Feed Your Horse Like A Horse

Optimize your horse's nutrition for a lifetime of vibrant health 


Feed Your Horse Like A Horse provides you with 20 chapters and an Appendix to help you make calculations easy to understand and convert the U.S. system to the metric system. 


The book is divided into two main sections. Part I offers fundamentals of each nutrient classification, along with details on forages, concentrates, and even which treats are safe to feed.


Part II desribes specific conditions and circumstances your horse may be experiencing. Dr. Getty offers insight into the causes, treatment, and prevention of diseases such as laminitis and equine metabolic syndrome, digestive problems such as ulcers and colic, weight management for both the overweight and underweight horse, and conditions such as arthritis, allergies, and much more. This section helps you feed a pregnant mare and support her newborn foal as he grows into adulthood. And as more and more horses are living incredibly long lives, their nutritional needs change along the way -- this, too, is discussed in Part II. The last chapter deals with the special needs of athletes, to keep them in top shape to work and perform.
