I just wanted to add a recipe for this. I have a book "The orignal book of Horse Treats".People all over the place send in recipes and then it is apporved by a vet.
Here is a good electrolyte recipe.

INGREDIENTS

1 16 ounce container of table salt

2 11 ounce container of Morton Lite Salt

2 tablespoons of Epsom salts


Mix all the ingredients together thoroughly.
Dose: Use 1 1/2 tablespoons of electrolyte mix.You can place on top of grain.

If the horse needs a quick boot,miz 1 dose electrolytes with 4 tablespoons of pancake syrup and 4 tablespoons of lukewarm water. Put in a large syringe and squirt in the horse's mouth.

NOTE: When using electrolytes of any kind,fresh water MUST be available at all times.
