Autumn with Topspec

Written by

We have exciting new products, offers and even a giveaway or two with Topspec and Vetspec over October and November. 

Firstly, let's start with new products! 

From Topspec we have the new Performace Lite Feed Balancer

This balancer is designed for your good-doers, the horses and ponies in hard work that need their weight controlling, maybe because of good grazing/forage quality. This is a non-heating feed containing a multi-supplement including the levels of micronutrients normally only found in high-quality supplements. 

Performance Lite contains low levels and sugar and starch, the formula is guaranteed to be cereal-grain-free.

It is essential that all hard-working horses and ponies have sufficient salt in their daily diet.

Important - Performance Lite is a concentrated formula, rich in micronutrients. Care must be taken not to overfeed more than the recommended amounts, even beneficial nutrients can become harmful when continually fed excess.

From Vetspec, we have the Working Dog Chicken and Rice for Puppy and Adult

For puppy - this formula contains specific supplements to ensure optimum growth of your puppy from four weeks to 12 months. They can then be transitioned onto the working-dog adult. The prebiotics in the supplement helps maintain a healthy gut in dogs with a sensitive stomach. This formula is also wheat gluten-free and contains no added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

This table is intended as a guide only and exact feeding amounts should be varied according to your puppy’s breed, sex, condition and activity levels. Puppies should be fed 3-4 times per day. When introducing VetSpec into your puppy’s diet we advise that this is done gradually over a period of 5-10 days until it replaces all other food.  

For Adult - This formula is an outstanding Veterinary Specification Healthy Dog Adult supplement in a Super Premium dog food including 44% Chicken with added rice, vegetables and herbs. It is a superb product for working dogs. It is Rich in Glucosamine, MSM and Chrondroitin to optimise joint mobility. The specialised supplements include Biotin. Just like the puppy formula, it is wheat gluten-free and there are no added artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
