Basic care: foals


EQUINA Meganutril Junior

For the harmonious overall development of suckling foals, especially of the skeletal and joint systems.

Liquid mineral concentrate (Ca/P = 1:1) with trace element and vitamin complex

Liquid supplementary feed for horses

The foal's growth performance in its first year of life is enormous. Depending on the type and breed, the young horse has reached up to 70% of its final weight and up to 90% of its overall development by the end of the first year of life.

A sufficient, high-quality nutrient supply to the suckling foal forms the basis for healthy development, particularly of the skeleton, the musculoskeletal system, the organs and the body tissue.

In addition to a balanced and high-quality protein supply, minerals and trace elements are of central importance here.

However, growth and development do not occur evenly, but rather in spurts. The third and fifth months are important here.

Inadequate or incorrect supply of minerals and trace elements causes developmental disorders and damage to the musculoskeletal system, which are difficult or impossible to repair.

The mare's milk can no longer meet this need after just 4 weeks and the pasture grass, even with the best quality and composition, cannot meet the demanding nutritional requirements of the growing foal.

There is a special need in the following cases:

  • in foals born immature

  • in severely deformed foals

  • Foals from older mares

  • Foals with weak joints

  • before growth spurts (e.g. before 3/4 months of age)

  • Growth depression

EQUINA Meganutril Junior  is specifically tailored to the nutritional needs of suckling foals in the first 6 months of life.

With  EQUINA Meganutril Junior,  the foal receives a needs-based, individually adapted and biologically high-quality nutrient supply. It forms the basic prerequisite for harmonious and regulated overall development, especially of the skeletal and musculoskeletal systems.

EQUINA Meganutril Junior  is routinely used as a supplement to breast milk in the first weeks of life. This can be done as early as the second day of life.

In order to prevent the above-mentioned undesirable developments in foals that are obviously at risk, these are accompanied with an increased dosage.

EQUINA Meganutril Junior  contains:

  • Minerals calcium, phosphorus, (Ca:P = 1:1)

  • magnesium

  • Trace elements, copper, zinc, manganese, iodine, selenium, iron, chlorine

  • vitamins A, D3, E, K3

  • Vitamin B complex

  • is free of potassium

EQUINA Meganutril Junior  is a proven combination of nutrients and compensates for increased needs and deficits quickly and reliably because:

EQUINA Meganutril Junior  is liquid. The paste can be dosed precisely and ensures rapid absorption of the nutrients.

EQUINA Meganutril Junior  contains ACTIVE2 TEC (Trace Element Complex). This novel trace element combination of organic and inorganic forms of a trace element such as iron, copper or zinc ensures optimal supply with high efficiency, immediate and depot effects. 


The nutrients used are physiologically adapted to the horse's needs. Manufactured in a way that conserves nutrients, they are characterized by excellent acceptance, high bioavailability and effectiveness.
