Equi-Cal can also provide the minimum daily requirement of Calcium for horses of all ages to support bone, nervous system and muscular health.
Should be fed according to size, feed intake, and actual calcium requirements. The average does is 1-2 oz. per day. 1 oz. provides approximately 8 g of calcium. 1 scoop = 1 oz. (included)
10 lb. pail = 160-320 day supply
Although most of the Calcium in the horse’s body is incorporated into crystals that give bone and teeth their strength, small amounts of free Calcium ions have pivotal functions. Free Calcium is so important that it's one of a tiny number of substances that are under hormonal control.
Free Calcium makes nerves fire. It controls both the contraction and relaxation of muscle. Calcium constricts arteries to regulate blood pressure, is a cofactor in blood clotting, and triggers insulin release from pancreatic cells among its many functions in the equine body.
Grass hays in some areas, such as regions in the south, are low in Calcium compared to Phosphorus, as are diets heavy in plain grains, Coconut Meal or Brans. Pregnant, lactating and growing horses have tremendously increased needs for Calcium compared to adults. For precise recommendations, get professional advice.
