Product Summary:

Med-Vet D-Carb™ (Balance)

Since high carbohydrate levels, found in grain and rich alfalfa hay, are often restricted in Insulin Resistance (IR) diets, it is important to provide essential mineral nutrients, necessary for nutritional support. D-Carb™ (Balance) is specifically formulated for horses predisposed to IR and/or an inability to metabolize high carbohydrate levels, found in feedstuffs with high sugar content. Pelletized and flavored to enhance palatability, it's designed for diets consisting of approximately 15-20 lb. of Timothy or Bermuda grass type hay, no grain, or small amounts and/or similar low carb feedstuffs (beet pulp) to provide calcium, phosphorus, vitamins, and trace minerals that would be lacking, given the restriction of carbohydrate-high grain and alfalfa-type hay.

Features:

  • Supports glucose metabolism to help maintain proper blood sugar levels within a normal range
  • New improved formula, now with Chromium
  • Pelletized and flavored to enhance palatability

I chose this supplement for my 30 y/o QH Mare with Cushing's Disease because of the added chromium. Since then, she has seemed to do well on it and has been 'shedding out' on a normal seasonal basis for almost a year now.
