Description

Maintains optimum fluid balance

Replenish helps to maintain normal hydration and electrolyte (important body salts) levels after excess sweating caused by exercise, travelling and hot weather. Body salts are lost through sweat, and daily food intake may not provide enough electrolytes to balance losses.

Water alone will not efficiently restore normal hydration, body function and performance after sweat loss. Replenish promotes recovery post-exercise, stimulates the thirst reflex, maintains nerve and muscle function, supports the digestive system and helps counteract dull, tired behaviour.

Replenish is easy to use, and can be added to water or feed, or used as an isotonic hydration solution.

Replenish helps to promote normal body fluid balance and supplies important body salts (electrolytes) that are lost in sweat during exercise, travelling and in hot weather. It can be added to the feed or given as an isotonic solution to replace lost electrolytes.

Feed Replenish:

  • To stimulate the thirst response
  • To maintain optimal hydration levels to encourage better performance
  • To maintain correct nerve and muscle function
  • To combat dull, tired behaviour
  • To promote recovery post exercise
  • 12 months shelf life


Replenish contains:

  • Calcium gluconate: essential for maintaining correct nerve transition and heart and muscle contractions
  • Glucose: to provide muscle glycogen that promotes recovery after exercise
  • Potassium chloride: to aid oxygenation of muscles and maintain correct hydration levels
  • Magnesium (chloride): a co-factor for several functions, including maintenance of a normal fluid balance
  • Sodium chloride: table salt! Maintains fluid balance, nerve and muscle function

Electrolytes for working horses

During exercise, working muscles produce heat. The body gets rid of most of this heat by the evaporation of sweat from the skin. Sweat consists of high levels of electrolytes and small amounts of other substances dissolved in water. Sweat loss during moderate exercise may be 10 to 15 litres of fluid per hour, and will increase with harder exercise or in hot weather. Electrolyte loss, leading to low blood osmolarity inhibits the horses thirst response, and can negatively effects the fluid balance. A loss of just 2% body water may have negative effects on performance.

Water alone will not efficiently restore normal body function and performance after sweat loss. To replace fluid lost from sweating, an isotonic oral rehydration solution is necessary, because isotonic solutions are more rapidly and effectively absorbed than other solutions. An isotonic solution contains the same concentration of electrolytes as are found in the blood. If sweating is extensive or prolonged, large quantities of electrolytes will be lost and cannot be adequately replaced by isotonic solutions or the normal diet. In this case, electrolytes should be added to the feed and the amount adjusted according to the level of work (sweating rates).

To feed in water: make an isotonic oral solution by dissolving one scoop (50g) of Replenish in 51/2 litres of water.

Replenish should be offered to horses and ponies after long or hard work to help restore normal fluid balance.. Horses may have to be trained to accept isotonic electrolyte solutions before use during competition. Note: always ensure your horse is fully hydrated before hard work, giving free access to plain water if electrolyte solutions are refused.

Ingredients:

  • Sodium chloride
  • Potassium chloride
  • Glucose

Feeding Rates

Weight of Horse/Pony Approx. Height Maintenance - Light
work per day
Medium - Hard work per day
Up to 250kg/550lb Under 12hh ¼ scoop ½ scoop
250kg/550lb - 400kg/880lb 12 -14hh ¾ scoop 1½ scoop
400kg/880lb - 600kg/1320lb 14 - 16hh 1 scoop 2 scoops
Over 600kg/1320lb Over 16hh 1 ¼ scoops 2 ½ scoops

1 level (50ml) scoop of Replenish weighs approximately 50g/1.8oz.

Add Replenish to the feed of working horses every day

For rehydration, make an isotonic oral solution by dissolving one scoop (50g) of Replenish in 5½ litres of water.

Replenish mixed in water should be offered to horses and ponies after long or hard work to help restore normal fluid balance. It is also beneficial where electrolyte and fluid loss is a result of diarrhoea. Horses may have to be trained to accept isotonic electrolyte solutions, so offer the solutions after training sessions before use during competition.

Note: always ensure your horse is fully hydrated before hard work, giving free access to plain water if electrolyte solutions are refused.

Feed supplements should be fed according to body weight; height has been given as a guide. Introduce to the horses diet gradually, splitting between feeds (when applicable).

Replenish is a complementary feeding stuff for equine animals. Feedmark uses nothing in the formulation of this product that contravenes competition rules.
