Salt Supplement Ups Intake

In a Purina-sponsored study, horses drank more water in cooler weather when fed a salt supplement as compared to when they consumed sodium voluntarily via a salt block. (Wintertime water intake can help lessen the risk of impaction colics.) Slightly warmed drinking water also upped the horses’ consumption. The study involved Purina’s new HydraSalt supplement; for details, contact your local Purina representative
