Supplements--Making the Right Choice: Dr. Getty's August teleseminar
Older horses. Competing horses. Lactating mares and weekend warriors. Youngsters with budding careers. All are candidates for supplements. Or are they? Are supplements effective? Is there danger in overlapping or over-supplementing? Are supplements worth the expense? When are they appropriate, and when not? What does research reveal about them?
So many questions. On Aug. 16, Dr. Juliet Getty will present a 90 minute teleseminar on Supplements--Making the Right Choice. In returning to one of her most frequently requested topics, Dr. Getty will present the fundamentals and address specific concerns from her audience.
The TeleSeminar will emphasize:
--Making sense of ingredients with "fancy" names;
--What is the science behind the supplement?;
--Are the dosages adequate to be effective?;
--Safety for pregnant or lactating mares;
--Appropriate supplements for insulin resistant horses;
--Herbal preparations for endocrine disorders such as equine Cushing's disease;
--Long term usage;
--Interaction and overlap with other supplements;
--Nutritional needs of horses on pasture vs hay;
--Free choice supplements;
--Things to avoid;
--How the supplement meets your horse's needs.
