Pur-A-Plus

#35840

Performance, health and appearance of the horse

Pur-A-Plus is a vitamin enriched viable yeast culture (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) supplement for horses. Yeast improves the micro-flora in the hind gut by increasing the number of cellulytic and lactic-acid-utilizing bacteria, and this enhances fibre digestion. Pur-A-Plus is ideal for older horses, horses prone to colic, horses under stress (shipping and training), horses receiving antibiotics and horses with hay
bellies.

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 pre-ferably 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.
  • 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.
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.
