Activiron Paste 60ml tube
Activiron™ Paste is a highly bio-available oral iron supplement for horses on grain based diets or where an iron supplement is required. Activiron™ Paste contains sodium feredetate, a new iron compound to Australia. Each 20mL dose contains 400mg Iron (Fe) as ferric sodium EDTA (NaFe EDTA) a highly soluble and highly absorbed form of iron in a palatable high energy paste.
Unlike other forms of iron which can be poorly absorbed, Sodium feredetate has a protective coating of EDTA molecules that prevent the binding of iron by phytates (found in grain-based diets) and allows the iron to be released and absorbed in the small intestine. Activiron™ Paste is highly palatable with a caramel flavour and has no metallic odours or aftertaste. Activiron™ Paste is safe and effective and will not interact with other vitamins and minerals.
Directions for use:
Remove the cap and rotate the ring setting to the required dose amount. To administer, place the tube of Activiron Paste into the side of the mouth and deposit the required dose of Activiron Paste over the back of the tongue until swallowed. Activiron Paste can also be added to the horse's feed.
Pack size: 60ml tube. Each tube contains 3 doses of Activiron Paste.
Horses in fast work & racing: 20ml of Activiron Paste three times a week for two weeks or as directed.
