UltraCruz® Equine Appetite Support Supplement for Horses is a balanced formula of prebiotics, probiotics, glutamine and Aspergillus oryzae - a direct-fed microbial that improves feed utilization by breaking down sugar, which increases energy. This supplement helps stimulate appetite and maintain digestive health in horses. UltraCruz® Equine Appetite Support Supplement for Horses can be beneficial to use during weaning and for horses with a poor appetite. Provided as a palatable, easy-to-use pellet.
A healthy horse's body is host to billions of bacteria of varying types and these bacteria are crucial to help keep the horse's gut functioning normally. If these bacteria are unbalanced, the horse may not digest nutrients properly.
Prebiotics are sources of non-digestible, soluble fiber that serve as food for beneficial bacteria in the intestine. Prebiotics, unlike probiotics, do not contain live bacteria and work by providing food for existing bacteria, which supports their growth.
L-Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body, especially in muscle tissue. Glutamine is involved in more metabolic processes than any other amino acid, including building muscle, repairing intestinal tissue and enhancing the immune system.
Pre-measured single servings of your horse's supplements for fast feeding, autoshipped for convenience and accuracy.

I started using UltraCruz Equine Appetite Support along with UltraCruz Equine Advanced Gastric Support on my young show horses. Even when the pressure is on, they stay on their feed which allows them to have the energy they need to perform at the highest levels.

I have used UltraCruz® Equine Appetite Support on three different horses now. One was almost three years ago. Didn't matter what we put in front of him he wasn't going to eat. So we started by putting this in a syringe and giving it twice a day. After three days he started to eat (had him on Safe Choice Performance) after a week we could put the powder on his feed. With in a month he had gained all his weight back and was in much better health during his healing process.
Next (photo attached) is a broodmare we got in, she was extremely thin and we started her on the Appetite Booster after our successes with the first one. While she was eating she wasn't eating enough we started her on it and same thing in a few days we noticed a increase in her intake and within a week she was eating twice as much. She is also 24 years old.
Next is my very nice reining Derby gelding. He lost 318 lbs in two and a half weeks. Part of his routine given twice daily is the Appetite Booster. He was not eating anything and we did 3 packets twice a day syringe with his other meds and he started to slowly eat. We knew with all he had going on it was not going to be an immediate huge increase of food. Now 30 days later he is eating all that we put in front of him and is eating his Booster in his feed.
I recommend this product to everyone who has a horse that needs to gain weight or has a difficult or picky eater. This product has been a life saver and I stand behind it all the way. Thank you Santa Cruz for assisting with my horses needs!
Buddy, my husband's 21 year old Tennessee Walker, has had gastrointestinal issues for years. We have spent a small fortune on veterinary services and supplements trying to solve the problem. Once I found UltraCruz® Skin and Allergy, UltraCruz® Advanced Gastric Support and UltraCruz® Appetite Support I noticed an improvement each time I added one to his diet.
I purchased UltraCruz® Equine Appetite Support for a orphaned weanling that I rescued recently. He wasn't a very good eater when he first arrived at my house and was in poor condition. He gobbled the pellets right up and then started to eat better almost the next day! It has only been a few weeks since I started this colt on this product and I can already see him starting to bloom!
My warmblood gelding has been on UltraCruz® Appetite Support for almost a month. He has always been less interested in eating during the fall and winter months. It took him a couple days to get used to eating his meal with this supplement in it; but now, he is an extremely eager eater! He gobbles up all of his meals and all of his hay! He also seems more willing in his work and less sensitive in the flank area. Thank you for yet another great product!
