RE-LEVE® is appropriate for any health condition in which a low-starch diet is recommended. Specifically, a low-starch diet may be beneficial for horses prone to the following muscular disorders and metabolic syndromes.
- Polysaccharide storage myopathy (PSSM or EPSM)
- Recurrent exertional rhabdomyolysis (RER)
These metabolic problems may be triggered or exacerbated by the consumption of soluble carbohydrates found in diets that contain typical concentrates.
RE-LEVE maintains its energy density by relying on fat and fermentable fibers rather than starch sources for the majority of its calories. Alternative energy sources such as high-fat stabilized rice bran along with super fibers beet pulp and soybean hulls provide highly digestible and readily available energy.
Replacing a traditional grain ration with RE-LEVE and providing regular daily turnout and exercise are key components in the prevention of PSSM, EPSM, and RER as well as the management of specific metabolic diseases.
RE-LEVE Feeding Directions
Feed at a rate of 2.5-9 kg (6-20 lb) per day depending on the level of work as well as the size and body condition of the horse. RE-LEVE Original should be fed with high-quality hay equaling at least 1-1.5% of the horse’s body weight per day. Replace the horse’s current grain ration with an equivalent amount of RE-LEVE Original.
If a horse requires less than 3 kg (6 lb) of grain per day, RE-LEVE can be used along with a ration balancer such as All-Phase, or a more concentrated low-intake source of vitamins and minerals such as Micro-Max.
