Feed 1 oz. per 5 gallons of water or top dressed on feed. 1 scoop = 1 oz scoop included
10 lb. pail = 160 day supply
30 lb. pail = 480 day supply
Not all horses take in their complete salt requirements from a free-choice salt block. Pro-Lyte is a well-balanced electrolyte supplement that supplies the Sodium Chloride your horse needs, in addition to the other electrolyte minerals that are lost in sweat; Sodium, Chloride, Potassium and Magnesium.
Added to dry feed or water, Pro-Lyte will also encourage your horse to drink more water to rebalance fluids and ensure the proper digestion of feed. This electrolyte formula will be effective if given up to four hours prior to an event (e.g. endurance), and can be given with meals or water after exercise.
The electrolytes in Pro-Lyte are vital to provide essential mineral balance for energy production and healthy muscle function. Maintaining electrolyte concentration plays a major role in keeping the body properly hydrated. Horses that are not well hydrated can be more susceptible to heat stroke in summer, or impaction in winter.
When horses sweat, they lose Sodium at twice the rate of Potassium, and Chloride at twice the rate of Sodium. Since forages (pasture or hay) provide generous amounts of Potassium, the Pro-Lyte formula concentrates on the Sodium and Chloride needs your horse’s diet cannot provide, along with Magnesium.
Pro-Lyte provides electrolyte support to help offset dehydration and maintain normal cellular function. A highly concentrated, low-sugar electrolyte formula, Pro-Lyte helps maintain fluid balance on an everyday basis.
This full spectrum formula can also be used during periods of warm weather, heavy training, or dehydration to provide the minerals needed to support healthy metabolic function, electrolyte balance and hydration.
Electrolytes play a key role in:
- Water balance
- Formation of urine
- Muscle movement
- Nerve conduction
- Heart function
Feed 2 oz per day to meet maintenance salt requirements; more in hot weather and/or when sweating. If adding to water, add no more than 1 oz per 5 gallons and also offer a source of untreated water.
