MEGAVITE-B® higher energy recovery paste for horses

MEGAVITE-B PASTE provides a concentrated source of nine B-complex vitamins and three amino acids.

WHY CHOOSE MEGAVITE-B PASTE?

  • Aids recovery and stimulates appetite - MEGAVITE-B PASTE is a valuable supportive therapy for horses recovering from illness or injury. The readily available source of B vitamins will help in improving metabolic processes and red blood cell production, as well as stimulating appetite.
  • Assists liver function – The addition of methionine, choline and inositol provides key nutrients involved in liver function.
  • Supplements deficiencies – Grains, hay and chaff contain low levels of B vitamins compared to green feeds.  MEGAVITE-B PASTE helps to top up sufficient quantities of those vitamins for optimal health.
  • Safer and more effective than injections – Using MEGAVITE-B PASTE means avoiding unwanted issues and complications from injections such as needle-shy horses and infection.
  • Palatable and potent formulation.

DOSAGE & DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Warm product to room temperature and stir contents before use. Withdraw required dose with syringe supplied. Recommended dose is 5 mL twice weekly.

  • Racing horses: Give 5 mL twice weekly over the back of the tongue. 24 hours before race day, give 10 mL to achieve high blood levels prior to the stresses of racing. The pre-race loading will also ensure the metabolic co-factors are readily available to enable a quick recovering following the race.

  • Competition horses: Give 5 mL twice weekly during periods of hard training and competition. While travelling away from home for several days, give 10 mL 4-6 hours prior to travelling and then 5 mL every third day while away. This will help replenish energy stores, encourage appetite and minimise the stress of competing in a strange environment. Ponies should be given 1 mL per 100 kg bodyweight.

  • Horses recovering from illness or injury: Following illness, injury of worm burden, MEGAVITE-B will provide a readily available source of B-complex vitamins to improve metabolic processes, stimulate appetite and assist recovery. Give 1 mL per 100 kg bodyweight twice weekly until the horse is fully recovered.
