Chronic Protein Deficiency In Horses – HorseTalk

Discussion:

Does you horse have any of the following?

  • Poor top line
  • Poor hair coat
  • Breakdown of connective tissue like suspensory ligaments
  • Laminitis and other lamenesses
  • A hay belly
  • Metabolic syndrome (obesity, Insulin Resistance)
  • Hormonal dysfunction (Cushing’s, PPID)
  • Dental disease

Wouldn’t you like to know how to prevent these rather than be left with how do I treat the problem? The answer lies in something most horse professionals don’t talk about.

This HorseTalk video covers:

  • What is protein?
  • How much protein should your horse be consuming?
  • Are all proteins the same?
  • What sources are available for horses?
