A concentrated non-swabbable nutritional formula designed to support Thoroughbred horses in times of high exertion or stress. Such times may include when racing, training, travelling, at the sales, during weaning, or in extreme heat and humidity. Stress Paste supports a horse’s gut and muscle physiology in a way that helps them directly deal with stress. In helping a horse actually cope with stress, we are able to reduce the impact of stress on performance, behaviour and recovery.
This feed supplement has a unique protective effect for the fore and hindgut and provides magnesium for normal nerve function, amino acids for gut wall health, a powerful prebiotic for gut microbiome support, betaine for hydration, B vitamins for muscle and appetite, magnesium hydroxide and pectin to help protect the stomach and Vitamins C & E for antioxidant protection.
Tubes contain 60ml. Pouch contains 360ml and is designed to allow you to refill your tube by drawing the required amount out of the pouch.
Why would my horse need Stress Paste?
The Benefits of Stress Paste
Acute stress can be emotional or physical and affects horses in many ways. They stop eating. They stop drinking. Muscles can fatigue quickly with dehydration and can result in reduced nutrients available to support energy production.
Competitions, strenuous work, transport, illness, long days competing, extreme heat and humidity, extended times off feed or other major changes to your horses's normal routine can compromise gut health. Gut bacterial populations can shift. Muscles and organs can be damaged with higher rates of oxidative stress.
Behaviour can become anxious and highly strung, and this behaviour then starts the stress cascade all over again. They stop eating. They stop drinking… and so it goes.
Stress Paste is designed to specifically address each of these responses to stress and keep the horse eating and hydrated with well-functioning, well protected muscles. This is why it is complete with so many ingredients. Stress Paste is also designed to support the gut so it and it’s bacteria can remain healthy during higher stress periods.
