Is your horse underweight despite your best efforts to keep your animal healthy and well-fed? A number of natural approaches to your horse’s overall health and specifically its gastrointestinal health may correct your equine’s weight issues and provide all-around health benefits.
Nervous animals, parasitic infections, digestive issues, and missing dietary nutrients are just the start of a long list of potential root causes for your horse’s low-weight condition. Trying a few additions to its diet, or a wholesale change in diet, might turn the animal’s health around without more expensive veterinary tests or procedures.
Natural Remedies for Underweight Horses
Among other natural remedies, adding apple cider vinegar to your horse’s feed or water may help improve its nutritional intake or help it fight off parasites and/or infections that are keeping it underweight. Earth Clinic users below also suggest the use of Karo syrup to quickly increase caloric intake.
