I.R. PELLET™

Micronutrient Supplement

Advances in veterinary medicine have uncovered several metabolic disorders that affect horses. In general, these disorders have an effect on the production of energy within individual cells. Signs of metabolic problems, however, vary from horse to horse. Because of this, the nutritional management of these horses often veers from traditional methods.

Many overweight horses are prone to metabolic problems. Horses on low-grain diets often do not consume sufficient amounts of feed to fulfill their vitamin and mineral needs. For these horses, Kentucky Equine Research has formulated this concentrated, low-calorie, low-starch source of vitamins and trace minerals.

  • Appropriate for horses on forage-only or low-grain diets
  • Provides horses with top-notch vitamin and mineral nutrition
  • Supports optimal digestibility through the inclusion of yeast culture
