INDICATIONS

STRESSALYTE® will replace salts lost due to sweating and will aid in the treatment of acidosis. It may also be used as a supportive therapy in the treatment of dehydration if given with water.

RECOMMENDED FOR

  • Horses that do fast work, over a short period of time in cool or moderate weather (eg, early morning trackwork).
  • Counteracting the build-up of lactic acid which can cause muscle stiffness, soreness, fatigue and cramping.
  • Racehorses, harness, cutting and barrel horses.

COMPOSITION

Each 30g dose contains:

Sodium 7.3g Sulfate 453mg
Chloride 9.2g Citrate 5.0g
Potassium 3.1g Bicarbonate 3.6g
Magnesium 114mg    

 

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

For horses (450-500kg)
Ensure an adequate supply of clean drinking water is accessible. STRESSALYTE® is a balanced formulation of physiological electrolytes specifically designed for horses.

To replace lost salts mix 30 grams (2 level scoopfuls) of STRESSALYTE® into the horse’s feed daily. This dose could be administered as one scoopful in each of the morning and night feeds. Alternatively the doses can be mixed into drinking water or administered as a drench. In the treatment of acidosis the dosage may be increased as directed by a veterinarian.
