In an article by renowned equine nutritionist Dr. Tania Cubitt, the subject of horse weight gain is discussed in length. The problem with trying to increase a horse’s weight is that many caretakers assume that they need to alter their horse feed by either giving their animals more of it or including an equine weight gain additive. While such approaches can be the correct course of action in some cases, it’s important to look deeper into the issue. Though you may assume that the animals in your New Philadelphia, Ohio; Strasburg, Ohio; or Carrollton, Ohio, stables may simply require more to eat, there could be a number of other reasons why their fat and muscle percentages are so low. For instance, stress, parasites, bad teeth and illness can all have an effect on a horse’s health and weight. Only once you can rule out these issues should you consider adding a digestive enhancing supplement or high-fat equine vitamin from Dover, Ohio-based Direct Action Company to your daily feed.
