Equine Copper Supplement

Now in pellets!  Same great formula as the powder!

Poly Copper is for horses with diets deficient in Copper or high in Copper antagonists, such as sulfate in drinking water, or diets that include high iron intake.  It is also helpful for horses with "bleached" coats and red ends on manes and tails.  Recommended trial period is four weeks of consistent use.

Copper plays a role in a variety of functions within the horse’s body.  It supports the production of:

  • Coat and skin pigment
  • Synthesis and maintenance of joint cartilage
  • Tendons, ligaments and blood vessel walls
  • Reproduction
  • Immune function

Feeding Directions:
Feed at the rate of 15 g daily or as directed by your Veterinarian or Nutritionist.
1 scoop = approximately 15 g (included)

This Poly Copper supplement is coated with polysaccharide, which protects it from being released until it reaches the digestive site where it is most effectively absorbed for maximum bioavailability . 

Copper is a micromineral, and one of the most important trace minerals for the horse.  A critical element in many important metabolic pathways in horses, Copper is necessary for:

  • The production of connective tissue including tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone
  • Elastin formation
  • Pigment formation
  • Immune system function

Copper deficiency can occur for many reasons

1)     Insufficient intake

2)    Low Copper values in soil, forage and/or ration

3)    Interactions with other antagonistic minerals:

  1. At the root level in pasture, with Zinc and Iron
  2. Within the horse, with Zinc, Iron, Cadmium, Arsenic, Molybdenum and/or Sulphates

As a component of many enzyme systems, Copper is also involved in making Iron available to the body for blood, in proper nerve signaling and repairing free radical damage.
