Nutritional supplement for foals and growing horses designed to help promote normal tendon and joint growth, and healthy leg development.
Research has shown a link between nutrition and the development of orthopedic
disease in foals. Leg Aide™ from Progressive Nutrition Veterinary Care
addresses this by supplying essential nutrients that promote normal growth.
The typical time frame for improvement is less than two weeks for sucklings;
under four weeks for weanlings, and six to eight weeks on yearlings.
Traditionally, dealing with growth-related problems with nursing foals
involves restricting feed to lactating mares to try to slow down milk
production. In weanlings, a similar approach is taken. Is this the best
solution? We have found it more beneficial to increase the mineral levels
in the foal’s
diet to levels necessary for normal growth.
