Chelated Copper Gel offers nutritional support that really works. Copper is essential for iron uptake and horses deficient in it can suffer from problems including anaemia, fungal skin disease, seedy toe, heavy worm infestations, and weak bones, as well as crib-biting and coat discolouration.
It comes in an easy-to-feed gel that is given by syringe to minimize waste and ensure that the horse gets the exact dose needed. This unique formula greatly enhances the absorption of copper into the horse’s body.
