Horse Hair Testing for 32 Elements with Supporting Nutritional Supplement and Dietary Advice

Equine hair analysis: get this done by taking a small sample of hair, this is then sent to a lab for screening, it reveals not only ratios of minerals, but also provides information regarding the horse's metabolic rate, the adrenal and thyroid glandular status, metabolic type and also suggests horse immune system supplements, vitamins and minerals.

We were often asked, "Do you know where I can find the location of an equine nutritionist test can you tell me where I should go"? Therefore, we decided to add this test for horse owners, managers and vets in the UK.

This test can help you understand your horse's nutrition requirements and may be useful for trainers or buyers who wish to learn about the biochemical profile of their horses and if they are lacking any nutrients such as selenium, calcium and magnesium supplements for horses for example.

Tissue mineral testing of a horse's hair can aid in measuring mineral retention; it may also help to determine the best supplements for feeds (if required) and more importantly, what is not required in order to avoid nutritionally induced deficiencies or imbalances and digestive problems.

The analysis test is easy to conduct with full instructions include and free return address envelope.

Understanding your horse's biochemistry

If you are a horse breeder, it can be an invaluable tool for screening for nutritional deficiencies and heavy metals in brood mares; it can aid and assist in training and performance.

The concern about the possibility of toxic metals being present in feed or pasture and the potential for bioaccumulation is a cause for concern as toxins can be passed from mare to foal.

Avoiding the passing of heavy metals will lead to a reduction in birth abnormalities and safer pregnancies and healthier foals.

Element NameElement Symbol
MercuryHg
BerylliumBe
UraniumU
CadmiumCd
AluminiumAl
ArsenicAs
LeadPb

Elements listed above are toxic these "heavy metals" can interfere with a horse's normal biological processes and biochemical functions. Because they are present in the environment, they are present in all biological systems.

They are poisonous to horse's, ideally they should not be present in their bodies in any quantity as they are injurious to health, excretion of them if found is advised to avoid bioaccumulation, either by detoxing or through a change of diet or vitamins and minerals supplementation.

Elements listed above are required by the horses to reach optimum performance levels; they have been widely studied and are known to essential for many biological functions within horses.

They play a part in many functions including the endocrine system, muscular activity, maintaining the integrity of the skeleton and joints, reproduction and overall development. They must be replenished through feeds or vitamins and minerals supplementation.
