Equine BlueLite is a specially formulated oral rehydration electrolyte-vitamin-energy supplement specifically designed to rehydrate horses that have lost substantial amounts of body fluid and electrolytes as a result of profuse sweating frequently seen after exercise and during warm weather.
Equine BlueLite provides a tasty pH regulating action that helps establish and maintain the proper digestive pH, thereby facilitating the absorption of electrolytes and the utilization of nutrients during the digestion of feedstuffs. This tasty pH regulating action makes Equine BlueLite the ideal rehydration product for high performance horses, as well as for colts, fillies and horses that are stressed from dehydration resulting from digestive upsets such as diarrhea.
Equine BlueLite contains a broad spectrum of buffered electrolytes and trace mineral proteinates thereby reducing the potential of irritating the mucosa of the inflamed intestinal tract as compared to many harsh inorganic chemicals.
Equine BlueLite provides multiple sources of energy in the form of dextrose, sucrose, lactose and fructose in combination with high levels of vitamins. This combination of electrolytes, energy and vitamins makes Equine BlueLite a convenient and quick nutrient supplement for the horse during competition, training and trail rides, as well as for continued 10-14 day usage for horses stressed from parasites or marginal nutrition.
Equine BlueLite has been field tested on race tracks, in stables and on long distance endurance rides by veterinarians, trainers and horse owners. The pleasant, sweet taste in combination with strawberry and apple flavoring, makes Equine BlueLite convenient for use both as a top dress on the feed or in the drinking water.
Some horses will occasionally refrain from drinking water with sudden changes in taste – even when it contains the sweet, pleasant taste of Equine BlueLite. In these situations, Equine BlueLite should be top dressed or mixed in the feed. Its pleasant taste and convenience for both feed and water applications make Equine BlueLite ideal for use by horse owners, trainers and veterinarians when working with horses of any age under a wide variety of field and performance conditions.
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Top dress Equine BlueLite on the feed or add Equine BlueLite to the drinking water continuously for 10-15 days for horses enduring severe, extensive physical activity, or when horses sweat profusely as a result of hot weather or training, racing, showing. Also use in horses that may be debilitated as a result of poor nutrition, internal parasites and for other stresses that may result in the sudden loss of body weight.
Foals and yearlings – daily top dress 1-2 ounces of Equine BlueLite on the grain ration.
Working/pleasure horses – top dress Equine BlueLite on the grain ration according to the degree of dehydration or shrink that occurs as a result of energy expended and the amount of fluid lost as sweat during exercise or work based on the following:
Amount of Equine BlueLite
Ponies and horses 300-600 pounds: 1-2 ounces daily for routine or mild physical activity, 2-3 ounces daily for extensive-endurance physical activity.
600-900 pounds: 3-4 ounces daily for routine or mild physical activity, 4-6 ounces daily for extensive-endurance physical activity.
900-1,200 pounds: 5-6 ounces daily for routine or mild physical activity, 6-10 ounces daily for extensive-endurance physical activity.
1,200 pounds and over: 7-8 ounces daily for routine or mild physical activity, 8-10 ounces daily for extensive-endurance physical activity.
1. Add 1 to 2 ounces of Equine BlueLite to each 2 gallons drinking water consumed by the horse on a daily basis.
2. Horses will usually consume drinking water equivalent to 7-9 percent of their body weight. The demands of profuse sweating, hot weather, lactation and extensive exercise may increase water needs by 20-50 percent.
NOTE: Two (2) heaping tablespoons equal approximately one (1) ounce of Equine BlueLite
