Copper, which is present in all body cells, aids in the absorption and utilisation of iron, for blood cell production. Copper is also necessary for several enzymes involved in the vital processes, as well as regulating the normal hair pigmentation.
Horses are very tolerant of copper but over supplementation can interfere with the absorption of zinc and iron.
A lack of copper can show as anaemia, poor growth, hair depigmentation, weight loss and some bone disorders.
If you are concerned that your horses are suffering from any of these symptoms, seek veterinary advice, as these symptoms may be a result of a condition unrelated to a copper deficiency. The recommended serving conforms to the EU limits for Copper supplementation.
