UlsaKind provides nutritional support for horses susceptible to erosion of the stomach lining. The ultra-low-starch cubes include scientifically-proven ingredients including â-glucans and acid buffers which help to maintain healthy digestive comfort and the natural integrity of the stomach lining. They also reduce acidity within the stomach for up to 6 hours. The stomach contents become gel-like, so less likely to splash; feed moves more slowly out of the stomach, shortening the time when the stomach is empty and therefore more acidic.More Info

How to select the correct TopSpec product for your horse or pony
TopSpec products can be divided into five groups: -
1) Feed balancers provide the essential protein and micronutrients that your horse needs to balance his ration. The amount fed each day is fixed by your horse’s optimum body weight and rarely varies.
2) Supplements provide the essential micronutrients that your horse needs to balance his ration. The amount fed each day is fixed by your horse’s optimum body weight and rarely varies.
3) Blends are improved mixtures of straights that provide calories at the levels required for maintenance and/or condition. Condition reflects work done and all other influences. You should vary the amount you add to the ration according to your horse’s condition.
4) Additives are designed to be added to any ration to help solve specific problems e.g. an anxious temperament.
5) Chops are mainly used to mix and bulk the feed, but can be used in larger amounts as a source of calories.
You only need to feed one feed balancer (from group 1) or one supplement (from group 2) to provide all the micronutrients that your horse needs to balance his ration. Which one you select will depend on your horse’s specific requirements and your personal preference.
We have developed four very different blends (group 3), which are designed to be fed with the feed balancer or supplement you have chosen. They vary from low to high calorie and cover a wide range of requirements.
Feeding a fixed amount of balancer (or supplement) each day provides a consistent and optimum level of micronutrients to balance your horse’s diet. The amount of blend you then feed can safely be varied up or down according to condition without affecting the all-important supply of vitamins and trace-elements from the balancer. This is a significant advantage as it puts you in more control of your feeding programme than with traditional compound feeds.
If in addition to your horse’s basic nutritional needs he requires specific help with a problem e.g. with mobility then you can add an appropriate additive/s (group 4) to his feed.
Using the infinite combination of TopSpec feed balancers, supplements, blends, additives and chops allows you to accurately feed every horse and pony whether you enjoy a weekly ride, take care of your retired horse or compete internationally. TopSpec puts you in control of how your horses look and perform. With the help of our team of experienced equine nutritionists manning their Award-Winning helpline let TopSpec products help you to achieve your goals.
