|Instructions for use||MAH is a clear, odourless liquid which you can add to your horse's hard feed or syringe directly into their mouth.
When needed as a calmer, horses must first have a loading amount; this is to replace their magnesium faster than they are using it each day so that you can correct the balance in their body in order to achieve a result.
The loading amount for a horse is 50ml three times daily. If it is not possible to feed three times a day then this can be given as 75ml twice daily. Ponies require a smaller loading amount.
Normally horses require between 3-10 days on the loading amount, most often around 5 days. Very sharp horses may take longer. Quieter horses or those with newly arisen problems usually improve more quickly.
Once your horse has settled, you can then find an appropriate daily maintenance amount. We recommend that you cut back gradually so that you can find a level of MAH that suits your horse.
Requirement can be very variable depending on how much stress each horse is experiencing, but the maintenance level will be approximately 5ml per 100kg per day, so 25ml for a 500kg horse for example. This is normally given once daily.
You can adjust the amount and feeding intervals according to requirement; you may want to increase the level and give twice daily for a period of box rest for example.
Please note that the initial loading amount will mean that your first 1ltr will be used quickly.
