RiteTrac Helps Horse Regain AppetiteBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · November 7, 2017
Susan McKinney of Indiana reached out to Kentucky Equine Research (KER) when her Thoroughbred horse Jumble started developing changes in behavior associated with ulcers.
McKinney tried treating Jumble with various digestive and calming supplements, which helped to an extent but he was still tense and distracted, and would walk circles in his stall, grinding his bedding to dust. He also lost interest in grain and reduced his water intake. McKinney turned to KER.
After consulting with a KER nutrition advisor, McKinney decided to try RiteTrac™ for Jumble, and she saw rapid results. In less than a week, she noticed he was more enthusiastic about his grain when he came in to eat. He returned to his previous calm state and stopped pushing his pasturemates around.
“Then, lo and behold, he started focusing on me when I brought him in and out of the stall for meals, lowering his head and standing close. This was his normal behavior I had not seen for several months,” she explained. “My anxiety is lower too! I’m not constantly watching for signs of colic. We are completely back to normal with behavior, water intake, interest in grain, and hay consumption.”
RiteTrac is a proprietary blend of ingredients designed to support total digestive tract health, targeting both the foregut and hindgut of the horse quickly and effectively. Contact a KER nutrition advisor today and see if RiteTrac can help your horse.
