Nettex Electrolytes – just in time for summer
The Nettex Electrolytes Range has been formulated to replace vital salts that are lost through any form of sweating brought on from strenuous exercise, travelling or stress-related conditions.
Ideal for use all year round, especially during the hotter months and competition season. However electrolyte supplementation is equally important in the winter months when horses sweat after hunting and during and after travelling. The Nettex Electrolyte Range is available in powder and liquid form or a syringe paste.
Containing branch chain amino acids (BCAA), products in the range will help assist muscle recovery and help reduce fatigue. Helping horses to perform at their best. The Nettex Electrolyte Range will help top up energy levels and is mint flavoured, so is highly palatable. Ensuring horses maintain electrolyte levels during exercise will help reduce trigger factors for muscle related problems.
The Nettex Electrolyte Range is designed to replace vital sodium, potassium and chloride that are necessary for speedy recovery and help to maintain stamina. Equine sweat contains a higher concentration of salts than in the actual body fluid, this means that a sweating horse loses proportionately more electrolytes than water. In hot environmental conditions, 10 to 15 litres of fluid can be lost per hour of exercise. This means that all horses require electrolyte supplementation to prevent poor performance.
It is best to feed electrolytes on a regular basis according to level of work and the ambient temperature. Nettex Electrolyte Maintenance Powder and Liquid are ideal for daily use. They can both be mixed with the horse’s feed or water, making them simple to give. Nettex Electrolyte Syringe Paste Boost has been specially formulated as an easy to give ‘top-up’ that gives fast results and is easy to take with you wherever you and your horse go.
Nettex Electrolyte Maintenance Powder is ideal for regular use. Feeding electrolytes for a few days before and after sweating, as well as on the day will help your horse maintain performance. In the summer months or if horses are in hard work feeding electrolytes daily is beneficial. The powder can be mixed with feed or diluted in the horse’s water, making it simple to administer.
