Cat.....if they've been eating the same for some time, it will be beneficial. And I would sooner or later look into a different vit/ min supplement which supplies enough for maintenance, after they have it restored.

Well my order has shipped already. I think I like this company already. I will update with how it goes after a few days.

Wow, shocked to see that Mag is not included in the ration balancers. Guess I will look into this now. What about pill form from the local GNC?

Look into the MagRestore. They have an intradermal version which sounds like it could help Snickers. I will get it for blimp once the Remission is finished. We should have it within a couple of days, they're in Petaluma, I think.
Don't know about the pills, it depends on how much mg is in there and which one, the oxide or the chloride.

Not sure what intradermal means but I looked at the GNC stuff and it was all over the place. And pretty low doses and mostly the chelate stuff. I think it would be cheaper to go with the Magrestore.

Oh and the shipping in a flat rate box for the 135 servings is just under $13.

Intradermal means through the skin. The powder, or flakes, are dissolved in warm water and the horse gets a sponge bath. Especially back, neck and croup, where the large muscles are. Let dry for 20 minutes, then either hose or wipe of eventual crusty leftovers. Can also be sprayed on from what I read on the magnesium4horses site.
Large muscles =Snickers

Ohhhh I saw those. I was wondering why you would give them a bath in it lol.

Now you know
Makes sense. It goes directly to the muscle.

Yes it does. Interesting stuff. I'm hoping it does good things for Lizzy.
