Sentinel Grow & Excel GX
Sentinel Grow & Excel, a Nutrient Release Formula feed, is the new generation in equine nutrition formulated specifically to meet the intense demands of young growing horses and active performance horses. A precise balance of protein, high fat and fiber from low starch/sugar ingredients provides healthful nutrition throughout growth and into performance. This versatile formulation of Sentinel Grow & Excel is also an ideal choice for breeding stallions and pregnant mares in late gestation. A pressure cooked feed offers a safe and natural way to provide essential nutrition and calories to growing and performing horses and is more easily digested for optimal nutrient utilization.
Features & Benefit
100% Extruded Form/Healthy Rate of Intake
The light and airy nature of pressure-cooked feeds may facilitate the breakdown of feed for horses while encouraging slower consumption and more thorough chewing. A slower rate of intake with more complete chewing may help minimize the risk of digstive upsets, such as colic and choke.
Low Starch and Sugar Ingredients
A low-starch and -sugar diet is often recommended by veterinarians and nutritionists for horses with a history of metabolic and digestive challenges, such as Cushing's, insulin resistance, tying up, DOD, EPSM, colic and laminitis.
Sequential Release of ‘Cool’ Energy
Sequential Release of ‘Cool’ Energy — A specific balance of fat and fermentable fiber provides safe calories at different rates to the body to meet the complex demands of the equine athlete.
Pre- and Pro-Biotics
Direct-fed microorgansisms and fermentation products aid in maintaining healthy digestion and active microbial fermentation for sustained nutrient digestibility, absorption and assimilation. These additives may support the presence of beneficial bacteria in the gut, resulting in sustained horse health and a more stale digestive tract environment.
Highly fermentable fiber sources such as soybean hulls, beet pulp, alfalfa meal and rice bran support healthy digestive activity while providing extra calories in a safe and natural form.
High Nutrient Density
High Nutrient Density — Provides more actual nutrition by weight; you may feed less while delivering more of what your horse needs for optimum health and ideal body condition.
Stable Digestive Environment
Stable Digestive Environment — Direct-fed microorganisms, yeast culture, fermentation products and mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) aid in maintaining healthy digestion and active microbial fermentation for sustained nutrient digestibility, absorption and assimilation. These additives, including guaranteed levels of Bacillus species, may support the presence of beneficial bacteria in the gut, resulting in sustained horse health and a more stable digestive tract environment.
Fixed Component Formula
A consistent formula, bag after bag, featuring only the highest quality ingredients, may help to prevent sudden changes in the diet to maintain digestive health and function.
Healthy Skin and Hair Coat
Healthy Skin and Hair Coat — Highly digestible fat from Soybean Oil and Flaxseed (sources of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids) helps provide extra calories for maintaining ideal body condition and helps promote a healthy skin and hair coat.
Brain and Visual Support
Brain and Visual Support — Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), an Omega-3 fatty acid, is a structural component of nerve cells in the brain and eyes and a key component of heart tissue. Studies have shown that DHA is important for mental and visual development and plays a key role in the anti-inflammatory process.
Immune System Support
Immune System Support — Sentinel incorporates an Advanced Antioxidant Package containing Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Bio-available Selenium, Chelated Zinc, Copper and Manganese plus Methionine. These nutrients aid in maintaining the integrity and strength of cells and tissues in senior horses, helping to sustain health and wellness under the stresses of aging.
