Every horse is different and will metabolise at different rates as well as having pre-existing levels of serotonin.
- Feed one or two Bites 30-45 minutes before you need the desired effect.
- Lasts 3-4 hours and can be topped up every 3 hours.
- For best results feed for 2-3 consecutive days to build up the Serotonin levels.
- Up to 4 Bites can be given in a day.
Some horses may benefit from 1 Calmer Bite™ the night before an event, 1 again in the morning and 1 approximately 45 mins before. Some horses may benefit from more than one at a time.
Over time, our customers have found they need to use them less as the horse gains confidence and settles more quickly.
Calmer Bites can be fed up to 4 times a day, give one or two an hour before the stressful or excitable situation. They are formulated to help your horse cope better and not overreact. A loading dose on first use is recommended for the days leading up to the event, feeding for one or two days beforehand.
