Re: Triple Crown Lite and Glanzen Lite

Hi Kimberly,

Yes, the full dose of BioFlax Ultra will be fine if she needs a strong level of hoof support. If her feet are generally healthy and you'd like a lesser amount of nutritional support, you can decrease the BioFlax Ultra or go with BioFlax20 next time. But, it is fine to feed the full amount of either one with the TC product.

All the best,

Thank you Dr. Getty.

I have upped her TC lite to the 4 lbs and have been giving her the BioFlax ultra. This seems to be a good plan for her. As a snack she gets a cup of soaked beet pulp with a few alfalfa cubes. Even though she tends to be an easy keeper (when not in regular work) she is now working 6 days a week and needed the additional calories.

I just wanted to make sure that I should give her the full dose of BioFlax ultra with the 4 lbs of TCLite.

Thank you!
