Healthy Tummy Product
Description

A nutritionally balanced, medium-calorie fibre feed containing the latest ingredients known to promote gut health including alfalfa. 

Taking the latest ingredients known to promote gut health, including alfalfa grown in our own fields, Healthy Tummy is the ideal way to keep your horse healthy and happy.

At a semiar hosted by Dengie earlier this year, leading veterinary expert Professor Celia Marr from the world famous Rossdales Equine Hospital Diagnostic Centre in Newmarket, gave an update on Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome (EGUS).

Recent research suggests that once horses begin training their likelihood of developing gastric ulcers increases. 17-58% of competition and show horses in competitive work have ulcers and the most surprising results were that pleasure horses – 37-59% suffer from EGUS. While there are many possible causes, high concentrate diets and intense exercise have been identified as the trigger in many equines.

Feeding more fibre and reducing reliance on cereal based feeds can be beneficial and advice is that starch intake should be less than 2g per KG of bodyweight per day to reduce the risk of ulcers.

The new BETA approval mark for equines prone to EGUS created in conjunction with the VMD and launched earlier this year has been created to help owners identify feeds that are suitable for horses and ponies prone to Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome.

Key Benefits of Healthy Tummy:

  • Provides 11.5MJ/kg of Digestible Energy, which is comparable to a medium energy mix or cube
  • Made from pure alfalfa which is naturally low in sugar and starch and is proven to be a natural buffer to acidity in the digestive tract
  • Contains Protexin In-Feed Formula, which supplies prebiotics and yeast to promote a healthy microbial population vital for fibre digestion.
  • A high specification of vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins plus additional magnesium and calcium are included to help maintain optimal digestive health
  • Contains a unique blend of herbs including oregano, cinnamon and ginger which are believed to be powerful antioxidants
  • A light oil coating has been included for slow release energy and coat shine
  • Free from molasses and preservatives

Feeding directions:

For horses at rest or in light work:

Healthy Tummy is a nutritionally balanced feed containing all the vitamins and minerals your horse or pony needs. There is no need to add any mix, cubes or supplements as long as you are feeding the recommended levels.

For horses in moderate and hard work:

Feeding a high fibre diet is essential should your horse be suffering or have had ulcers in the past. Healthy Tummy can be fed alongside Dengie Alfa-Beet to increase energy intake to meet the requirements of harder work. Healthy Tummy can also be fed alongside mixes and cubes to help counteract the effects of using cereal based feeds.

The feeding rate for Healthy Tummy is 500g per 100kg of bodyweight when using as a complete feed.
*If using as the sole feed alongside forage.

Feed Safety & Quality

Ensuring quality, safety and sustainability
Everyone at Dengie is proud of our connection with the land and we are always mindful that we need to grow our crops as sympathetically as possible both for the benefit of our customers and to ensure the future sustainability of what we do. Our farmers are family farmers and they want to ensure there is a viable future for generations to come.

A Commitment to Quality

There are a number of organisations that Dengie are accredited with as part of our commitment to quality:

Feed Assurance Schemes

UFAS and FEMAS are voluntary schemes developed in response to demand for improved feed and food safety. Approval under the schemes provides independent verification that a company is meeting its legal obligations under general feed law. Dengie are approved under both UFAS and FEMAS as we grow and produce our own raw material.

The schemes are based on HACCP principles, an internationally recognized system of hazard analysis pioneered by space agency NASA. Over recent years HACCP has become a central requirement of Food and Feed safety legislation.

BETA NOPS

In 2009 the British Equestrian Trade Association introduced a code of practice relating to naturally occurring prohibited substances (NOPS). The aim of the code of practice is to identify those manufacturers who demonstrate due diligence in reducing the risk of contamination with NOPS. Due to the nature of some NOPS it is no longer possible to offer a guarantee that a product is free from them. Those companies that do are unlikely to be fully aware of the potential risks of contamination. Dengie are approved under the NOPS scheme. If you require more information about NOPS then please contact us on 01621841188 or send us an e-mail.

Use of GM Materials

No GM raw materials are used in our feeds and so they are suitable for feeding to horses kept on organic holdings or for those supplying muck to organic holdings. If you require a letter or statement to this effect for the Soil Association inspection please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots.
