horse grower

Hi Dr.getty

My horse is only 49inch high he is now 4yrs.old, may I know if there is a vitamins that helps him grow.

Re: horse grower

Hello “horselover,”

He is not likely to grow much more at his age. All you can do is to feed him as well as you can to offer him high quality protein (through grass and legume hays, or complete feeds), and enough vitamins and minerals to supplement his hay intake.

Without knowing his medical background, I’m not able to be more specific than that.

All the best,

Dr. Getty
