Equine Omega Complete is a calorie-dense fatty acid supplement with a 5:1 ratio of Omega-6 to Omega-3 fats. This oil provides cool energy for performance horses and supports weight gain in hard keepers.

Equine Omega Complete is a fat supplement containing a blend of soybean oil and fish oil. It is typically served as a top-dressing on grain and other supplemental feeds.

According to the manufacturer, Equine Omega Complete contains non-GMO expeller-pressed soy oil, human-grade fish oil, and 10,000 IU of natural Vitamin E per serving. Vitamin E functions as an antioxidant to protect against rancidity and improve shelf-life.

Equine Omega Complete is purported to reduce joint and tissue inflammation, improve gut and skin health, support respiratory function and support healthy hooves. It is also purported to have benefits for horses with allergies, and conditions linked to Vitamin E deficiency, such as Equine Motor Neuron Disease, Equine Protozoal Myelitis, and White Muscle Disease.

By replacing starches in the diet, fat supplements like Equine Omega Complete can improve metabolic health and reduce excitability in horses sensitive to grains. Choosing fat as an energy source also has benefits for gut health, including reducing the risk of hindgut acidosis, ulcers, and colic.

Equine Omega Complete delivers high amounts of polyunsaturated fatty acids, including omega-3, -6, and -9 acids. It contains the omega-3 fatty acids docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicospentanoic acid (EPA) from fish oil, which provide anti-inflammatory effects.

The overall ratio of omega-3 to omega-6 to omega-9 fatty acids is approximately 1:5:2. It is important to balance the ratio of anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats to pro-inflammatory omega-6 fats in the equine diet.

Exercising horses can be adapted to high-fat diets to support exercise endurance and recovery. Unlike starch and other carbohydrates, fatty acids are metabolized slowly to support exercise over a longer period of time.

Horses with insulin resistance, Equine Metabolic Syndrome (EMS), or Cushing’s/PPID can benefit from replacing grain in their diet with fat if additional energy is needed. This helps to support healthy blood glucose levels to better regulate metabolic function.

The manufacturer recommends a maintenance dose of 4 oz (120 mL) per day for a 500 KG (1100 LB) horse. They recommend a feeding rate of 1 oz per 300 LB of bodyweight. Showing or travelling horses are recommended to use a 6 to 8 oz serving, split into two meals.

Fat should be added to the diet gradually over a two- to three-week period. The total daily feeding rate depends on the reasons for using this product and can be increased based on caloric need. Fat should not exceed 8% in the total diet, unless under the guidance of a qualified nutritionist.
