Vitamin A help please.

My horse had a terrible case of rain rot last year, and I just found two patches of it yesterday, even though it's under his blanket.

I already feed Big Sky Mineral and Command FT probiotic.

I am not educated enough about this type of thing, and it's clear that he needs an extra Vit A, but I don't want to overdose anything. When I look for Vit A online, it's in with other supplements.

Any thoughts/suggestions would be appreciated.

I feed a scoop of Dumor Gold every day. Yeh its a multivitamin but it has enough A in it that it keeps the rain rot off.

Carrots. Great for vitamin A.

Milk Thistle oil. The best natural source of A vit there is, in my opinion. Also provides them with fatty acids and other valuable vitamins.

PaintHorseMares, vitamin A from carrots can be digested only if the carrots are fed with oil, so, if we give carrots as a source of vitamins, it is good to add some cold pressed linseed oil to them.
