Many horses are difficult to handle and do not fulfill their full potential as a result of spookiness or nervousness.
A deficiency of thiamine has been shown in several species to lead to nervous behaviour. B-QUIET provides concentrated levels of thiamine to treat the symptoms of thiamine deficiency, including hyper-irritability and nervousness in horses. Thiamine plays an important role in carbohydrate metabolism and nerve transmission. Thiamine deficiency can sometimes be caused by grazing on bracken fern.
B-QUIET is also useful for horses on high grain intakes and in heavy training, to aid energy utilisation and promote appetite. In these horses, production of thiamine by intestinal bacteria may be reduced by stress and hind gut acidosis.
Excitable and highly strung horses.
Horses that are poor travellers and nervous away from home.
Horses that are nervous, and prone to tie up.
Mares who become irritable when in season.
Horses “heated up"by grain.
Instead of injectible vitamin B1.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
For nervous horses, and other horses showing signs of thiamine deficiency, use 30g per day mixed in the feed for as long as signs persist. Feed 30g per day mixed in feed to horses on high grain intakes in heavy training. Double doses may be given for 2 days prior to a show competition or racing to enhance the calming effect.
1 heaped scoop = 30 g
Other feeding management practices to reduce nervous behaviour should also be used. Match energy intake with body condition and workload. This includes the use of high fat supplements such as KER EQUI-JEWEL or “cool"prepared feeds. If further supplementation with high levels of other B vitamins is needed, EQUIVIT HEMABUILD can be used.
