Feeding Instructions

As with any new feed, introduce gradually over a week.

Use 100g a day per 100kg ideal (not actual) body weight, divided between two feeds. For example, 500g per day for a 500kg horse.

Quick soaking, use 2-2.5 parts water to 1 part feed.

For best results, feed MetaSlim as part of a complete Simple System diet.
