Re: Poulin MVP

Hello Meghan,

Yes, your plan is very good -- hay pellets plus the supplements, Glanzen Complete and Quiessence, will work well. You may not need the oil since Glanzen Complete is flaxseed meal based. Feed 1 scoop per 400 lbs of body weight.

You can always add oil later if more calories are needed.

All the best,

Hi Dr. Getty
Thanks so much for replying! I have been experimenting with canola oil and hay pellets for Nova instead of the hay cubes. He seems to really like the hay pellets with the oil so I was wondering would this combination along with the glanzen complete and salt be better then the Poulin MVP? Then adding Quiessence for magnesium help? He has been on the Quiessence before and it worked well for him. I just want to do what is best for him and the glanzen complete seems to be the better product. Thanks again for your time!
