Purina Animal Nutrition announces a new product line formulated to support gastric health in horses. Outlast™ Gastric Support Supplement, Race Ready® GT and Ultium® Gastric Care horse feeds are now available at participating retailers.
Research shows up to 90 percent of active horses experience gastric discomfort, affecting health, attitude and performance. Purina’s gastric support products contain a proprietary seaweed-derived blend of natural and bio-available calcium and magnesium in a unique honeycomb structure that allows for a greater buffering capacity to support gastric health and proper pH.
“Our field trial participants have reported improved body condition and appetites, as well as better overall attitude and more relaxed horses when supplemented with Outlast™ Supplement,” says Mary Beth Gordon, PhD, director of equine research and new product development at Purina Animal Nutrition. “Additionally, horses notorious for girthiness and grinding teeth showed improvement, even in stressful situations.”
Outlast™ Supplement can be fed as a snack or top dressed on a daily ration. Ultium® Gastric Care and Race Ready® GT horse feeds both contain full rations of Outlast™ Supplement when fed as directed.
