The tastiest way to provide your horse with his required daily serving of salt
PLYMOUTH, MA – Salt is one mineral that many horse owners don’t always think about when it comes to supplementing their horse’s diet, but it’s vital to their horse’s health and well-being. Luckily, there is now an easy and tasty way to make sure horses are meeting their daily sodium needs. SmartPak is excited to introduce new SmartSalt Pellets, which is the only pelleted salt supplement currently available for horses. SmartSalt Pellets are a palatable way to help your horse meet his daily sodium needs and encourage normal drinking.
Salt (also known as sodium chloride) plays an important role in normal nerve and muscle function and can help encourage horses to drink, making it critical for their overall health. “Adult horses in no work need at least one ounce of salt per day, and that need goes up when sweating from exercise and warm weather,” said Lydia Gray, SmartPak’s Staff Veterinarian. “Proper hydration is essential to a horse’s digestive function and overall well-being no matter what season it is. If your horse’s daily requirements for salt aren’t met, he may not be in optimal health and able to perform at his best.”
In a review of customer-reported data, 60% of horses’ diets weren’t providing their daily sodium requirement. Pasture, hay, and fortified grain provide very little sodium chloride, which means many horses’ diets come up short. Providing a salt lick can help, but some horses use them excessively and others don’t use them at all, meaning that you never know if they’re getting the salt they need to meet their requirements every day. Salt supplements can help by providing the two macro minerals that make up salt (sodium and chloride), ensuring that your horse is getting a consistent amount every day.
Some horses will not use a salt block or consume loose salt adequately, leaving them without a palatable alternative. SmartSalt Pellets offer a unique option by providing salt in an easy-to-administer pelleted form. SmartSalt Pellets are the ideal choice for helping horses achieve their daily sodium chloride requirement, and to encourage normal drinking. Each serving provides one ounce of salt in tasty apple-banana flavored pellets even picky eaters love!
