Age Is Just a Number

Tailored Nutrition to Keep Your Senior Horse Thriving

Senior horses are thriving due in large part to advances in veterinary medicine, improved nutrition and owner dedication. With preventative care centered around dental health, physical comfort, a healthy weight and digestive efficiency, senior horses are capable of living long and healthy lives. Platinum Performance® Equine will help supply calories, protein, omega-3 fats, vitamins, minerals and fiber needed for intestinal health. Healthy, normal digestion is important for senior horses and a good probiotic such as Platinum Balance, can help to support normal gut function. An advanced joint supplement like Platinum Joint Care Competition + HA can provide nutrients needed for healthy joint function. For horses having difficulty maintaining weight, Healthy Weight can be added to supply additional calories.

To support weight loss, Healthy Weight provides calories from flax oil, a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. Flax oil is a healthy alternative to corn oil, a pro-inflammatory omega-6 rich oil that can make inflammatory conditions worse in your horse.
