So i'm looking for some advice on the Triple Crown feed. I have heard alot of good things about it, and was considering switching my 9 year old gelding to it. He is currently on Phase 5, which is a high fat high fiber food (mostly aimed towards elderly horses)... and he doesn't need high fat (though he's at a good weight now). He was only on it as it was easier to mask medication in when he was sick. Now he's 100% healthy and i'm looking for a switch. My vet suggested not to put him back on sweet feed, which I didn't really want him back on anyways so that's okay.
My friend/ fellow boarder switched her 9 year old gelding to Triple Crown Complete Formula and we have both been noticing good results in him. He's even less grumpy!!! By ALOT since switching to it a month ago!
Now the thing is my vet STRONGLY suggested avoiding things with high calcium in it to try and avoid calcium build up in the bladder (he was sick for 3 months with two tears in his urethra we were struggling to clear up without surgery. Luckily we managed to! And though we don't know the for sure cause we want to try and avoid stones so it doesn't happen again!)
Now i'm not a horse feed expert by any means, and could really use some help!! On the site it says Calcium min is 0.75% and Calcium max is 1.25%.... is that average? Low? High?
Here's the sight if it helps!!:)
Any advice is appreciated!!
