Concentrated Electrolyte Supplement for Horses in Hot, Humid and Tropical Conditions

Horses resting and working under hot and humid conditions in northern regions of Australia, such as Queensland, the Northern Territory and northern WA, have increased needs for a concentrated salt and electrolyte mix to ensure optimum salt and fluid balance. 

Troppo-Salts is formulated to provide essential salts and other nutrients which help correct a low or inadequate intake of a range of salts in grain, chaff and hay based diets.

In extreme heat and humidity some horses develop a reduced ability to sweat and can suffer from anhydrosis (dry coat, non-sweating syndrome) which can have serious medical consequences. Supplementation with Troppo-Salts is beneficial and has a role in maintaining the normal sweating process.

Our Concept for Troppo-Salts

Troppo-Salts has been formulated based on extensive research by Dr John Kohnke to help ensure electrolyte replenishment for optimum sweating ability in tropical weather regions of Australia and overseas. 

Troppo-Salts is especially formulated for hot and humid tropical regions of QLD, NT and upper WA, where a specialised electrolyte supplement is recommended.  In these conditions, sweat and fluid replenishment for horses is critical, especially when resting, working and travelling. 

Heavily sweating horses, such as endurance horses, may also benefit from the blend of electrolyte and antioxidants in Troppo-Salts.

The updated ‘all-in-one’ formula of Troppo-Salts contains all the salts your horse needs.  You now do not need to add extra plain salt.  Troppo-Salts new formula includes antioxidants, zinc and the amino acid L-arginine, as nutrients that may help horses which show symptoms of reduced or patchy sweating, heat stress and anhydrosis. 

For moderately sweating horses not located in tropical regions, Kohnke’s Own Cell-Salts is recommended.

Major Ingredients
  • Troppo-Salts is formulated to provide essential physiological salts and other electrolytes which help correct a low or inadequate intake in grain, chaff and hay based diets.
  • Troppo-Salts contains essential salts, including sodium, potassium, magnesium and chloride, as a concentrated, feed-based electrolyte balancer
  • Troppo-Salts has extra amounts of vitamin E and vitamin C to provide additional antioxidants for optimum electrolyte uptake and help ensure normal sweating is maintained. These antioxidants are also useful to support muscle function and activity in horses working under hot and humid conditions. 
  • Troppo-Salts contains glucose to assist sweat replenishment in hot and humid conditions.
  • Troppo-Salts new formulation in 2021 contains a supplementary source of organic chelated zinc and the amino acid L-arginine, as nutrients linked to critical processes involved in the reduction of cellular oxidative damage from heat stress and other problems horses may experience in hot and humid weather.
  • Troppo-Salts is specially coated to ensure optimum palatability and reduced salt reactivity, preserving fragile vitamins in the feed and eliminating the risk of digestive upset commonly caused by paste or liquid salt solutions
  • Troppo-Salts is vanilla flavoured and a heavy, low dust powder for optimum palatability and reduced wastage.
Supplementation Guidelines

Each level scoopful provides 25 g of Troppo-Salts. Mix the measured amount into the daily feed.  It is recommended to provide Troppo-Salts after extended exercise to encourage rehydration.  Always ensure that adequate, clean & fresh drinking water is available at all times.   

For horses at rest under tropical conditions, feed 25 g daily. 

For horses in light work under tropical conditions, feed 50 grams daily.

For horses in moderate work under tropical conditions, feed 75 grams daily, recommended to split between morning and night feeds.
