RE: [RC] Elyte "treat" -- overall effectiveness - Ranelle Rubin


This product has no Magnesium..that would concern me if I was depending on it to replace depletion of minerals. DynaSpark is very easy to "trickle" into your horse all day. I mix it with applesauce and water and my horse has learned to drink it from a water bottle. He knows which zipper unzips to get it now, and will turn his head to the right and open his mouth. I had to get a Propel bottle so he couldn't bite the end off my good water bottles, he likes it so much! When he drinks a sip of water at a stop, he knows he gets a "treat"..! I can also squirt it on crinkle cut carrots, or a small amount of mash that I carry on my saddle..

Am curious about the contents of an electrolyte "treat" that is on the market.  It is marketed as a "tasty reward" rather than a bona fide elyte.  This product was not developed with the needs of the endurance horse in mind.  I will post the contents and then would like feedback from those who are very familiar with the needs of a 25-mile LD horse as to how this product relates to the overall e-lyting needs.
I am one of those who is very leery of elytes:  Scared to death of overdoing it.  Scared to death of not doing it.  How will this product affect the endurance horse?
0.55%:  phosphorus
1.5%:  salt (min)
2.0%:  salt (max)
3.0%:  potassium (min)
44.0%:  total sugars (as invert) (Min)
Ingredients:  carrot powder, potassium phosphate, sodium chloride, potassium chloride, cornstarch, egg whites, gum arabic, calcium sulfate, citric acid, cream of tartar, silicon dioxide, artificial color.
Thank you very much for feedback that will be enlightening and helpful in making intelligent decisions for helping our horses stay metabolically sound.
