UlsaKindTopSpec UlsaKind cubes are formulated to be highly sympathetic to the equine digestive system, even when it is compromised by extreme acidity.

The formula is very low in starch (UltraLowStarchAnalysis) and sugar and high in fibre but still has a conditioning index of 12MJ/kg making these cubes both ‘Non-Heating’ and conditioning.

TopSpec UlsaKind Cubes are ideal in those circumstances where the internal surface of the stomach has been eroded, because they contain very high levels of β-glucans which form a gel and coat the stomach lining with a protective film. The gel-like stomach contents are less likely to splash the upper squamous epithelium in the stomach.

TopSpec UlsaKind cubes are also highly suitable for any horses or ponies requiring a low-starch/high-fibre diet for other reasons e.g. Those prone to, being treated for or recovering from laminitis, those that are ‘fizzy’ on high- starch feeds, those susceptible to muscle dysfunction when on high-starch feeds, those needing support for correct limb development, those intolerant to high-starch feeds for other reasons.
