Equine America Apple Lytes is a salt-based electrolyte product that can be added to the feed daily for horses and ponies in hard work, especially those who are sweating.
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.
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 products needed within a solution.
Electrolytes should not be fed to a dehydrated horse - always ensure that water has been ingested first, and that the horse has recovered from exercise.
Available in 2.5kg tubs.
Salt, potassium chloride, magnesium sulphate, calcium lactate, silicon dioxide.
