Ingredients (for 1 fl. oz. - 30ml.);
crude fat 85%
selenium 0.1 mg
vit A 4050 iu
vit D 255 iu
vit E 45 mg
vit B1 1.05 mg
vit B2 1.3 mg
vit B6 0.55 mg
vit B12 13 ug
biotin 27.5 ug
niacin 5.6 mg
pantothenic acid 6.2 mg
folic acid 0.12 mg
digestible energy 210 kcal

Oil (canola I think) is a high level of polyunsaturated & monsaturated fatty acids (93%) with Omega 3 & Omega 6 fatty acids.

The vitamin B12 and Biotin have a different symbol - "u" is the closest I could get on my keyboard. The actual symbol shows a descending tail on the left side of the "u".

Thanks, Dr. O, I appreciate any information. Joyce

This is a high fat supplement with small amounts of vitamins. If the horse is getting pasture or fresh hay, the vitamins would not be of any benefit.
