For compensation of electrolyte loss
- For rapid regeneration
- Dietetic feed
Stiefel electrolyte is a water-soluble, dietetic supplementary feed to compensate for electrolyte loss in horses due to excessive sweating and the stabilisation of the water and electrolyte balance of foals.
Stiefel Electrolyte is used to compensate for electrolyte losses in sports horses as well as for the stabilisation of the water and electrolyte balance in foals and old horses. It contains sodium, potassium, calcium and magnesium. Electrolytes such as sodium and potassium are required tp stabilise the pressure in the body cells. Large amounts of electrolytes are excreted during strong sweating at high temperatures and due to high performance or diarrhoea. The loss of electrolytes is proportional to the loss of sweat. On hot days, a horse weighing approx. 600 kg can lose up to 35 l of sweat in 5-7 hours. Electrolytes are responsible for regulating the water balance. An inadequate water balance leads to a lack of energy and drop in performance. The highly concentrated ingredients of Stiefel Electrolyte compensate for this deficit and contribute to faster regeneration. Stiefel Electrolyte is also enriched with magnesium to support the muscular metabolism. Any horse that needs to perform should be sufficiently supplied with electrolytes during the tournament season and during intensive training. Old horses may also experience high electrolyte losses at high temperatures. There are unfortunately no deposits for electrolytes in the body. Sufficient supply in the feed is therefore required in the event of high consumption.
Hint: Sufficient roughage should be supplied when high performance is needed or at high temperatures. Crude fibre binds water inside the intestines and thus acts as a storage facility.
Feeding recommendation: To compensate for electrolyte loss due to excessive sweating
Large horses (600 kg body weight) 50- 100 g per day
Small horses 30 - 60 g per day
Recommended duration of feeding: 1 - 3 days
Offer water for ad-libidum uptake. It is recommended to consult a specialist before feeding the additive.
For stabilisation of the water and electrolyte balance, when at risk of or experiencing digestive problems (diarrhoea)
Small horses 50 - 100 g per day
Recommended feeding duration 1-7 days (1-3 days for sole feed)
It is recommended to consult a veterinarian before feeding the additive.
Store in a cool and dry place protected against direct sunlight. Use soon after opening. Store out of reach of small children.
