Glanzen Complete

Dr. Getty, Can you tell me how much Glanzen Complete would be fed daily to a mini (250#) that's on beetpulp, bermuda and alfalfa? He's 7. The other one is 2 yrs old, weighs about the same, but is getting Safe Choice along with beetpulp, bermuda and alfalfa.

Thank you so much for your wonderful web site and inciteful information.

Re: Glanzen Complete

Hi Pam,

I am so pleased to be able to offer this new product, Glanzen Complete. You would not need to feed it with a commercial ration, such as Safe Choice, unless you are only feeding a small amount of Safe Choice. But, if you are feeding it according to directions, there are already vitamins and mineral added, so a comprehensive multiple such as Glanzen Complete would not be necessary. Sometimes, other individual supplementation is warranted, however, to meet the particular horse's needs.

Regarding the dosage for your minis... I recommend feeding 3/4 of a scoop (this is 1.5 ounces by weight and 3 ounces by volume). (The scoop that is provided is 4 ounces by volume, but it weighs only 2 ounces.)

Thanks so much for writing and for the lovely compliment!
