High work intensities can increase heat production 40 to 60 times over that of basal metabolism. Heat production of this magnitude can limit performance. The major pathway for heat dispersion in the horse is sweat loss. Sweating results in the loss of not only water but also essential electrolytes. If these losses are not replaced, metabolic imbalances may result in a lactic acid build up, ‘tying up’ syndrome, dehydration and decreased performance., therefore The replacement of electrolytes after sweating is essential.
ISOPRO is naturally flavoured with aniseed, which is highly palatable to the horse.
Fresh drinking water should be available at all times.
