  • Description

    An increase in body temperature, either as a result of exercise, travelling or high environmental temperature will cause the horse to sweat. The evaporation of this sweat helps the horse to cool down and regulate his body temperature.

    Sweating causes fluid loss, together with the loss of body salts or electrolytes, which are contained in the sweat.

    So maintaining hydration, and replacing lost electrolytes is important not only for elite competition horses, but for all horses and ponies who are sweating after work – from Pony Club rallies or long hacks in the summer,  right through to international eventers, show jumpers and dressage horses!

    The important electrolytes are Sodium and Chloride, Potassium, Calcium and Magnesium and they play many key roles in the body, but especially muscle contraction, the nervous system, and maintaining the fluid balance around cells.

    Because horse sweat contains a higher concentration of sodium and chloride than his other body fluids, it is important that supplemental electrolytes are provided at the correct concentrations to ensure that the desire to drink is maintained, so fluid balance AND electrolyte losses can be restored, to promote rehydration and recovery, and ensure continued optimum performance. 

    This is especially important during long distance travel, or longer show and events, when fatigue will increase, and performance will decline if electrolyte and fluid balance (rehydration) are not restored.

    Research has shown that just 1% dehydration can adversely affect performance.

    Apple Lytes Paste been carefully formulated to begin to replace the key electrolytes, and encourage drinking to help prevent dehydration and maintain peak performance.

    Apple Lytes should not be administered on a empty stomach, but should be given at appropriate intervals during long distance travel. Following exertion, once cooled and calm, the horse should be offered a small fibre feed or access to forage, before administering Apple Lytes Paste. 

    What are the benefits of Apple Lytes Paste?

    Convenient, easy to administer syringes, handy for travel and shows.

    Sodium, Potassium and Chloride levels are carefully balanced to provide optimum levels to promote drinking and restore electrolytes losses to maintain performance.

    Calcium and Magnesium are also provided from bio-available sources to replenish losses.

    Low sugar and suitable for all horses and ponies

    Highly palatable, with an attractive flavour, and readily accepted even by fussy feeders.
