Healthy Tummy is a new complete fibre feed from Dengie, created from the finest home-grown alfalfa and then blended with ingredients to promote optimal digestive health.
Alfalfa has long been recognised as a natural buffer to acidity in the horse’s gut and should form the foundation of the feed ration for those that are suffering from ulcers or have had them in the past, or as a preventative for others whose owners are concerned about the possible occurrence of ulcers.
In addition to alfalfa, Healthy Tummy includes oregano, cinnamon and ginger, which are believed to be powerful antioxidants, as well as improving palatability. Protexin In-Feed Formula, with prebiotics and live yeast, have been included to aid fibre digestion further, along with a high specification of vitamins and minerals including biotin and a light coating of soya oil for slow-release energy and coat shine.
Research shows that about 40 per cent of leisure horses, 60 per cent of competition horses and 90 per cent of racehorses could be affected by Equine Gastric Ulcer
Syndrome. Feeding a high-fibre diet can play an important role in helping to reduce ulcer recurrence.
Healthy Tummy is nutritionally complete, so it can be fed alone to horses at rest or those in light work.
For those in moderate to hard work, it can be fed alongside balancers and supplements to meet higher nutritional requirements and cereal-based feeds if more energy is needed.
