As you horse gets older, he will tend to become more fragile since his general metabolism will tend to weaken, mainly because he is working less and this leads to loss of muscle mass. In addition, older horses are often put out to pasture, meaning that they are more vulnerable to outdoor hazards, such as rain, wind, changing terrain (ground often hard in summer and slippery in winter) and changes of temperature.
All this generally leads to a loss of condition in your elderly horse, as well as the development or worsening of problems such as stiffness, weak hooves, etc. The Bonutron Senior complete formula will therefore help you support your horse during this stage of his life, with its composition rich in minerals, trace elements and vitamins appropriate for older horses, along with probiotics, plant extracts and a component to secure the ration.
Bonutron Senior contains an ideal mixture of minerals, 9 vitamins, 4 trace elements and 3 amino acids to ensure optimum balance of your ageing horse's feed ration. In addition to these ingredients, the formula also contains a probiotic, Yea Sacc (Saccharomyces cerevisiae yeasts), plant extracts, including meadowsweet, white willow and Chrysanthellum plus a bonus ingredient to secure the ratio, Mycosorb A+ .
BONUTRON Senior has been specially developed for ageing horses with a reduced level of work or who have retired. For horses and ponies that have maintained a high level of activity, prefer Bonutron Sport Pro or Bonutron Leisure.

Ideally, Bonutron Senior should be used all year long. If you opt to use it as a periodic treatment course, we recommend that you target higher-risk periods for your horse, such as changes of season or during the winter when your horse needs extra support.
With Bonutron Senior, you are choosing a complete natural feed supplement for your horse. Mineral, vitamin and trace element requirements are covered by its unique formula and you are also guaranteeing maximum comfort for your old horse thanks to the presence of probiotics (Yea Sacc), since the action of 3 plants (white willow, meadowsweet and Chrystanthellum) reduces ageing-related stiffness, and securing the feed ration. It should also be noted that the Bonutron range is recommended by vets.
Of course. In the event of more intense requirements, don’t hesitate to combine different feed supplements. For example, if you also want to provide more intensive joint support, you can add Harpagyl.
