Vetplus Event - Once a Month Vitamin & Mineral Supplement (Equine)
Vitamins and Minerals are an essential part of a horses diet, but are often the most neglected and mis-understood area. Some owners feed a daily vitamin and mineral supplement, whilst others believe that a complete feed provides adequate nutrients. Both of these sources may have high levels of vitamins and minerals but how bioavailable are they? If an element is bioavailable it means that the horse can digest, absorb and utilise it easily. eg. If you fed your horse a lead pencil, it would be an excellent source of Lead but your horse would not be able to absorb and utilise it, ie. not bioavailable.
Ingredients Event is a liquid supplement containing an advanced formulation of over 60 elements, vitamins and micronutrients organically bonded to amino acid. The process of bonding the elements to an amino acid is called Chelation. Chelation: i) Increases the bioavailablity of the elements contained in event by 300-500%, meaning that the body can actually absorb and utilise the trace elements. ii) Enables the body to store the elements contained in event in the soft tissues for up to two months. The horse is then able to selectively utilise the elements as and when it requires (on-tap store).
