Purina Equine Senior Active Horse Feed, the trusted original senior horse feed, has been helping senior horses live healthy, long lives since its national launch in 1993. Today’s horses are staying active longer than ever, and new findings suggest that healthy aging horses may benefit from a higher-calorie diet designed with controlled starch and sugar and balanced nutrients. So Purina introduced Equine Senior®Active Healthy Edge® (now Equine Senior® Active) horse feed, precisely formulated to meet the unique nutritional needs of moderately active senior horses.But Purina’s Ph.D. Equine Nutritionists and Veterinarians never stop researching new ways to address the specific needs of aging horses. Amplify®
high-fat nugget and ActivAge™ prebiotic are just two of the senior horse nutrition breakthroughs included in Equine Senior® Active horse feed.

- Any feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 10 days. Mix the new feed with the old, gradually increasing the amount of the new feed while decreasing an equal amount of the old. Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 1 pound per day for each horse. Feed at regular times, at least twice daily, with three daily feedings preferred. Be sure to weigh your feed using a scale. A small scale can be purchased in the fishing department of many sporting stores.
- Reduce and/or delay feeding a horse that is hot, excited, or showing pain, or has a fever or diarrhea. Consult your veterinarian if any problems arise. Prevent rapid eating.
- Let horses feed in natural position from large feed containers.
- Have plenty of fresh, clean water available at all times.
- Store in a dry, well-ventilated area protected from rodents and insects. Do not feed moldy or insect-infested feed to animals because it may cause illness or death.
- Observe horses daily. Consult your veterinarian for proper preventative health care. Maintain a regular deworming and vaccination program.
- Feeding added selenium resulting in total diet levels in excess of 0.3 ppm is prohibited.
