Copper supplement for horses
Copper and selenium are essential trace elements for horses and play a key role when selecting health supplements for foals. Copper and selenium support bone development and muscle health to ensure a great start in terms of growth and performance.
Across UK and Irish soils, copper and selenium deficiencies are common – making grass grown on these soils is also deficient. If forage and grazing make up a large portion of your horse’s diet, this means that intakes of selenium and copper may also be low.
Copperite is a palatable powdered supplement with a highly available source of copper, fortified with selenium and vitamin E. Formulated for the support of growth and performance. It is recommended to complement diets deficient in copper and selenium, or for any horse who may benefit from increased levels in the diet.
Key benefits of Copperite:
- Optimum levels of copper and selenium essential to support normal bone development in youngstock. Maintains muscle health and coat colour.
- Chelated copper, ensuring copper is more easily digested and absorbed by the horse for maximum benefit.
- Fortified with vitamin E, an essential antioxidant which also supports the body’s ability to utilise selenium.
- Dust free alfalfa base, sweetened with fennel and vanilla extract; an appetising aroma that appeals to all horses, including fussy eaters.
