Feed this vitamin and mineral enriched supplement to growing horses 6 months of age and older. Using the scoop supplied in the pail, feed 1.5 scoops 2 times daily (i.e. 3 scoops per day) as a top dress or mix into the grain concentrate portion of the ration. (Each level scoop contains 30 grams.) This quantity ensures that your horse receives the proper quantity of vitamins and minerals. Do not feed Equi‑Min on a free‑choice basis, and keep stored in a safe place with the lid firmly attached.
Feed salt on a free-choice basis separately. This product is designed as a supplement and not to replace a complete and balanced grain-based feed.
To optimize the diet
- Purina recommends analyzing your hay and balancing the ration accordingly.
- Feed clean and dust free hay in sufficient amount daily. 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.
- 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.
