Can I Feed My Horse Just Hay and Platinum?

Yes, many horses thrive on hay and Platinum Performance® Equine. In numerous feeding trials, horses on just hay and Platinum Performance® showed improved health over those being fed typical grain-based commercial diets.

Research

The Science Behind the Supplements

In a recent study conducted at UC Davis, where horses were administered Platinum Performance® Equine formula in place of feeds of the same caloric value, 88% of the horses gained weight. Results suggest that providing this comprehensive formula twice daily can help your horse digest his rations more efficiently and effectively, requiring less hay and grain to maintain his weight.

Is Bio-Sponge® safe to administer to my horse daily?

Bio-Sponge® is a formula that can be administered daily for horses that have had ongoing intestinal disturbances. If you provide Bio-Sponge® to your horse for seven days and don't notice any improvement, then it's probably not going to help that particular case. However, if it does help, you can continue to administer Bio-Sponge® to your horse on a daily basis as part of your supplement program.

Why I Choose Platinum

  • "I have been using Platinum Performance from the beginning of its development. Our Platinum horses have shinier coats and are noticeably more muscled. We have cut the use of other supplements by 90%. The horses that have been raised on Platinum are more muscular and have stronger endurance."

  • "When I came across "Breeze," she was severely underweight. I immediately started her on Platinum, and within three months there was a noticeable difference in her appearance, her coat was getting slicker and she was becoming much more bright-eyed and happy. I definitely contribute that to Platinum."

  • "The Platinum Gastric Support has proved to me to do what it was made for, support our horses appetite and digestion. This product in particular has helped one of my futurity horses this year already, he that had stopped eating his grain and because he's a three year old getting ready for the futurities we made a guess that he had maybe developed some ulcers. We did some research and found that the Platinum Gastric Support is VERY affordable and made to aide in appetite, digestion and gastric health. We consulted with Platinum and ordered. We started giving the supplement and he started eating his grain the very next day. I firmly believe in this product, thank you Platinum Performance for making such an affordable product that WORKS!!!"

  • "Galaxy is a 9-year-old Thoroughbred that came off the track. He was thin, under muscled, and started tying up which was being caused by ulcers. I immediately started him on Platinum Performance to help give his body the tools to build his strength. Now his weight has leveled out and he looks like a true happy hunter. Thanks Platinum Performance!"

  • "Valberta had ulcers and was a very picky eater. Since putting her on Platinum, she has put on weight and is cleaning her feed tub, which she has never done. The morning after her win, the feed tub was empty, which is a really good sign for her. Normally, it would take 3 to 4 days to get back to her normal eating routine."

    Kenneth and “Valberta”

  • "Bob is a 7 year old gelding who loves to cut... This past winter Bob ended up being hospitalized for almost week after he came down with Colitis. Luckily I got him to the vet early enough that they were able to get him on antibiotics, IV's and Platinum Bio-Sponge. After many sleepless nights Bob came home and a couple weeks later I started riding him again. Bob is now on Platinum Performance and back to his normal wonderful self. Bob looks amazing and is stronger than ever. I recommend Platinum to all of my cutting friends as I feel it has helped Bob recover from a terrible virus and get back in the show pen!"

  • "At Colorado State University, we have demonstrated that Bio-Sponge is highly effective at binding bacterial toxins commonly associated with diarrhea in foals. We often use it as part of our first line of defense for foals with diarrhea. We have also found it to be highly effective for use for diarrhea in adult horses."
