Senior Pelleted

Senior Pelleted is a complete feed designed for older horses with poor teeth that can no longer eat long-stemmed forage and are difficult to keep in good condition. 

The high level of digestible fiber makes it safe to feed at high amounts to supply the fiber no longer available from hay.  The lower starch and sugar formula can help lessen hyperactivity and negative metabolic effects.  Added vitamin E and selenium help to support immune function.  Fortified with GRO 'N WIN® technology, Senior Pelleted supplies essential vitamins and chelated minerals along with balanced essential amino acids for superior protein quality to help maintain your aging horse's muscle tone and topline.
