Purina Equine Senior

NOW with Outlast® Gastric Support Supplement*

When our equine partners and trusted companions reach their golden years, their nutritional needs change. Maintaining good health requires consistent and complete nutrition, especially when their dental condition deteriorates and they can no longer effectively chew hay or pasture. Equine Senior® horse feed is carefully balanced with built-in hay to provide fiber that is easy to chew and digest to help meet the aging horse’s nutritional needs and support good health for years to come.

Purina® Equine Senior® horse feed is designed to replace all or a portion of the required forage in a horse's diet. If forage replacement is not needed, consider feeding Equine Senior® Active or Strategy Healthy Edge®.
* Make sure your horse is free of dental problems and can effectively chew and utilize forage. If feeding more hay, reduce the amount of Equine Senior® horse feed by 1.0 lb for every additional 1.5 lbs of hay. If feeding less hay, increase the amount of Equine Senior® horse feed by 1.0 lb for every 1.5 lb decrease in hay fed.
**  To meet nutrient requirements, do not feed less than 0.6 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight per day. If your horse gains too much weight at that minimum feeding rate, transition to Purina® Enrich Plus® Ration Balancing Feed.

A 6 lb meal of Equine Senior® Horse Feed supplies a full serving of Outlast® Supplement.

Caution

Follow label directions: feeding added selenium at levels in excess of 0.3 ppm in the total diet is prohibited.
Wash hands after feeding/handling animals. Not for human consumption. Wash feed/water containers regularly.

Important

1. Feeding rates will vary with size, age, temperament, health status, forage quality, climate and activity level. Feed at regular times, at least twice daily. Do not feed more than 0.8 lbs/100lbs of body weight per meal when fed without forage or more than 0.5 lbs/100 lbs of body weight per meal when fed with forage . Do not feed free-choice. Prevent rapid eating by the horse of any feedstuff.

2. Reduce and/or delay feeding a horse which is hot, excited or showing pain, has fever or diarrhea. Consult your veterinarian if any problems arise.

3. Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days. Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1.0 lb per day for each horse.

4. Provide fresh, clean water at all times. Provide your horse with access to salt. Consult with your veterinarian regularly and maintain a routine dental, parasite control and health care program for your horse.

For horses sensitive to dietary carbohydrates, please consult with a veterinarian or nutritionist for a recommended diet.
