D-Carb balance is specifically formulated for horses predisposed to insulin resistance (IR) and/or an inability to metabolize high carbohydrate levels found in feed with high sugar content. Since high carbohydrate levels (found in grain and rich alfalfa hay) are often restricted in IR diets, it is important to provide essential mineral nutrients necessary for nutritional support.
D-Carb balance is designed for diets consisting of approximately 15 to 20 lbs. of timothy or bermuda grass type hay, no grain or small amounts and/or vitamins and trace minerals that would be lacking, given the restriction of grain and alfalfa type hay (both high in carbohydrates). Hay is normally fed at a rate of 1.5% of ideal body weight; 1,000 lb. horse should be fed 15 lbs. hay (hay should not contain more than 10% starch/sugar). Over starvation may often cause greater increase in insulin resistance. Given many variables and conditions, consult your veterinarian for specific ration and feeding levels.
D-Carb Balance is pelletized and flavored to enhance palatability.
Provide 2 ounces twice daily.
