4 Times to Use Vitalize Recovery Paste

4 Times to Use Vitalize Recovery Paste

Vitalize® Equine Recovery Paste with the Amaferm® advantage contains the ideal balance of vitamins, organic trace minerals, amino acids, anti-oxidants, Omega 6 and Omega 3, MOS and Amaferm for maximum support of immune function and stress recovery. Though the times to feed it are limitless, here are four times we recommend it most.

At the first sign of digestive upset

Digestive upset or colic can happen for no apparent reason. If your horse is displaying signs of abdominal pain, diarrhea or general discomfort, administer Recovery Paste immediately.

Hauling

Hauling a horse can be a very stressful experience. In fact, on average a horse loses 6 to 8 pounds per hour of travel. To lessen the negative impact, administer Recovery Paste every four to six hours while hauling.

With antibiotics

By nature, antibiotics deplete both the good and bad microbes in the gut making probiotics an impractical option. Amaferm is a prebiotic and is research-proven to stimulate beneficial gut microbes, even in the presence of antibiotics, aiding in a speedy recovery. Administer Recovery Paste daily while feeding antibiotics and in the days following antibiotic treatment.

Showing

If you’ve ever had butterflies in your stomach, you may know firsthand the way your horse is feeling while walking up to the show ring. The stress of showing can have profound, negative impacts on the gut. To improve your horse’s performance and maintain a good gut feeling, administer Recovery Paste two to four hours before showing. For an especially nervous or anxious horse you can also give paste the night before and after showing.
