May 30, 2013 — Juliet M. Getty, PhD, produces a popular monthly Spotlight on Equine Nutrition teleseminar, and these seminars have been educating horse owners for more than two years. Now, those who prefer to do their learning “by the book” can gain from the print versions of several of the teleseminars.
The Aging Horse – Helping Him Grow Old with Dignity and in Health
The aged horse has so much to offer, especially wisdom, experience, and confidence. Helping him grow old in good health and with dignity is a gift every horse owner hopes to be able to bestow. In The Aging Horse, Getty covers all the elements you need to know about feeding your horse to foster his longevity and prolong his usefulness.
Easy Keeper — Making It Easy to Keep Him Healthy
Equine obesity is a difficult yet highly common issue all over the world. In Easy Keeper, Getty covers the causes, prevention and solutions, and she offers four keys to successful equine weight management that not only work, but bring benefits far beyond reducing a horse’s girth.
Laminitis – A Scientific and Realistic Approach
All too many horse owners and managers have dealt with the heartbreaking dilemma of laminitis, and, all too often unnecessarily, laminitis has brought an end to a promising equine career. In Laminitis, Getty surveys the causes and treatments, and offers prevention strategies plus practical solutions that can return a stricken horse to useful, healthy life.
Whole Foods & Alternative Feeds
Variety is not simply the spice of life for a horse, it’s the key to his good health. In Whole Foods & Alternative Feeds, Getty discusses the many benefits of adding whole foods—from berries to nuts—to round out the horse’s diet for optimal health.
And coming soon: Joint Health – A Nutritional Perspective
Horse owners will find these convenient resources to turn to time and again. Each book contains the full teleseminar, including lecture section plus all relevant audience questions along with Getty’s answers. And in many cases, Getty has expanded the material with additional useful information about the topic and specific related conditions.
