OxyShot Equine

Equine Oxyshot is a quick acting solution that has been scientifically created using a revolutionary oxygen technology called CS02. Oxyshot contains no banned substances and is ideal for horses prone to excitement, tension, spookiness and unwanted behaviour during stressful situations such as competitions and transportation.

How it works?

During intense exercise or stressful situations, oxygen levels can be depleted. CS02 is a natural formulation that instantly replenishes oxygen levels in the blood to help support the horse’s ability to oxidise lactic acid, which in turn supports relaxed muscles and leads to less performance-zapping tension. Equine Oxyshot will not only assist in maintaining a calm outlook, but also supports the natural recovery process during testing times.

What it does?

  • Fast acting for almost instant results.
  • Helps reduce spooky, tense and excitable behaviour in all horses and ponies.
  • Supports the body’s physical responses to fear, anxiety and stress to help maintain performance and reduce muscular tension.
  • Increased oxygen levels support fitness and stamina in training and competition.
  • Supports recovery after intense exercise.
  • Easy to administer on the day it is required, with no loading dose.
  • Contains no banned ingredients.
  • Supports all-round performance and wellbeing.

How to use?

Oxyshot is administered via an easy-use syringe approximately 30 minutes before activity and can be used every 2 – 3 hours as required.

Ingredients?

Equine Oxyshot contains Sodium chloride (Atlantic) 0.4% and De-ionised water. Formulated with Specially Optimised Bioavailable Formula (SOBF) technology. Does not contain magnesium or tryptophan. Contains no banned substances.

Maximise results with Equine Oxyshot

Equine OxyShot is more effective the less hard feed there is in the horse’s stomach. Following administration restrict your horse’s feed and water for a minimum of 30 minutes to allow optimum absorption.

Formula 4 Feet

Formula4 Feet is the hoof supplement everyone is talking about

Equi Life Ltd, the distribution arm of the UK’s original podiatry clinic, has launched a ‘New Generation’ equine hoof supplement, Formula4 Feet, providing unique benefits for both horses with poor hoof horn quality, cracked hooves, failure to hold shoes for 6 weeks and weak heels.

Robert Eustace FRCVS, Director of the clinic, developed Formula4 Feet in collaboration with Dr. David Frape, the country’s leading equine nutritionist. Mr Eustace is increasingly disturbed by the insidious increase in GM ingredients in horse feeds. He takes the view that the consequences of feeding GM ingredients are unknown and that until extensive research is undertaken, to prove safety both to animals and the environment; it is prudent to avoid such materials

Analysis:

Formula4 Feet Ingredients

25-40% Lucerne meal, 10-24.99% Minerals and Vitamins, Dried yeast (non-viable), <10% Beans, Soya Concentrate GMF, Toasted Soya Beans GMF, Vegetable Fat, Apple Flavour, Antioxidant E321.

Contains no ingredients of animal or molluscan origin. Formula4 Feet is a GM-free supplement.

Equine Electrolytes

The muscular activity associated with training and competition results in a rapid increase in body temperature. The only way for horses to lose this excess body heat is via sweat production; in fact efficient muscle function is dependent on it.

 

Sweat also represents the major route of fluid and electrolyte loss in horses, taking with it significant amounts of water and electrolytes from the body.

Electrolyte composition of sweat

 

Chloride   7gms/litre

Sodium    4gms/litre

Potassium1.3gms/litre

Calcium   .25gms/litre

Magnesium.13gms/litre

Phosphorus.03gms/litre

 

Obviously these electrolytes must be replaced as quickly and efficiently as possible, either in the diet or by oral administration. We talk about the Dietary Electrolyte Balance (DEB) as being the total amount of electrolytes but a standard type mixed diet is usually not enough to meet the required DEB. To demonstrate this point, consider a basic diet of 6kg Grass/Hay + 3kg Oats + 3kg Sweet feed with no added electrolyte supplement. If we analyse this diet it equates to:

 

Actual                      Requirement

Crude Protein                         1200gm                   1300 gm

Digestible Energy                   30mCals                  30mCals

Potassium                              145gms                   55gms

Sodium                                  18gms                     42gms

Calcium                                  60gms                     47gms

Magnesium                              19gms                     22gms

Chloride                                   46gms                     80gms

This diet has a low DEB with Chloride, Magnesium and Sodium levels being low. Potassium is rarely deficient in diets based on grass and hay. An increase in the work of a horse will create a requirement for an increase in electrolyte supplementation. Horses do not store sodium, potassium or chloride from one day to the next. Therefore electrolytes need to be adjusted according to the work level of the horse and the environmental conditions. Working in hot conditions will create a higher rate of sweat and therefore a need for greater replacement. When not in work the horse needs less, if over supplemented, it will increase water intake and urine loss.

A correctly formulated Electrolyte supplement should contain Chloride and Sodium at a ratio of approximately 2:1 as well as Calcium and Magnesium at low levels.

The equine kidney has developed to handle forage diets which are high in Potassium and low in Sodium. As long as the kidneys are functioning properly and the DEB is correct, they will regulate and maintain the body’s Electrolyte levels.

The idea of acid and alkaline Electrolyte supplements is now regarded by equine physiologists as unnecessary. Horses can develop a mild metabolic acidosis after intense exercise and may develop a metabolic alkalosis in situations of heavy sweat loss. In both these cases so long as there is sufficient Chloride in the DEB then the horses kidneys will sort out its own acid/base balance. Vetpro Equine Electrolytes are a neutral PH composition.

It is difficult to assess a horses Electrolyte status from a blood test, samples of blood and urine need to be taken at the same time. Consult your veterinarian for this.

Vitex 4 Equids

Vitex 4 Equids is an aqueous extract of the herb Vitex agnus castus (also known as Monk’s Pepper or Chasteberry; part of the vervain family of plants. Vitex is a shrub grown widely along the river banks and in the valleys of the Mediterranean and Central Asiatic regions. After flowering in high summer, the plant develops dark brown fruit [similar to peppercorns]. These fruits are dried and are the parts of the plant used in the preparation of Vitex4 Equids.

Vitex4 Equids is based on purified water, with no chemical additives or inclusions and is 100% natural. Vitex4 Equids can therefore be used in competition animals.

Vitex4 Equids is unique among herbal infusions in terms of the quality control procedures used during its preparation. Vitex4 Equids is made in a laboratory licensed under the UK Medicines Acts 1968 and 1971. This ensures an exceptionally high level of quality and conformity; the same quality as is necessary to produce the drugs you are prescribed from your doctor.

Vitex4 Equids can

  • Provide a sense of wellbeing in equids
  • Be fed to older horses particularly those who fail to shed their coats or drink excessively
  • Supplement the diet of stallions and mares during the breeding season.
  • Supplement the diet of aggressive or uncooperative animals

How does Vitex4 Equids work?

A large amount of research on Vitex has been carried out in Germany and according to Dr Rudolf Fritz Weiss, Vitex acts on the hypothalamus and pituitary gland. The pituitary gland is the “conductor of the hormonal orchestra” governing digestion, metabolic rate, reproduction, behaviour, growth and ageing.

It is known that Vitex can support the hormonal balance in horses.
