EQ-FUEL PASTE FOR HORSE (L-CARNITINE/DEXPANTHENOL)

EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse Description

If you anticipate that your horse will race, exercise, or participate in any activity that involves an intense work-out, your veterinarian may suggest a prescription for EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse or the generic L-Carnitine/Dexpanthenol. This will help prevent your horse from having any problems with relaxing their muscles after the event. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Prepare Your Horse Before any Strenuous Activity

L-Carnitine is a building block for proteins called an amino acid that is naturally produced in your body and all living cells. This helps to reduce a build-up of lactic acid during racing or exercising in order to delay muscle fatigue so your horse’s endurance is improved. Dexpanthenol is vitamin B5 and is usually obtained through the diet you feed your horse. When you supplement vitamin B5 before any physical activity, proteins, fats, and carbs are converted into energy. Vitamin B5 will also help to reduce any stress your horse experiences after the competition.

Conditions Treated by EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse

When you are preparing your horse for a life of competition, it takes time to condition the animal. Make sure you start slow and that the horse’s diet is sufficient to provide a proper balance of electrolytes and minerals. If your horse is not in condition for the strenuous activity, the result could be a condition that is known as ‘tying-up’. This is one name given to a muscle disorder that can have an effect on their endurance; others are Monday morning disease, azoturia, and exertional rhabdomyolysis.

Whatever you want to call it, it means your horse is experiencing an increase of lactate and decrease of the pH in their muscles. The higher lactate level makes it difficult for the horse’s muscles to relax after contraction and fatigue sets in. Your horse may not be able to move if a large muscle group stays contracted for an extended period of time. Be patient with training and talk to your vet about EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse. You may also want to consult your vet about L-Carnitine/Dexpanthenol and testing if you suspect your animal has Equine Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy and tying up is a chronic symptom.

Before Giving EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse

Discuss any risks with your veterinarian before giving EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse before rigorous exercise or competing. Supplementation with EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse may not be recommended for brood mares in their final trimester or during early lactation as L-Carnitine levels in the milk may be unsafe for newborn foals.

Precautions and Proper Use of EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse

Do not change your horse’s diet while giving EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse without consulting with your veterinarian as a dosage change may be required. Directions for giving EQ-Fuel Paste for Horse may differ if your horse is ‘tying-up’ as a result of Equine Polysaccharide Storage Myopathy (EPSM) and not from strenuous exercise.
