Feeding rates

Veloci‑T Max is recommended for racehorses. Feed in conjunction with water and a minimum of 1% body weight (on a dry matter basis) of a long stemmed forage (hay/pasture). Feed according to the following table, whereby the lower quantity meets minimum vitamin and mineral requirements and the higher quantity meets Purina Superior recommendations. Ideally, feed enough to achieve desired body condition, and for every kilogram under the recommendation, provide 275 grams of Purina Optimal (35720). Provide free‑choice salt. Daily ration should be divided into 2 and preferably 3 separate feedings daily.

  1. Amounts can vary depending on the hay. Purina recommends that you have your hay analyzed and balance your ration accordingly. Also, depending on the hay, Equilizer (35710) may be better suited as a supplement than Optimal (35720).
  2. Do not provide more than 0.5% of Body Weight of this feed at one time.
  3. Provide a source of fresh, clean water at all times.
  4. Follow sound management practices along with disease and sanitation control measures. If there are any questions, contact your veterinarian, Purina dealer or Purina sales consultant.

CAUTION
Directions for use must be carefully followed.
Feed is perishable. Store in a dry, well‑ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect‑infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, abortion or death.

To optimize the diet

  • Purina recommends analyzing your hay and balancing the ration accordingly.
  • Feed clean and dust free hay in sufficient amount daily. Feeding poor quality hay or feeding inadequate amounts could cause colic and other digestive upsets.
  • Offer source of salt (NaCl) daily as well as plenty of fresh and clean water at all times.
  • Make any feed change gradually over a 7 to 10 days period.
  • Daily ration should be divided into 2 and preferably 3 separate feedings or more.
  • Use a scale to weigh your feed so you know exactly how much your horse is being fed. Do not feed by volume.
  • Purina recommends providing a maximum of 0.5% of body weight of this feed at one time.
  • These recommendations are intended as a guide. They should be adjusted to variables of management, environment and individual needs. Consult your Purina Equine Consultant if necessary.
  • Follow sound management practices along with optimal preventive veterinary medicine.
