Foal Care

Nutrition for Growth & Development

Give Your Foal a Healthy Start

Creating a strong foundation for young, growing horses is important as they grow rapidly and rely on consistent nutrients to be available through the diet for proper development. Building blocks for growth like amino acids, vitamins, trace minerals, antioxidants and omega-3 fatty acids should be available daily to help young horses reach their full potential.

Platinum Performance® Equine

Providing Support for the Developing Foal

Platinum Performance® Equine can be administered to young horses as soon as they start nibbling on feed. The powerful ingredients found in Platinum Performance® Equine are important to young growing foals because they provide the body with the vitamins, trace minerals, fatty acids and amino acids needed for proper growth and bone formation. When you provide the body with the building blocks that it needs to function properly, young growing animals are more likely to meet their genetic potential.

Foals Under Stress

During the weaning process, foals can experience high levels of stress and may develop gastric ulcers during this period. Looks for signs and visit with your veterinarian about how you can support your foal’s health.

Osteon®

Supporting Proper Growth & Development

Research has shown that natural, highly bio-available silicon, like that found in Osteon®, plays an important role in the development, growth and maturation of bones and connective tissues. Several studies indicate that an insufficient amount of dietary silicon is associated with poor growth rates and developmental abnormalities. It is recommended to begin providing a bioavailable source of silicon during pregnancy.
