Dengie Healthy Tummy Complete Fibre Horse Feed 20kg

Dengie Healthy Tummy is a complete, high-calorie fibre feed containing the latest ingredients known to promote gut health including alfalfa.

Taking the latest ingredients known to promote gut health, including alfalfa grown in our own fields, Dengie Healthy Tummy is the ideal way to keep your horse healthy and happy.

Recent research suggests that once horses begin training their likelihood of developing gastric ulcers increases. 17-58% of competition and show horses in competitive work have ulcers and the most surprising results were that pleasure horses – 37-59% suffer from EGUS. While there are many possible causes, high concentrate diets and intense exercise have been identified as the trigger in many equines.

Feeding more fibre and reducing reliance on cereal based feeds can be beneficial and advice is that starch intake should be less than 2g per KG of bodyweight per day to reduce the risk of ulcers.

Key Benefits

  • Fibre horse food
  • Promotes a healthy gut
  • High specification of vitamins and minerals
  • Low in sugar and starch
  • Suitable for horses and ponies

Feeding Guide

For horses at rest or in light work:

Healthy Tummy is a nutritionally complete feed containing all the vitamins and minerals your horse or pony needs. There is no need to add any mix, cubes or supplements as long as you are feeding the recommended levels.

For horses in moderate and hard work:

Feeding a high fibre diet is essential should your horse be suffering or have had ulcers in the past. Healthy Tummy can be fed alongside Dengie Alfa-Beet to increase energy intake to meet the requirements of harder work. Healthy Tummy can also be fed alongside mixes and cubes to help counteract the effects of using cereal based feeds.

The feeding rate for Healthy Tummy is 500g per 100kg of bodyweight when using as a complete feed.
*If using as the sole feed alongside forage.
