ProKalm is an innovation in managing anxiety and stress in horses and ponies, allowing them to perform to their full potential. Once horses become anxious they may develop behaviours such as poor concentration, spooking, bolting, pulling, wind-sucking, crib-biting, pawing, stamping and box-walking.
Stress and anxiety over long periods can also lead to greater susceptibility to infections, gastric ulceration, loss of condition and poor recovery from exercise and competition as well as loss of performance.
ProKalm contains 4 different ingredients to help reduce anxiety and nervousness. It acts in as little as 30 minutes and the effects can last up to 8 hours and can be fed as required, either for isolated situations or as a daily feed to achieve a sustained reduction in anxiety.
At low intake ProKalm is perfect for “taking the edge off” horses with stress-related problems or in stressful situations. At moderate in-take it is suitable for more demanding situations and the highest level of intake can be used for horses who are difficult to handle, for example during clipping, shoeing, travelling, backing, etc.
Uses of ProKalm include:
Aggressive or anxious behaviour such as
- weaving and wind-sucking
- during transportation
- covering (mares or stallions)
- vaccinations or vet visits
- for difficult or dangerous horses
- introduction to a new herd or yard
- to aid training or breaking to saddle / harness
- to improve concentration in competition
- during periods of box rest and on turning out afterwards
ProKalm is best given in feed on a regular basis. The effects of a single feed can begin within 30 minutes and last for up to 8 hours. The amount given can be varied to get the desired effect as some horses require a higher rate than others.
