When horses work hard or during spells of very hot weather they regulate their body temperature by sweating this not only loses fluid from the body but as it evaporates it also causes the loss of essential body salts particularly sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Failure to replace these body salts (known as electrolytes) can result in fatigue which can in extreme cases cause damage to muscles, bone and cartilage tissue. Containing a concentrated combination of essential plasma salts and dextrose to aid efficient absorption back into the body , Electro Salts should be fed following heavy exercise or during periods of very hot weather where excessive sweating occurs.
Electro Salts can be given easily in the feed, or dissolved in water if preferred.
Always ensure a supply of clean fresh water is readily available.
