As horses reach their geriatric years, it becomes important to address the changes that occur by adjusting feeding programs to fit their nutritional needs. Purina® Equine Senior® horse feed is formulated to deliver complete balanced nutrition, including forage, to the senior horse with problems chewing and digesting feed and forages due to age.
Purina® Equine Senior® horse feed provides the specific balance of energy, protein, vitamins, minerals and high-quality fiber (including beet pulp) your senior horse requires to maintain proper body condition. And the unique Easy Soak™ Pellet Technology makes it easy to chew, regardless of your horse's chewing ability, and is more digestible than whole grains, hay or pasture. Purina® Equine Senior® horse feed provides the best nutrition for senior horse. Plus, your horse will love the taste.
Feed form: Complete pellet and extruded nuggets
Recommended for: Older Horses, especially those that may be losing weight due to poor nutrient absorption, dental problems or no teeth at all. This feed can replace all or some of the horse forage requirement.

Feeding recommendations are based on average daily requirements for horses of different body weights. Actual feeding
rates required to adequately maintain good condition of individual horses will be affected by individual metabolism
and progression rate of aging processes. Therefore, feeding rates may need to be gradually adjusted in some horses
according to body condition. Aging horses unable to maintain adequate body condition when being fed the
recommended amount of Equine Senior® horse feed should be examined by a veterinarian to determine the presence of
potential health issues. Do not feed more than 0.8 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight in one meal. Equine Senior® can be blended with other
feeds or oats for a short time while transitioning your horse to Equine Senior®, but for the long term, Equine Senior should not be mixed
with oats or other grains because these grains will dilute the nutritional balance of Equine Senior® and are more difficult for the
aging horse to chew and digest. Do not feed free choice.
