Foal head shotHorses are the superior livestock, being more frequently classed as companion animals because they are expected to live long and productive lives. Longevity is always underscored by good nutrition, and access to plenty of minerals – one way to ensure this is to include Anitone in the daily diet, as the mineral content of commonly fed forages is highly variable and rarely adequate.

Since most horse properties run high stocking rates, their soils are compacted and depleted hence they cannot rely on pastures alone to provide the total ration. The nutrient quality and mineral content of purchased forages also depends on the variations of soil, climate and season. Therefore, it is almost impossible under these conditions to ensure that a horse’s diet is perfectly balanced at all times.

Anitone helps to bridge the gap between processed feeds and perfect pastures, and is the ideal supplement for horses under the stress of training, performance, pregnancy, lactation and growth.

It can be either added to the daily feed or dosed over the tongue, and is readily consumed by even the fussiest eaters.

For hard working horses that go of their feed, Anitone can be given in a tonic dose over the tongue.

This shotgun dose may help to counteract the symptoms of gastric ulcers, such as poor appetite and coat condition. An oral bolus will help keep your horses bright and performing throughout long weekend competitions, when frequently a championship effort is required on the last day. If horses are travelling long distances to competitions, Anitone can be useful to counteract the effects of travel stress, and thus help to keep horses from being jaded from the journey, so they will get straight of the truck and perform at the highest level. Horses being fed Anitone regularly have bright eyes, gleaming coats and healthy skin and frequently owners report their horses are calmer and more contented. In particular, it has been found that adding Anitone to the diet of highly strung competition horses, mares in particular, has a settling influence on their behaviour overall. Some owners are giving a large shotgun dose of Anitone the morning of the competition, or prior to going into the ring, and reporting their horses compete with better focus and recovery.
