The large horse also needs its supplements

It is members of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association that have approved of the use of one series of natural supplements in the form of the registered trademark of Myristin. For just over twenty years, the supplements have mainly been catering for domestic dogs and cats and small animals. But today, farmers and horse handlers across all sporting codes and commercial sectors will be pleased to know that there are horse supplements for their animal stock too. While the small creatures are being spoiled with tasty tidbits just to get them to take their chewable supplements, the horses can still have their oats and chomp on it.

While dogs and cats are being treated with a special bacon flavor, the horse’s supplements are mixed into any of their favorite oat bags or sweet feeds, sugar remaining quite popular for the horses. The Myristin pack for horses needs to be packaged up to three kilograms to take care of at least three months of feeding time if you will. A daily mixture of Cetyl Myristoleate (CMO) powdered and easily mixed into a horse’s regular feeds. If not one feed per day, two feeds are also on the cards.

Horses’ natural supplements focus substantially on CMO content; however, they will still be receiving their quota of vitamin and nutrient enrichment. Myristin or CMO does contain a degree of corn starch. This again comes in powdered form.  There is a preoccupation with price considerations and comparisons with other products, but in the interests of the animal’s health, owners should rather be focusing on what comes recommended to them and what their vets say work best for their particular stable.

It goes without saying that given the animal’s size and potential for activity, it will be consuming a lot more CMO than the small animals.
