WHAT’S DIFFERENT ABOUT PROKALM?

WHAT?

  • An innovation in managing stress and anxiety in horses allowing them to perform at their potential
  • Rapid acting and effective calming supplement
  • See results in as little as 15-30 minutes from feeding
  • A unique combination of herb extracts and amino acids
  • Does not contain valerian, magnesium or tryptophan
  • ProKalm does not sedate or affect gait or performance

WHY?

  • However well you manage horses, they are all individuals
  • Once horses become anxious they may develop behaviours that make managing them difficult
  • Stress and anxiety over long periods can also lead to greater susceptibility to infections, gastric ulceration and loss of condition
  • Other stress related problems can include failure to train properly, poor recovery from exercise and competition and loss of performance
  • ProKalm reduces anxiety leading to better control, better concentration, relaxation and easier management

WHEN?

  • For any stress related problems or stressful conditions
  • ProKalm is perfect for “taking the edge off” horses
  • At moderate intake ProKalm is suitable for more demanding situations
  • The highest level of intake can be used for horses that are difficult to handle, for example during clipping, shoeing, travelling, backing, etc
  • ProKalm can be fed as required, either for an isolated situation such as shoeing or competing or can be fed daily to achieve a sustained reduction in anxiety
  • Uses of ProKalm include: Aggressive behaviour, Anxiety, Bleeders (EIPH), Breaking to saddle/harness, Starting stalls, Bolting, Box rest, Box-walking, Clipping, Covering (mares or stallions), Dangerous horses, Dentistry, Difficult horses, Introduction to a new herd, Introduction to a new yard, Massage, Problem horses, Physiotherapy, Rearing, Rehabilitation, Shoeing, Stress, To aid training, To improve concentration in competition, Transportation, Turning out after box rest, Vaccinations, Vet visits, Weaving, Wind sucking

HOW?

  • ProKalm is best given in feed on a regular basis
  • The effects of a single dose can begin within 30 minutes and last for up to 8 hours
  • The amount given can be varied to get the desired effect
  • Some horses require higher doses than others
  • For a strong calming effect, e.g. to clip, shoe, box or when first turning out, give 2-4 scoops for a 500kg horses in feed or mix with a little water and syringe around 1-2h before peak effect is required

 

  • For a mild-moderate calming effect , e.g. for riding, travelling, etc give 1-2 scoops for a 500kg horse in feed or mix with a little water and syringe around 1-2h before peak effect is required
  • For sustained calming over time, for anxious horses or those with vices e.g. cribbing, give 0.5 to 2 scoops for a 500kg horse in both morning and evening feeds for at least 7 days
  • For first time use we strongly recommend feeding 2 x 25ml scoops per day split between morning and evening feed for a 500kg horse
  • If the effect is too strong then reduce the dose
  • If after 1-2 days the effect is not strong enough then increase to 4 x 25ml scoops per day and up to 6 x 25ml scoops per day after a further 1-2 days

AND?

  • Why not magnesium? There is no scientific evidence that magnesium has any calming effect in horses
  • Why not valerian? It is illegal under FEI and rules of racing
  • Why not tryptophan? Tryptophan signals to the body that it is exhausted and has a negative effect on performance
  • Why not acepromazine (ACP)? ACP during exercise increases risk of in-coordination, stumbling and injury
  • Tested to be free from the prohibited substances caffeine, theobromine, theophylline, hyoscine, hordenine, morphine and atropine
  • Proven in trials at Hartpury College
  • Recent double-blind placebo controlled trials by Dr Sian Lawson in dressage horses showed a significant increase in stride length, vertical motion and judge’s scores on ProKalm
  • Can be effective in horses with stereotypical behaviour
  • Does not contravene FEI rules or rules of racing
  • Scoop included
  • See testimonials
  • Available in 192g trial pouch, 60g syringe or 1.1kg tub
