Be careful with electrolyte losses

The most important electrolytes in the horse's organism are: 
Sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride, phosphate and bicarbonate.

No matter what electrolyte it is: if there is a deficiency 
Health problems can arise for the animal.

The electrolytes are vital minerals that are responsible for maintaining fluid and acid-base balance, the transmission of nerve impulses and muscle contraction in the horse's body. The most important electrolytes are sodium, potassium, chloride, calcium and magnesium. Under normal conditions, the horse can balance its electrolyte levels by consuming water, feed and salt. However, increased sweat loss, for example due to high temperatures, intense exertion or stress, can lead to an electrolyte deficiency. This can lead to serious health problems such as dehydration, muscle cramps, colic or heat stroke. In addition, an electrolyte deficiency can affect the horse's performance and well-being.

In order to avoid or compensate for an electrolyte deficiency, it makes sense to give the horse a supplementary feed that replaces the lost minerals. You should make sure that the supplementary feed has a balanced composition that corresponds to the horse's natural sweat profile. One such product is Peaks Electrolytes from Peakhorse, Ireland. Peaks Electrolytes contains high-quality electrolytes and can be added to drinking water or feed to support the horse's rapid regeneration and rehydration after training or in the heat. Peaks Electrolytes is ideal for sport horses, pleasure horses and breeding horses and can be fed daily or as needed.
