Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, Healthy Weight is supportive in many ways including skin, coat, gastric, and muscle health. For horses that need to gain weight, Healthy Weight provides calories in addition to forage. It is made from flax oil, a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids, which makes it a healthy alternative to corn oil. Healthy Weight is a great way to provide dense calories in the form of omega-three fatty acids in a small serving for horses that need to gain weight. However, consider Platinum Performance Equine® or Platinum Performance ® CJ as a first line of support. These formulas provide a comprehensive foundation that addresses every aspect of your horse’s health from head to hoof.
Healthy Weight provides a concentrated source of omega-3 fatty acids supportive in many ways including weight gain and skin, coat, gastric and muscle health. Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight. Replace lid after each use.

Choosing the right oil can be an excellent way to add cooler burning fuel to a horse’s diet, support a healthy body condition, coat health and more. Omega 3s are “good fats” required by every cell to properly function. Unable to produce adequate omegas on their own, horses must instead rely on their diet to provide these essential fatty acids that support a healthy level of inflammation. In contrast, omega-6 fatty acids (required in moderation), are pro-inflammatory and can have a systemic negative effect on equine health.

Many horse owners feed their horse corn oil when trying to provide additional calories for weight gain, especially in winter when pasture is limited. Unfortunately, corn oil contains a high amount of Omega-6 fatty acids, which are known to be pro-inflammatory and can contribute to health problems in the joint, with digestion, and skin and allergy health as well as many others. Healthy Weight is made from flax oil and is rich in healthy Omega-3 fatty acids to support a normal healthy inflammatory response.Learn more about supplementing with Omega-3s

“Rider is a 6-year-old purebred Arabian western horse. She’s had weight issues that other supplements just couldn’t tackle. I started her on Platinum Healthy Weight oil per advice from my vet, and this has been the only thing to keep weight on her. Not only that, but her hair coat is sleeker. She seems overall healthier. LOVE THIS PRODUCT!”
