Which friend would that be spyder?? And shine doesn't indicate health

Ration balancers aren't for everybody and not everybody can get them but they are 100 times better then most fotified feeds are the market espeically for those that don't want to spend HOURS figuring and mixing stuff

I'm new here - and I think I love you!!! :)

Most fortified feeds on the market are scary - just use google people! :) Ethoxyquin is in Pennfields...and I was just reading this on wellpet.com:

Science Diet and Eukanuba use ethoxyquin in their dry food It reduces the blood plasma level of Vit E, it also impairs Selenium (vit E keeps selenium at the +2 oxidation state and selenium reduces Vit E once it has been oxidized,thus 'recycling' it) Ethoxyquin also reverses active transport of glucose, causes cancer of the kidneys, liver, esophagus and stomach, caueses cycling problems in bitches, and motility in intact males, cardiomyopathies, skin and coat problems and 'trashes' the liver. In an internal memos from the FDA from 1959 (bless the freedom of information act) it was declared a poisonous and deleterious substance, but then a special ammendment to the Food and Cosmetic Act was passed in '59 and it was allowed in animal foods.


********

The only one really looking out for our animals is US.... a horse that is shiny today due to a flood of coat supplements is not necessarily the same horse that has a great topline, healthy teeth, and healthy kidney and liver function at 30.....
