We gave our Quarter horse pro weight meal after he lost weight due to have some dental issues. We noticed he started to gain weight and looks better.

Calcium is a micromineral found in highest amounts in bone and teeth. However, it also has important roles in supporting muscle contraction, cell membranes, blood clotting, enzymes regulation, and hormone release. Absorption of calcium from the small intestine is controlled by vitamin D but can be reduced if there is too much phosphorus in the diet. Ideally, horses should receive slightly more calcium than phosphorus – a ratio between 1:1 and 2:1. Pregnant and lactating mares, growing horses, and exercising horses may need more dietary calcium than an adult horse at rest.
Phosphorus is a macromineral that, like Calcium, is found in highest amounts in bone. It is also required for energy production and the synthesis of many vital compounds such as DNA. The minerals calcium (Ca) and phosphorous (P) play a major role in proper growth and development of the skeletal system in horses. Ideally, horses should receive slightly more calcium than phosphorus – a ratio between 1:1 and 2:1.
Active Dry Yeast: Supports enzyme activity for fiber digestion in the hind gut and provides a direct source of nutrients to nourish good bacteria. Stabilizes digestive flora during periods of stress for overall health and performance.
Probiotics are live microorganisms (bacteria and yeast) that help promote healthy digestive function and support a healthy immune system. Often referred to as ‘good bugs’ they help break down ingredients/contents that the body normally can't, and help inhibit ‘bad bugs’ from growing.
My horse came out of winter a little thinner than last year, will this help him get back to a normal weight?
MVP: First, have your veterinarian perform a complete physical examination on your thin horse to rule-out any medical diseases or conditions. Once medical conditions have been ruled out, fat can be safely added as an additional source of calories such as the Pro-Weight.
Is this supplement OK for long term use?
MVP: Pro-Weight is generally appropriate for long-term use in horses.
Can this be fed with beet pulp?
MVP: Pro-Weight may be given with beet pulp to support healthy weight maintenance.
Pro-weight is a product I will always have in my barn. I start all my training horses on it and keep them on it throughout their training and recommend it when it comes time for them to go back home. It keeps all of my horses looking awesome and shiny. You can tell always tell which horses have just arrived at my barn and which ones are MVP horses!
My thoroughbred went off his feed due to abcesses and lost a ton of weight. Our 23yr old paint is a hard keeper. We've been giving this supplement for a few weeks and they've really packed on the pounds! I've even seen a better appetite and attitude from both! Thanks to Pro weight and other mvp products, these two have never been better. Even their performance is better in the show pen!
I LOVE this for adding or maintaining weight or top line. Works great to customize for each horses need as a top dressing to their grain. We use this on our working/breeding stallions, working and training horses.
My 27 year old National Showhorse gelding was always thin. This past year, he had become VERY thin, and his farrier and vet both suggested that it would be cruel to put him though a north central Indiana winter in that condition. In early September, I began using this product. I was very skeptical, since he’s been a picky eater. He loves it! I’m almost finished with the second bag, and he’s definitely put on weight! His hip bones are no longer visible, and his ribs are less visible. GREAT PRODUCT!!
When I rescued my horse he desperately needed to put weight on before winter. We started him on MVP’s Pro-Weight and he looked fantastic in 6 weeks before the cold weather set in. Thank you for having such a great product!
I like the product, smells great, very palatable. Definitely puts weight on. Versatile, as you can use to help for improved body condition at higher dose and for skin/coat enhancement at lower dose.
When I bought my mare in February she was very thin. I put her on Pro-Weight and started seeing results within the first 6 weeks, after only 4 months she looks like a new horse! She went from looking like a straight off the track TB to a warmblood!
