Designed specifically for endurance horses, Endura-Max™ is an electrolyte supplement formulated to restore key electrolytes lost in sweat, including sodium, chloride, and potassium.
The following are general guidelines. The actual amount of electrolyte supplementation needed will depend on the level of exercise, temperature, and humidity.
Because of the tremendous sweat loss during a race, an endurance horse should receive 2 oz the night before, 2 oz prior to starting, and 2 oz at every vet check.
Daily Supplementation of electrolytes to an endurance horse is discretionary. A normal maintenance intake for horses at rest in hot environments or those being transported in hot weather is 1 oz per day. Horses at moderate work levels should receive 2-3 ounces per day, and those in heavy training require 3-4 oz in separate feedings.
If a horse is unwilling to drink water, electrolytes should not be given without the supervision of a veterinarian.

Always provide horses receiving electrolyte supplementation with free-choice, clean water. Lack of adequate water in a diet supplemented with electrolytes may lead to dehydration and other serious metabolic disorders.
