Equine Wellness Results You Can Expect to See when Supplementing with Chia Seeds
Soaked chia seeds have been a natural option I have come to trust and utilize over the years, especially during times of digestive concern.
These amazing seeds can promote health by helping to soothe the GI tract and aid in the prevention of gastric ulcers and promote a balance of blood sugar levels.
The health benefits don’t stop there… Chia seeds can also provide support for allergy relief, improved coat, skin, hoof health, joints, and muscles.
When I feed chia seeds, I prefer to soak them, but since I often feed a soaked beet pulp shred or soaked grass pellet, this is convenient for me.
Our Mission Here at Equine Essential Wellness is Promoting Natural Horse Health-
In my content, I share the story of supporting my mare through health concerns, naturally, after traditional methods had failed and euthanasia became the only recommendation veterinarians had for her. Part of our mission has to do with the success I had in helping her, and wanting that for your horse…
Pokey struggled with #3 on this list for years and yet I was told she was just lazy and it was a training/behavioral problem. Don't let others misguide you or silence what your horse wants you to know. Click Here and download the guide now.
