TopSpec AntiLam is a palatable, pelleted forage balancer specifically designed to provide nutritional support for those prone to laminitis. It can also be fed to horses and ponies undergoing veterinary care. It contains a range of highly-effective supplements pelleted onto a cereal-grain-free, low sugar, low starch, high fibre and very low-calorie base.
AntiLam is a palatable, pelleted forage balancer, including a multi-supplement, designed to provide nutritional support for those prone to laminitis. AntiLam is used and recommended by nutritionists, vets and farriers during and following veterinary treatment.
AntiLam is a brilliant formulation combining several supplements with a high fibre, very low-calorie carrier to make it palatable. Long term trials at Middle Park Equine Research Centre showed that horses and ponies on restricted/poor grazing do not gain any weight when fed AntiLam. It can also be used very successfully as part of a calorie-controlled diet when weight loss is required.
This unique forage balancer is so palatable that it can be fed out of the hand to horses and ponies at pasture to provide vital nutritional support.
AntiLam should be fed on its own with forage. The forage can be in the form of late-cut hay and/or unmolassed chops e.g. TopChop Lite, TopChop Zero, controlled grazing, or a combination of these, depending on the individual circumstances.
For example, we would recommend that an overweight 12hh pony, on box-rest should receive 125g of AntiLam plus 1kg of TopChop Lite twice a day. In addition, 2kg (1 flap) of late-cut meadow hay that has been soaked for about 12 hours in ample fresh, cool, clean water, should be fed daily.
TopSpec nutritionists recommend that horses and ponies can stay on AntiLam permanently. However, if extra condition is needed, Comprehensive Feed Balancer is a very safe product to use. If extra condition is not needed, we recommend that healthy horses and ponies stay on AntiLam for at least a year but after that they can be fed Lite Feed Balancer provided they are not obese and do no more than light work.
Example for pony prone to laminitis.
Typical feed regime for a 12hh pony:-
- 2kg (approx. 1 flap of a small bale) late-cut meadow hay (soaked as advised) per 24 hours or 2kg of damped TopChop Lite per 24 hours until hay is analysed.
Plus two feeds per day - each containing:
- 125g TopSpec AntiLam Forage Balancer.
- 1kg TopChop Lite (‘Non-Heating’ unmolassed alfalfa/straw chop).
- Access to a salt lick 24/7(unless suffering from PPID and urinating excessively).
Additives if required; Calmer or 10:10 Joint Support.
This regime should be reviewed as necessary (often weekly initially) according to the condition of the pony.
