High grain diets have been shown to have a detrimental effect on digestion as well as many other aspects of equine health. Many horses thrive on hay and Platinum Performance® Equine including high-level athletic horses. Also, in numerous feeding trials, horses on just hay and Platinum Performance® showed improved health over those being fed typical grain-based commercial diets.
Anything that can be done in a management capacity to emulate the natural grazing diet of the horse is beneficial to support the normal digestive system and avoid colic from dietary complications. Horses are grazing herbivores, and their gastrointestinal tract is set up in a way that thrives on consistent access to high-fiber forages to function optimally. Horses on full pasture turnout have less incidences of colic than those stalled for most or all of the day.

“Bella not only had open ulcers in her stomach but significant scarring from previous episodes before I had purchased her. After getting Bella treated, I decided to give Platinum Performance Gastric Support a try. Bella has since been a happy horse with a happy stomach. Thank goodness we found this product.”

“The vet diagnosed my mare with gastric health issues after palpating known trigger points. I gave her Platinum Performance and Gastric Support. Within the month, she was doing so much better and after three months of just the Platinum supplements, all her issues were gone. I now keep her on Platinum Performance and Balance. She is doing and looking great!”
