Vitamin B-12 in conjunction with Folic Acid is essential for normal formation of red blood cells and also may aid in stimulating the appetite and growth.
It is indispensable for the formation of individual amino acids. Insufficient B12 can lead to anaemia and poor feed utilisation.
Vitamin B-12's most important functions are to assist in the production of red blood cells and in the utilization of proteins, fats and carbohydrates in feed. B-12 helps convert propionic acid, a primary volatile fatty acid produced via synthesis in the gut. Many horsemen believe that B-12 builds hemoglobin in red blood cells, which increases the oxygen transport capacity of the blood, thus making supplementation useful for racehorses.
DEFICIENCY: Vitamin B-12 is the only B vitamin which is not produced by plants. It is generally accepted that horses that are stressed, anemic, have severe parasitic conditions or are in generally poor health may benefit from supplementation. Horses who ingest poor quality forages may also benefit. Symptoms of deficiency in other species include anemia, poor appetite, weight loss, irritability, poor growth, impaired reproductive performance, rough hair coat, hindquarter incoordination and unsteady gait. Neurological problems have also been associated with B-12 deficiency.
Molasses and Apple flavoured.
