Applelytes Paste - 30ml Syringe
As 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.
Administer 15ml contents into the horse's mouth on the back of the tongue.
As the main electrolyte is a salt (sodium chloride) it is important to use a salt – granular based product not a solution, as it is not possible to suspend enough of the mineral salts needed within a solution.
- Apple Lytes is a salt-based product which can be fed on a daily basis - added to the feed.
- For high level competition and endurance events, Apple Lytes is also available in a handy syringe for instant replenishment of electrolytes.
- Electrolytes should not be fed to a dehydrated horse - always ensure water has been ingested first, and that the horse has recovered from exercise.
