When Is It the Right Time to Supplement My Horse with Electrolytes?

Platinum Performance® Equine provides a sufficient amount of electrolytes and trace minerals to support a healthy electrolyte balance and maintain hydration in most horses. The number of servings of Platinum Performance® Equine may be increased during times of extreme temperatures, however additional electrolyte support may be needed in times of heavy exercise or shipping in hot weather.

Signs of Dehydration

  • Pinch Test: If the skin on your horse’s neck doesn’t quickly return to its place after being pinched, he may be dehydrated.
  • Mucous Membranes: If your horse’s mucous membranes in the nose and mouth are dry or red, he may be dehydrated.
  • Capillary Refill: If you press and remove your finger against your horse’s gums, the spot should turn white and regain color quickly. The longer it takes the capillaries to refill correlates with the severity of the dehydration.

Horse Health Tip

What is Anhidrosis and What Are the Signs?

Anhidrosis in horses in known to be a partial or complete inability to sweat, also known as "drycoat". Anhidrosis is of particular concern in areas that get extremely hot for horses in heavy work. The lack of the body's ability to sweat can be very harmful and cause a decrease in the horse's performance, recovery rate and tolerance to exercise.

Common Signs of Anhidrosis

Besides a lack of sweat, are elevated body temperature, increased respiratory rate and dilated nostrils.
