Water, Salt, and Using Electrolyte Supplements - What You Need to Know
Regardless of the time of year, all horses need plenty of water and all horses need to have supplemental salt. Hay and/or pasture DO NOT contain adequate sodium (salt). A sodium deficiency can lead to many health issues including dehydration and muscle tremors -- horses may even avoid drinking water!
Electrolyte supplements are often mistakenly used as the horses's only source of salt.
Whether your horse works or performs, is ridden on the occasional trail ride, or is retired, this teleseminar will help you decide how to best keep your horse in good sodium balance.
The teleseminar emphasizes:
- Water balance inside your horse's tissues
- Encouraging water consumption
- Salt supplementation options
- Salt dosing
- Problems with inadequate salt
- Anhydrosis -- when your horse stops sweating
- Electrolyte supplements -- they are not all the same
- How to use electrolyte supplements
- Thirst mechanism -- it doesn't always work!
