TopSpec All-in-One is the supplement put into TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer (therefore they should not be fed together). TopSpec All-in-One is a granular supplement that contains a top specification broad-spectrum supplement plus several specialised supplements, for example, a superb hoof supplement, generous levels of anti-oxidants and sophisticated digestive aids. This means that it is the most fully-comprehensive supplement you can buy and it can successfully be fed to every horse or pony on your yard.
TopSpec All-in-One supplement has been designed to supplement the rations of all horses and ponies simply by adjusting the rate at which it is fed and the products it is fed with. Because it contains insignificant calories it is one of the products that we would recommend for good-doers. As it is a powder it must be mixed with at least a double handful of appropriate chaff. Sometimes good-doers are also fussy feeders that dislike granular or powdered supplements, for them we would recommend TopSpec AntiLam, a pelleted multi-supplement with similar micronutrient content to TopSpec All-in-One Supplement.
We believe TopSpec All-in-One is the only supplement on the market that contains all of the following features:-
A fully comprehensive range of micronutrients included at the optimum levels needed to balance feed intake in the most demanding or stressful situations.
Effective levels of Biotin (15mg/500kg horse/day), which, in association with the methionine, lysine, calcium, zinc, copper, iodine and Vitamin A present, will greatly improve hoof quality. Certain of these nutrients also promote supple skin and a very shiny coat.
Powerful levels of Vitamin E and selenium, vital antioxidants, important for muscle metabolism, for horses on high oil rations and for breeding stock.
Methionine and lysine plus minerals, vitamins and trace-elements for optimum muscle and bone development and repair.
Raised levels of copper, zinc and B vitamins, important for blood-building.
Effective levels of calcium, phosphorous, copper and zinc to help develop and maintain strong bone.
Generous levels of B vitamins, vital for efficient energy metabolism in the high performance horse, and important for horses with compromised hindgut function.
Two probiotic substances to create a healthy gut environment, improve fibre digestion and maintain a healthy immune system.
Recent work by Dr. D. Cuddeford B.Sc. (Hons), PhD at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies, Edinburgh University has shown that this form of yeast can significantly improve fibre digestibility in the horse. This allows horses to gain more benefit from the fibrous parts in their diet. A mannan oligosaccharide (MOS). This is a natural sugar that occurs in yeast cell walls. It bonds with pathogenic (undesirable) bacteria, removing them from the gut, leaving the beneficial bacteria free to multiply. The combined effect of the two yeast products is a healthier gut environment with improved digestive efficiency.
Another way of considering this is to realise that if a horse is fed TopSpec All-in-One supplement (or TopSpec Comprehensive Feed Balancer) and a typical UK forage-based diet he does not need to be fed any of the following:-
1) A broad-spectrum (sometimes called general purpose) supplement.
2) A hoof supplement.
3) Additional anti-oxidants (except in very rare circumstances).
4) Additional essential amino acids e.g. methionine and lysine.
5) A blood tonic.
6) A supplement designed to improve bone growth.
7) A B-vitamin supplement.
8) Digestive aids such as yeast and MOS (mannan oligosaccharides).
TopSpec All-in-One supplement is available in 4kg, 9kg, and 20kg containers. The 4kg tub will last a 500kg horse (e.g. a 15.2hh middleweight) for 40 days, the cost-effective 9kg tub will last a similar horse three months, or is suitable for two/three horses, at a saving of 25%. The 20kg buckets are ideal for use on yards and offer a 40% saving compared to the small tubs.
