CdG COPPER - Copper for horses
CdGCOPPER contains Bioplex´s® chelated organic copper, which is in a natural and efficiently absorbed form.
Copper is needed for the functioning of enzymes related to energy metabolism, the functioning of the nervous system, the skeleton, and the synthesis and maintenance of elastic tissues. Copper is an essential ingredient in maintaining the body's own collagen production.
Copper also plays an important role in the formation of hemoglobin and the function of red blood cells, so it has an effect on the absorption and utilization of iron.
Adequate intake of copper and zinc is particularly important for the normal growth of foals. In addition, it is important that their ratio is correct, because too much zinc weakens the absorption of copper. The copper-zinc ratio in horses should be 1:4.
Lack of copper can cause growth disorders in foals and in adult horses, e.g. lack of performance, anemia, weakening coloration of the coat, digestive disorders and the urge to lick. Anemic horses should always have their copper intake checked.
There are only small amounts of copper in basic feed, so the horse should get it from mineral preparations.
Horse 500 kg:
* 1 measure approx. 5 g, contains copper approx. 125 mg.
* With the dosage of one measure, the product lasts 60 days (0.34 €/day).
10 ml = 5 g = 125 mg copper.
With 1 measure, the package lasts about 60 days. The amount of copper obtained from other food should be taken into account in the dosage.
CdGCOPPER offers better bioavailability than inorganic minerals. The chelated, i.e. organic form bound to amino acids, guarantees good absorption, thanks to which a smaller amount is sufficient.
The average daily copper requirement of a horse is about 125 mg per day, foals about 75 mg.
