    "Feed for Thought": Nonstructural Carbohydrates and the Metabolic Horse
    2014-11-07



    By: Suzie Middlebrook B.Sc., Cavalor Nutrition Specialist - Unfortunately, many horses are currently afflicted by different types of metabolic ailments, such as insulin resistance (IR) and laminitis. These types of ailments are often caused by a lack of exercise, overfeeding, genetics, some types of drugs, or a combination thereof. Horses that are IR or prone to laminitis are unable to cope with high amounts of nonstructural carbohydrates in their diet. Nonstructural carbohydrates (NSCs) are the percentage of a feedstuff that is made up of starches and water soluble carbohydrates, or sugars. NSCs are found in cereal grains and some types of hay, such as timothy grass or orchard grass.

    Martha Bennett, DVM

    "I grew up on a farm with an equine veterinarian as a father and cannot remember a time when I did not own horses. I went to college at Auburn University where I earned a BS in Animal Science and my DVM and I have been practicing veterinary medicine for 12 years. When I started playing polo six years ago I fed my horses Purina Strategy. I trusted the company and I was very familiar with their research in animal nutrition. Because I frequently advise my clients not to make changes in an animal's nutrition unless there is a good reason to do so I was very reluctant to make a change myself. A Cavalor representative started talking to me about Cavalor over a year ago but I really was not interested in switching feed as my ponies were doing great. I continued talking to Libby and did some research on my own and began really thinking about my program. I had several older horses, two that were difficult to keep weight on, and another that was frequently choking on her pellets if they weren't fed to her very slowly. Maybe "great" wasn't the right word.

    I switched all of my horses to Cavalor three months ago and have been absolutely thrilled. I'm no longer feeding supplements. My thin ones have picked up weight in spite of it being winter. And I have not had a single choking incident. I'm also very happy with how much the horses like it, even the ones that were never good eaters are excited at feeding time.

    Thank you Cavalor for your contributions to equine nutrition and thank you to my Cavalor representative, Libby Cifuni for convincing me to make the change."
