Feeding poor quality hay or feeding inadequate amounts could cause colic and other digestive upsets. • Offer source of salt (NaCl) daily as well as plenty of fresh and clean water at all times. • Make any feed change gradually over a 7 to 10 days period. • Daily ration should be divided into 2 and preferably 3 separate feedings or more. • Use a scale to weigh your feed so you know exactly how much your horse is being fed. Do not feed by volume. • Agribrands Purina recommends providing a maximum of 0.5% of body weight of this feed at one time. • These recommendations are intended as a guide. They should be adjusted to variables of management, environment and individual needs. Consult your Purina Equine Consultant if necessary. • Follow sound management practices along with optimal preventive veterinary medicine.
