- Senior Care
Senior Care is specially formulated for older horses or other horses with an inability to consume pasture or hay. Designed to be easy to chew, Senior Care makes a great mash. Lower fortification means it can be fed at higher rates to replace fiber lost from forage. Senior Care contains pellets and beet pulp, and has no whole grains. It is fully fortified with probiotics, natural source vitamin E, organic selenium, chromium and CalSea. CalSea is a fast acting marine based calcium that buffers stomach acid, aids in the prevention and relief of gastric ulcers.
