ProKalm from Science Supplements is an innovative product which helps to manage stress and anxiety in horses. Behaviour such as bolting, pulling, spooking, wind sucking, crib biting, box walking, stamping and poor concentration can lead to a greater chance of infections, gastric ulceration, loss of condition and poor recovery from exercise and competition as well as loss of performance.

ProKalm is best given in feed on a regular basis. The effects of a single quantity can begin within 30 minutes and last for up to 8 hours. The amount given can be varied to get the desired effect. Some horses require higher quantities than others.

Feeding guidelines

Powder

  • Pony (250kg) : 1-3 scoops per day
  • Horse (500kg) : 2-4 scoops per day
  • Large Horse (750kg+) : 2-6 scoops per day

For a strong calming effect, e.g. to clip, shoe, box or when first turning out, give 2-4 scoops for a 500kg horses in feed or mix with a little water and syringe around 1-2h before peak effect is required. For a mild-moderate calming effect , e.g. for riding, travelling, etc give 1-2 scoops for a 500kg horse in feed or mix with a little water and syringe around 1-2h before peak effect is required. For sustained calming over time, for anxious horses or those with vices e.g. cribbing, give 0.5 to 2 scoops for a 500kg horse in both morning and evening feeds for at least 7 days. For first time use we strongly recommend feeding 2 x 25ml scoops per day split between morning and evening feed for a 500kg horse. If the effect is too strong then reduce the rate.

If after 1-2 days the effect is not strong enough then increase to 4 x 25ml scoops per day and up to 6 x 25ml scoops per day after a further 1-2 days.

Each scoop = 25ml / 16g.

Help for yard move

5th Sep 2017
Sarah

Hi. My mare who is just rising 5 and has been backed and is now needing to be moved to another yard. She has had ulcers and want to keep the stress down. She is only fed once a day...tricky to give another feed as seems the case for a 'loading dose'. Is this essential and presume it's best to give for a few days beforehand and perhaps on going. She will have a new herd introduction so needs to have her wits about her for herself. Many thanks.

  • Veterinary Advisor

To get the best effect from the product you should aim to give her the recommended dose twice a day. The second dose only needs to be in a small handful of chaff or you could mix it with water and syringe it if you do not want to give her another feed. However, giving her the powder once a day for a few days before moving her is better than nothing at all. If she is a stressy horse prone to ulcers then yes it would be a good idea to give this supplement ongoing as part of her daily feed.

Can you give prokalm to a 2yr old mare?

6th May 2017
Sheena Hird

I have a 2yrd old part bred Arab who hates it when I take her friend out for a ride and leave her alone, she has a meltdown in her stable or field and looks to escape to find her friend! I'm worried that she will hurt herself or others as it's a blind panic? Will this help her to relax and stay calm whilst I take her friend away, and is it safe to give to s 2yr old?

  • Veterinary Advisor

It is perfectly safe to give this supplement to your filly and is certainly worth a try. However if she does become that distressed you may find it is not strong enough. Separation anxiety can be very difficult to deal with in horses. You should start by taking the other horse away for a while where she can still see it, then taking the other horse out of sight for a short period of time and giving her a small feed so that she is distracted and eventually comes to associate the other horse going away with something good. Gradually increase the length of time the other horse is taken away to the point where you can go out for a ride. You may find that giving something stronger like sedalin from your vet will be very helpful to keep her relaxed whilst you are doing the training.

Dosage

VioVet Customer

Dosage for 500kg horse please? Can I use this a few days before competing or does this have to be fed every day? Thank you

  • Non-Executive Director

You can give this just for a few days if that is all you need to do. You could start with 2 scoops twice daily and then increase or decrease this dose if needed according to effect. Do give it on the day of competition too.

How much to feed

How much would i need to feed a mini shetland who is a nervous wreak cant weigh her has shes too scared

  • Non-Executive Director

For a Shetland Pony I would try two scoops per day. This can safely be increased to 3 per day if you need to. If it is working well, you could reduce to one scoop per day after a week or so.
