Equine Amino is a quality blend of the key essential amino acids based on Dr Eleanor Kellon’s VMD recommendations
An essential amino acid is one which has to come from the intake, as the other type, non-essential amino acids can be manufactured by the horse. This blend includes three of the essential amino acids that are considered to be the most likely deficient in a horse’s intake and can make a difference with topline and muscle building, and hoof quality: lysine, methionine and threonine.
Ingredients: L-Lysine HCL, DL-Methionine, L-Threonine
36g Equine Amino will provide the full combinations of these amino acids; 20 g lysine, 10 g methionine and 4 g threonine.
18g will provide the lower level of amino acids; 10 g lysine, 5 g methionine and 2 g threonine.
1 level metric tablespoon (20 ml volume) contains ~11g Equine Amino.
How much to supplement your horse is not per se based on bodyweight or workload but how much your horse is deficient in quality protein, however the higher the bodyweight or workload, the higher the requirements. If your horse is less than 450 kg, the lower feeding rate may be sufficient.
Equine Amino can be fed with any of the mineral mixes, Mov-Ease, Diamond V XPC and Mycosorb A+. Lysine and Methionine can be purchased individually.
Protein is the key component required for muscle building and in hooves, the hoof wall is about 93% protein on a dry matter basis.
Equine Amino is a nutritional supplement product for inclusion in horse’s feed.
