WellSolve Low Starch Horse Feed
A low-starch and low-sugar diet for horses with special needs. WellSolve Low Starch Horse Feed is formulated for horses that need a low-starch, low-sugar diet.
The low starch and sugar diet for horses with special needs. Your veterinarian may recommend that you feed a low starch and sugar diet to your horse. Our goal in creating WellSolve L/S Horse Feed was to thoroughly research the area of equine carbohydrate metabolism and provide the best possible diet we could offer for horses with special needs. WellSolve L/S Horse Feed is the result of years of research and development, including controlled studies at the Purina Animal Nutrition Center and extensive field testing. We researched many aspects, including the amounts and types of fiber, the ideal feed form, the unique vitamin and mineral requirements of horses on low starch and sugar diets, as well as energy requirements. We adjusted protein-to-energy ratios and added high quality essential amino acids as well as antioxidants and essential fatty acids. It’s an enormous balancing act that requires the consideration of more than just the sugar and starch levels. However, the result is worth it – a nutritionally balanced, highly palatable diet that veterninarians and horse owners can use with confidence.

Feeding Directions with Hay or Pasture It is important to keep in mind that consistency is key—this includes consistency of feed ingredients, management and timing of meals. Prolonged fasting interrupted by one or two large meals per day is not advised. Instead, we recommend a feeding plan that mimics natural grazing behavior by providing feed that a horse can nibble on throughout the day. The best way to achieve this is with long-stem forage and several small, consistently spaced meals of WellSolve L/S® Horse Feed. Start with the amounts recommended for the weight and class of the horse. After observing the horse for a period of time, the amount fed may be increased or decreased to obtain the desired body condition and weight. More specific recommendations may also be obtained from a Purina representative. Please consult the tag sewn onto this bag for nutrient analyses and ingredient information.
