“I've relied on nutrition as an important tool for quite a while. We're seeing benefits — whether that be sperm motility, mares breeding back easier, or getting bred and not having a lot of fluid post breeding.”
— Charlie Scoggin, DVM, MS, DACT, Rood & Riddle Equine Hospital
Omega-3 fatty acids play a significant role in equine nutrition due to their part in multiple applications including support for bone growth, reproduction and fertility.
No longer seen as simply a vehicle to deliver her foal, the broodmare is being recognized as the ultimate steward of equine life. See how nutrition plays a vital role in successfully achieving pregnancy then nourishing the mare and developing foal.Listen Now
Platinum Performance® Equine was created out of clinical necessity as a comprehensive omega-3 formula to transform equine health at the cellular level. Because of its comprehensive nature, the ingredients work synergistically to support every aspect of health and performance, including joints, muscles, hooves, skin and coat, digestion and more.
Recommended daily dosage for a 1,000 lb horse is 2 scoops, which is 2 servings.
Platinum Potency® is designed for breeding stallions that have a less than desired viable sperm count, or less than normal motility. This antioxidant and omega-3 fatty acid formula contains a powerful blend of fat and water-soluble antioxidants, and DHA, to help protect sperm from the damaging effects of free radicals.
Platinum Motility Plus® is used to help support sperm motility. This formula contains Acetyl L-Carnitine, which has been shown to stimulate beta lipid oxidation in the mitochondria of the sperm. This increased energy production can help support healthy sperm motility in some stallions with low motility.
Rich in omega-3 fatty acids, Healthy Weight supports 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. The 1-gallon Healthy Weight now comes in an easy tip-to-measure container made from a material that protects the formula from degradation due to UV light. Administration of the 5-gallon Healthy Weight oil is easier with the Healthy Weight Pump, sold separately.

“Nutrition is key to any successful breeding program. When you have healthy mares that equates to strong weanlings, and the growth and development of your yearlings can directly impact your bottom line.”

“Where we see the biggest advantage is using Platinum with broodmares from conception to foaling, while bone is developing. We also give it to the babies and yearlings to help them grow and develop.”
