Weight Loss The Healthy Way
How can I make my horse lose weight? Another question horse owners frequently ask, and trust us, we feel your pain! Nerida and Sam (our two super-duper FeedXL nutritionists) both have overweight, laminitis prone horses or ponies to manage. They know how difficult and often heartbreaking this can be!!
But FeedXL can definitely help. The thing with weight loss diets is while you want to restrict calories, you need to be very careful not to also create amino acid, mineral or vitamin deficiencies. If by restricting calories you also create zinc and copper deficiency for example this will affect things like hoof growth, immune function and joint health.
Using FeedXL you can create calorie restricted diets that still meet your horse or pony’s requirements for all the other nutrients. The result, they can lose weight but still stay healthy!
