Troppo-Salts
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 and the Northern Territory, have increased needs for a concentrated salt and electrolyte mix to ensure optimum 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 normal sweating behaviour.

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

Our Concept for Troppo-Salts

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

In hot, humid conditions, sweat replenishment for horses is critical, especially when resting, working and travelling, and the extra nutrients provided by Troppo-Salts™, including vitamin E, vitamin C and glucose, assist electrolyte uptake and help ensure that normal sweating is maintained.

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

Troppo-Salts meets the elevated electrolyte needs for horses in hot, humid and tropical Australian regions

Which Horses Benefit?
  • All horses resting or working in hot and humid conditions and weather regions in Australia, such as Queensland and the Northern Territory
  • Horses which sweat excessively in response to exercise
  • Flexible dose rates ensure electrolyte replacement for horses at rest and at all levels of training, from light work to intense work
  • Especially useful for horses with reduced sweating ability or anhydrosis
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 ensure optimum electrolyte uptake and to ensure normal sweating is maintained. These antioxidants are also useful to support muscle health in horses working in hot and humid conditions.
  • Troppo-Salts contains glucose to assist sweat replenishment in hot and humid conditions.
  • 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 concentrated and contains essential physiological electrolytes needed for horses, for optimum salt balance it is recommended to feed Troppo-Salts on a ‘scoop for scoop’ basis with plain table salt (normal Sodium Chloride)
  • Troppo-Salts is vanilla flavoured and a heavy, dust-free powder for optimum palatability and reduced wastage.
Supplementation Guidelines
Each level scoopful provides 25 g of Troppo-Salts.

For horses at rest, and in light to medium work under tropical conditions, provide 25 grams of Troppo-Salts, plug 30 g (1 scoopful) of plain normal salt (sodium chloride) daily

For heavy worked horses, or those with a dry coat, under tropical conditions provide 50 grams of Troppo-Salts and 60 grams of plain salt daily, split between morning and evening feeds.

For miniatures and ponies, feed half the above supplementation rates.

Always ensure that adequate, clean & fresh drinking water is available at all times.

“I have used Troppo-Salts for my dressage horses for years. It is so important to add salt to their diets as they are working and sweating heavily.” Jordan J, QLD
