B vitamins stimulates the hunger reflex in the horse making him want to eat and look for food. AppeTITE is a highly palatable cherry flavoured liquid. It is slightly acidic which causes the horse to lick and produce saliva, stimulating him to eat.
AppeTITE is especially effective in performance horses or horses on a high grain/low forage diet, as they have an increased risk of a B vitamin deficiency. Maintaining appetite ensures the horse has the renquired energy for competition and can maintain body condition during times of stress.
