UltraCruz® Equine Appetite Support Supplement for Horses

  • Prebiotics and probiotics help maintain digestive health
  • Glutamine supports metabolic processes
  • Helps balance gut microorganism populations
  • Can be useful for stressed horses and foals with a loss of appetite

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.

Pellet vs. Powder Supplement Formulations

Most UltraCruz® Equine Supplements are now available in pelletized formulations. By using pellets, rather than powder, we have been able to:

  • Ensure stability of active ingredients
  • Maximize product freshness
  • Reduce waste

All San Juan Ranch performance and breeding horses use UltraCruz® Equine pelletized products.

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.

Brady Weaver, 2017 NRCHA Stakes Open Champion


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!

Thank you for inquiring with Santa Cruz Animal Health. Unfortunately we are unable to make off label recommendations. This product is intended for horses and we recommend consulting with your vet before feeding this to sheep and goats. The Ultra Cruz line does have UltraCruz® Livestock Appetite Support for Cattle, Goats, Sheep and Pigs that is intended for livestock.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food is Good!!! I purchased Appetite Support for my sons older mare. She’s that horse, that never finishes her bucket no matter what you put on it. She’s passive in the pasture, happy to walk away for any food pile. 2 weeks ago I decided to try this, I wanted to see if she would just eat. She is eating!!! Still leaves some in her evening bucket in her stall, but so much better then before. Will even push the younger ones off hay now. I absolutely love this product. She has even gained a little wight!!! I can’t wait to see what the reminder of this bag will help her do!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the new pelleted formula! I've been using this product for quite some time but wasn't entirely thrilled with the fact that it was a powder, as I would sometimes find traces of it in the bottom of my horse's feeder. I just received another order of the product, which is now in pelleted form. I'm so pleased with this new formula: my horse loves the taste, and I don't find any traces of it in the bottom of my horse's feeder!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smells good! My show mare had begun to not clean up her feed which had never happened before. She is 9 and I have never her seen her not want feed and hay. I even tried enticing her with alfalfa hay but still not very interested in eating. Within two days after starting Ultracruz Equine Appetite Booster she was back to her old self. Now I keep her on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It works! My older stallion was getting picky with his food and losing weight. When I made sure it wasn't other problems such as teeth, sand, ulcers, I tried this product on recommendation of a friend. He did perk up and start eating more. He is on this product for several years now. It is a little pricey-that is what makes it a 4 star instead of 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy tummy! Thank you SC! My dressage horse goes off feed in the winter and Appetite Booster has kept eating! I have noticed a dramatic difference in his appetite and subsequently his mood during training. He is no longer tight and behind my leg; he has been a very willing horse during one of the worst winters we have had in years!
