For horses that need to gain weight, Healthy Weight provides calories in addition to forage.

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.

These formulas provide a comprehensive foundation that addresses every aspect of your horse’s health from head to hoof.

Product Details

Platinum Skin & Allergy is a unique formula that may support horses experiencing seasonal skin or respiratory allergies. Seasonal allergens may include grasses, molds, spores or insect bites. Signs your horse may have an allergic response include watery eyes, hives, itching or hair loss. Platinum Skin & Allergy formula works by helping to maintain a healthy immune system and providing ingredients like Quercetin, a naturally occurring plant compound, to maintain healthy histamine levels.

Platinum Skin & Allergy works best when fed in combination with one of our foundation formulas such as Platinum Performance® Equine. For picky eaters, sprinkle less than the full dose during the first feeding, gradually allowing your horse to get used to the smell and taste. It might also be helpful to mix a small amount of water so the supplement sticks to your horse’s feed better and doesn’t sift to the bottom of the ration. If your horse doesn’t eat it right away, don’t be discouraged— it may take a few days for your horse to become comfortable with the change.

Ingredients & Product Analysis

Algal Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), Quercetin, Purified Thymus Protein Complex (Bovine)

Active Ingredients Per 1 Scoop (3,200mg)
  • Algal Omega-3 Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA)* 510mg
