Re: Best way to fatten a horse

Hello Crystal,

Well, once you have ruled out any medical problems, I would suggest you start by adding Ration Plus to his diet. This prebiotic boosts the overall health of the bacteria that live in the horse’s hind gut, thereby allowing more nutrients to be absorbed into the bloodstream. I have had a great deal of success using this product for weight gain. You can read more about it on my website store.

So, keep me posted on how he is doing!

All the best,

Dr. Getty
