IR Horse Formula
Insulin resistance is a condition in which your horse’s body does not respond to insulin as it should. The hormone insulin helps control the amount of sugar (glucose) in the blood and is required for the metabolism of foods into energy. When the body's cells don't respond normally to insulin, glucose can't enter the cells as easily, so the body has to produce more insulin in an effort to keep the glucose levels from rising in the blood. This can eventually lead to health issues, such as laminitis, but it doesn't have to. Exercise and a good diet can help your horse stay healthy.
Is Your Horse Insulin Resistant?
These signs should make you suspect an insulin resistant horse:
- excessive weight gain or loss
- fat pads on the body, on either side of the tail, and a cresty neck
- horses that maintain or gain weight on little food (easy keepers)
- abdominal bloating
Your veterinarian can determine if your horse is IR by making a diagnosis utilizing blood tests. A horse with IR should generally be fed a low starch, low carbohydrate diet and have a consistent exercise program.
Whole Pastures IR Horse Formula helps support proper digestion and normalize metabolism.
It is easy to administer. Just mix ½ to one scoop of IR Horse Formula into dampened feed once per day.
