TopSpec Electrolytes are designed to help compensate for electrolyte loss after heavy sweating, feeding them correctly will benefit the horse.
This high salt formula is fabulously flavoured with wildberry.
Some minerals are also called electrolytes. This is because when dissolved in body fluids they carry spare ions which give them an electrical charge. Electrolytes use this charge to help control the water balance in a horse, trying to maintain a sufficiently hydrated status at all times. Electrolytes also play an important role in muscle function and through their role in hydration, both temperature regulation and the transport of nutrients and waste products throughout the horse’s body.
If electrolytes are not added to a horse’s diet many problems may occur including dehydration. Dehydration can be life-threatening and is frequently performance limiting, with colic and ‘Tying-Up’ the most well known consequences.
A horse has only to become mildly dehydrated in order to lose performance, sometimes reported as a lack of stamina and slow recovery rates. TopSpec Electrolytes should always be added in addition to any salt already in the diet and not instead of that salt. The addition of salt to the diet should be sufficient for horses only sweating lightly. Salt-licks should always be available 24/7.
Divide the daily amount equally amongst meals and mix well. It is recommended that this electrolyte preparation is used for at least two days after sweating.

We aim to dispatch all orders received before 2pm the same working day (with the exception of some items that clearly show a delayed dispatch notice on the product image).
The order may also be delivered to your place of work or left in a safe place at the chosen delivery address (safe place does not require a signature but is left at the customers own risk). Please be aware all orders require a signature upon delivery, unless requested otherwise. Delivery charges are calculated on the delivery weight that we assign to a product. This may differ from the actual weight of the product, for example, in instances where the bulky nature of the product means increased postage costs apply. If there is no one in to sign for the delivery and a safe place has not been selected a card will be left and an automatic re-delivery will be attempted the next working day. If for a second time the delivery has not been signed for a second card will be left detailing how to re-arrange delivery. If no attempt is made to re-arrange delivery, the order will returned to us. If the order is returned to us after the second card attempt we will incur a charge which may be passed on to the customer.
