Supplements, Herbs and Treats

Reading the guaranteed analysis sections of the products shown on the Horse Tech and Uckele websites  and other products can help you become familiar with various ingredients used in supplements for your general information and education. This doesn’t mean you need each of these ingredients or that the amounts shown are optimal levels for your horse.

The LPI link is repeated here as it is a valuable reference regarding the action of supplements and nutraceuticals. Keep in mind that there are some differences in how some are metabolized by different species.
