How should I feed my thin horse?
Since the daily needs of horses vary depending on many factors such as race, age, sex, body condition, exercise level, climate and environmental conditions, it is very difficult to understand whether they are fed adequately, that is, whether weakness is due to nutrition. In addition to malnutrition, it should be ensured that the horse is healthy, that parasite drugs are used properly and that dental care is good.
If your horse is fed with the usual ration program, but is losing weight, this may be caused by many different diseases. Trying to make him gain weight by increasing the amount of feed is a very wrong practice and can lead to serious health problems in the long term. For this reason, it is recommended that you get nutrition counseling service.
