VETERAN CUBES are a high quality, highly digestible cube designed specifically for the needs of the older horse or pony. VETERAN CUBES are manufactured so that they are softer than other traditional cubes, whilst remaining dust free. This will help horses that have trouble chewing due to poor teeth. For those horses with teeth problems, VETERAN CUBES can be soaked to produce a soft, palatable mash.
VETERAN CUBES are based on “Super-Fibre” sources which provide a similar level of calories to that of cereals but reduce the reliance on cereals in the diet helping to keep starch levels low. The combination of oil and digestible fibre provides slow-release energy helping to avoid the fizz that can be associated with cereal-based diets.
VETERAN CUBES also contain essential antioxidants such as Vitamin E, which mop up free radicals helping the horse to maintain normal muscle function and decrease recovery time after exercise. Antioxidants also benefit the older horse through maintenance of normal metabolic systems and immune function, thus offering the veteran horse the best protection to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. The addition of a mint flavour makes these cubes highly palatable.
VETERAN CUBES include high-quality protein sources which are required by the older horse and are fully fortified with vitamins and chelated minerals. These minerals can help with complementing natural stress resistance and the immune system, plus improving coat bloom and skin and hoof quality.
