Feeding Guide**

Hygain® ZERO® contains concentrated vitamin and mineral levels, however if intake is below feeding guide additional supplementation with a low intake balancing formula such as HYGAIN® BALANCED® or HYGAIN® SPORTHORSE® should be considered.

Fat – Hygain recommends the use of HYGAIN® RBO® Equine Performance Oil in cases such as PSSM or Tying-Up where horses may benefit from additional fat in their diet for concentrated slow release energy and general conditioning.

Electrolytes – In warmer climates and in cases of Tying-Up, Hygain recommends the use of HYGAIN® REGAIN® electrolyte replacer to replenish the mineral salts lost in sweat.

What's Inside

ZERO®

Prebiotic

Prebiotics incorporated in HYGAIN® ZERO® have a defined mode of action, promoting a healthy gut and supporting natural defences, essential for optimum health and performance.

Bio-Available Selenium

Selenium acts as an antioxidant to prevent fatty acid oxidation which can cause tissue damage. Research has shown that an organic form of selenium, is more readily absorbed and retained than selenium in inorganic forms.

Natural Vitamin E

This unique and highly stable form of Natural Vitamin E known as RRR-a-tocopherol is up to 5 times more bio available and potent than regular synthetic sources of Vitamin E. Research has shown that this form of Natural Vitamin E provides higher retention levels in plasma further aiding antioxidant, immune, cardiovascular, circulatory, neuromuscular and reproductive functions.

Biotin

Biotin, a water soluble vitamin is required by the enzymes responsible for protein synthesis and as a result is an essential vitamin for the healthy growth of hair and hooves. Research has shown that biotin improves skin and coat condition, increases hoof integrity and is widely recommended by farriers, veterinarians and scientists.

Guide

FEEDING TIPS

Hygain® ZERO® is an innovative pelletised feed formulated with ingredients that provide a diet high in soluble fibres and low in starches and sugars.

Research suggests that diets high in Non Structural Carbohydrates (NSC’s), starches and sugars such as those present in cereal grains and cereal grain by-products (eg. bran, pollard) can cause or contribute to the severity of conditions such as Cushings Disease, Laminitis, Tying-Up, PSSM, Obesity, Insulin Resistance, Equine Metabolic Syndrome and other behavioural issues.

Hygain® ZERO® is a complete feed ration for horses and ponies that may benefit from a diet low in starches and sugars.

Hygain® ZERO® is a high fibre fortified formula designed to be fed with quality pasture approximating 1.5% of total body weight per day and where necessary, the diet may also be supplemented with hay. Soaking of hay is recommended for horses prone to starch/sugar related conditions (eg. Laminitis, Cushings, PSSM etc). If feeding oaten or wheaten hay ensure that grain content is minimal. The use of chaff is not required.

  1. Introduce HYGAIN® ZERO® to your horse’s diet gradually over a 7-14 day period.
  2. Feed by weight and not by volume.
  3. Feed a minimum of 1.5% of your horse’s body weight daily as roughage.
  4. Horses have a small stomach, so feed little and often.
  5. Ensure horses have access to clean water.
  6. Do not add additional vitamins or minerals unless directed by a veterinarian or nutritionist.
  7. For dietary recommendations and nutritional solutions contact HYGAIN.

Testimonials

Rosanna Relton - Grand Prix Dressage Rider

"After my old boy was retired and facing the onset of Cushings Disease, he was transitioned to Zero. Being low starch and with such a low sugar content, I have visibly seen the early symptoms of Cushings reduce. I am confident that keeping him on Zero indefinitely will continue to slow this onset and I’m encouraged by his excitement for his breakfast and dinner – he seems to be quite happy with the taste!"
