EXPERT TIPS

Why feed an electrolyte supplement?

  • If electrolytes are not replaced after sweating the horse will not feel thirsty and will not drink – the horse will become dehydrated. This will lead to poor performance and if this progresses it can lead to collapse.
  • Normal feed and forage does not contain adequate levels of electrolytes to replace those lost through significant sweating. This is why feeding an electrolyte supplement is important.
  • All sweating horses require supplementary electrolytes and are essential for optimum performance and wellbeing no matter what level or discipline.

How to feed electrolytes?

  • For a one off episode of sweating (e.g. stress or travelling) - a single dose of electrolytes is likely to be effective.
  • For a significant one off episode of sweating (e.g. competing in warm weather) – feed electrolytes for a few days on and after the sweating.
  • For regular sweating (e.g. schooling daily during warm or hot weather) – feed electrolytes daily.
  • Nettex Electrolyte Maintenance Powder and Nettex Electrolyte Maintenance Liquid are ideal for regular use.
  • Nettex Electrolyte Syringe Paste Boost is ideal for one off use or as a ‘Top-up’.

30ml syringe

  • From: Isle of Man, United Kingdom

What size horse does a 30ml syringe do please?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Since this is a supplement rather than a medicine, there isn't a strict "dose" as such. It is intended that a whole syringe is given to any size horse. It is true that this will have less effect in some ways on a larger horse, but it will do no harm in a small pony, but would still benefit any size horse. It would be possible to give two syringes to a heavy horse which has sweated a lot, but this is not normally done.
