VECTA Vitasel E is a highly concentrated blend of Selenium & Vitamins A, E & B1 that are required for horses that suffer from ‘Tying-Up’ or may be susceptible to it.
Tying-Up’ ...A Common Problem.
‘Tying-Up’ of the muscles: usually of the back legs, can be a problem in performance horses (particularly during early training); in young fillies on high oat diets, or in horses that are worked following a rest day on full racing ration. Horses returning from a spell and put into hard work can also be prone to symptoms of ‘tying-up’.
‘Tying-Up’ is a complex biochemical change that occurs in muscles, preventing the release of energy and the muscle contraction process.
Prevention Is Better Than Cure...
A preventative programme that is very effective in preventing the development of ‘tying-up’ or re-occurrence in performance horses can be summarised as follows:
1. Work horse each day, with light work even on rest days.
2. Feed VECTA Equilyte Plus electrolyte mixture daily.
3. Administer VECTA Vitasel E orally, either as a drench or mixed in the feed every 28 days. However, in severe cases it
can be given more regularly on veterinary advice.
VECTA Vitasel E should not be administered where other forms of selenium are already being given.
Ideally, Vitasel E should be given 2-3 days prior to an event, or immediately after, so as to obtain the best results.
