Purina® WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed

Purina® WellSolve W/C® Horse Feed

Manages caloric intake while satisfying the horse. If it were as simple as reducing calories, then cutting back on what you normally feed would solve your horse's weight problem, right? But as everyone knows, it's not quite that simple. For instance, what happens when a hungry horse wolfs down his meager portion only to watch his stable mates continue to eat? And if you cut back on grazing time, how can you be sure your horse is still getting the right vitamins, minerals, and needed fiber? That's where Purina WellSolve W/C Horse Feed can help.

* These feeding recommendations are for horses eating 1 pound hay per 100 pounds of body weight per day in addition to WellSolve W/C® horse feed. This is the minimum amount of good quality hay to be fed. If feeding more hay, decrease amount of WellSolve W/C® horse feed fed by 1 pound per 2 pounds of additional hay fed. Do not feed less than 0.3 pounds of WellSolve W/C® horse feed per 100 pounds of body weight daily. Over feeding good quality hay or excessive availability to pasture may reduce the effectiveness of WellSolve W/C® horse feed to help control body weight.

** Once optimal body condition is obtained, performance horses in moderate and intense work may require a diet designed specifically for horses with higher caloric requirements such as Ultium® or Strategy® horse feeds.

*** Pregnant mares should not be on a weight loss program during the first and last 90 days of gestation. Lactating mares should be fed a diet designed specifically for horses with higher caloric requirements such as Strategy® horse feed.
Best Results
  • Feed at regular times.
  • Divide total daily feeding into at least two servings with three to four daily servings preferred.
  • Do not feed over 6 pounds of WellSolve W/C® horse feed in one serving.
  • Be sure to weigh your feed using a scale. A small scale can be purchased in the fishing department of many sporting goods stores.
  • Do not feed free-choice.
  • Feed horse in a natural position from troughs placed at normal head height or lower.
  • Have salt and plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times.
  • Maintain an effective control program for internal parasites.
  • Be sure that horses are free of dental problems.
  • This product is not recommended for young growing horses under 2 years of age.
Changing To
  • Start with the amounts given for the weight and class of the horse. After observing the horse for a period of time, the amount fed may be increased or decreased by 10 percent to obtain the desired body condition and weight.
  • It is not uncommon for horses to lose 90 to 100 pounds in the first 90 days of being fed WellSolve W/C® horse feed.
  • Once your horse has reached the desired body condition, you may need to feed slightly more to end the weight loss cycle.
  • Easy keepers can then be maintained on WellSolve W/C® horse feed to sustain this healthy body condition.
  • More specific recommendations may also be obtained from a Purina representative.
  • Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days.
  • Mix the new feed with the old, gradually increasing the amount of the new feed while decreasing an equal amount of the old.
  • Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1 pound per day for each horse.
Caution
Always follow label directions. Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals as it may cause illness, abortion or death.
