When horses work, or during hot weather, they regulate their body temperature by sweating. Sweating not only loses fluid as it evaporates, but also essential body salts, particularly sodium, potassium, chloride and magnesium.
Failure to replace these body salts (known as electrolytes) can result in fatigue, and damage to muscle, bone and cartilage tissue. Electro Salts is a balanced combination of the essential plasma salts, (sodium, potassium, calcium, chloride and magnesium) in combination with dextrose to aid efficient absorption of the salts.
Electro Salts should be fed following any hard work, or regularly during periods of hot weather. Electro Salts can be fed easily in feed, or dissolved in water. Remember it is essential that horses have plenty of water available to them when taking any electrolytes.
