The Ultimate Advanced Formula Equine Forage Balancer with added support for the Immune system, GI tract, and Joint health.
Pro Veteran is a superior equine forage balancer that has been developed for elderly horses & ponies and adult horses and ponies that require additional immune system and joint support.
It is a specifically formulated blend of minerals, vitamins, and amino acids at optimum ratios to help balance deficiencies and excesses in forage.
B vitamins are included that play important roles in the metabolism of carbohydrates, fats and protein, nerve transmission, energy metabolism and red blood cell production, nervous system, immune system, healthy hooves, skin, hair, eyes, gastrointestinal tract and liver function.
Glucosamine, MSM, and Boswellia are included at optimum levels to support all-round mobility and joint, tendon, and ligament health.
Glucosamine is the building block of all connective tissues, including cartilage. It’s a constituent of glycosaminoglycans, which are found in cartilage and synovial fluid, a thick, viscous fluid that reduces friction between joint cartilage.
MSM is an important component of connective tissue, playing a particularly important role in hooves, bones, joints & skin.
Boswellia helps maintain supple joints and all-round mobility, soothes the gastrointestinal tract, helps to maintain normal colon function, and supports respiratory tract health.
Natural Vitamin E as well as a highly absorbable form of Vitamin C and a Plant-based vitamin A are included to support a healthy, well-functioning immune system.
Milk Thistle Seed Extract is included to help maintain healthy liver function and provide additional antioxidant support.
VistaCell is included to support healthy gut microflora and maintain correct pH balance.
Pro Veteran is manufactured in a UFAS (Universal Feed Assurance Scheme), BETA NOPS (Naturally Occurring Prohibited Substances), FEMAS(Feed Materials Assurance Scheme), ISO 22000 ( Food Safety Management System) certified state-of-the-art premix manufacturing facility. Pro Veteran is produced using the highest quality feed assured ingredients under strictly controlled production conditions and conform to the requirements of EU and UK legislation governing the manufacture of animal feeding stuffs.
We recommend additional micronised linseed meal throughout the winter months or if a horse is fed predominantly hay or haylage, this is for the essential fatty acids that a horse may be short of when grass is restricted. Essential Fatty Acids cannot be manufactured within the body & must be present in the diet.

Please note our guidance on the use of Salt: We do not add salt directly to our formulations.
Chloride in salt is naturally quite abrasive. So adding salt can lead to rapid degradation of vitamins used in our mixes if exposed to light, moisture and heat etc.
Addition of salt could considerably reduce the shelf life of our products. Our products are packed and sealed in carefully controlled packing facilities at our mixing house. We cannot guarantee how products are stored once opened by our customers.
We have a fast turnover of products and all our mixes benefit from long shelf lives. Customers can feel confident that their products will remain fresh and free from degradation.
Our Balancers and Premixes are formulated with the specialist guidance of World leading nutritionists at the Professional Mixing House Company we use.
We recommend all horses should have free access to salt. However, a salt lick alone cannot be relied upon to cover maintenance & sweat requirements. Many horses do not choose to use the lick enough.
The amount of salt needed is variable depending on how much the horse sweats.
For example a 500 kg Horse needs 10g of sodium per day (25g of salt) for maintenance needs, this is without exercise or sweating on hot days.
1 – 2 tablespoons of salt per day, added to the horses feed is a reasonable amount to cover maintenance requirements.
Working horses will require additional electrolytes. Dissolving the salt in water & spraying on to hay, can be an alternative option for picky eaters.
Feed 2 x 75ml scoops per day for an average 500 Kg horse.
Feed 1 x 75ml scoop for an average 300 Kg pony.
Do not exceed 2 scoops per day & adjust intakes if other trace element sources are used.
We always advise with any new feed/supplement/dietary change that it should be made gradually due to the horse’s sensitive digestive system. As advised by the national research council. If necessary start with just a pinch and work up to the full recommended amount.
Pro Veteran is a powdered supplement that we recommend is mixed with a soaked base feed such as a suitable soaked mash, soaked hay cobs, soaked grass nuts, soaked beet pulp etc.
How long will a bag last?
A 3.18 Kg bag of Pro Veteran will last about 30 days when fed at the recommended rate for a horse at 2 x 75 ml scoops per day. The same bag will last about 60 days if fed at the recommended rate for a pony at 1 x 75 scoop per day.
