Electrolyte Supplement of Concentrated Physiological Salts for Horses
Many owners do not realise that horses require higher levels of salt, especially when moderately sweating during daily work. Adding an electrolyte mix to the ration will encourage your horse to drink as well as replace the important minerals lost through sweat.
Kohnke’s Own Cell-Salts contains sodium, chloride, potassium and magnesium which are commonly lost in sweat from exercise and are crucial for body function and performance.
Each level scoopful provides 25 g of Cell-Salts. Mix the measured amount into the daily feed. It is recommended to provide Cell-Salts after extended exercise to encourage rehydration. Always ensure that adequate clean & fresh drinking water is available at all times.
For horses at rest, feed 25 g daily.
For horses in light work (up to 30-60 minutes walking, trotting, light cantering), feed 37.5 grams daily.
For horses in moderate work (30-120 minutes walking, trotting, cantering and some galloping) feed 50 grams daily, recommended to split between morning and night feeds.
For heavily or intensely worked horses (15-30 minutes fast trotting, cantering, galloping, jumping, horses in full race training), feed up to 75 grams daily, split between morning and evening feeds.
For ponies and miniatures, feed half the above amounts.
