Online for Equine offer the Day Son & Hewitt Eliviat.
A blend of electrolytes designed to be given after hard competition or exercise to maintain health and performance.Eliviat supplies sodium, chloride, potassium and smaller amounts of magnesium and calcium to replace salts lost during strenuous exercise or competition.
Provided in handy sachets to ensure the supplement stays fresh and takes out the guess work of feeding supplements to your horse or pony.
The level of minerals found in most forage, compound feeds or cereals - and even in supplements - is not usually sufficient to replenish the electrolytes lost during exercise.
Electrolytes maintain fluid balance in the body therefore losses must be replenished to ensure good health and performance?. Electrolytes play critical roles in the horses body including muscle contraction and processing waste products therefore after strenuous exercise or competition it is essential these are replaced.
Electrolyte loss can cause muscle fatigue, weakness and decrease the thirst response to dehydration, levels of minerals in compound feeds and forage is not always sufficient to replenish those lost during strenous exercise therefore these may sometimes have to be added to the diet.
Eliviat can be used in two ways:
1. To replace body water and hydrate, add one sachet to 5.5litres of water to make an oral isotonic solution.
2. To replace body salts in working horses add directly into feed - 1 sachet per day for horses in light-moderate work or 2 sachets per day for horses in hard work, after competition or on an especially hot day.
Always ensure that alternative clean drinking water is available at all times.
Supplied in a handy tin containing 30 sachets.
