Help Your Senior Horse Fight the Battle Against Aging

For humans, the aging process sometimes isn’t an enjoyable one. This can be said the same for horses as well.

Research has shown that, for both humans and horses, immune function declines within age. This is where immunosenescence comes into play.  When there is a gradual decrease with the immune function, it results in a decreased ability to resist infection and responsiveness to vaccination. For most senior horses, these are common problems that occurs while they age.

Look no further! Purina has the answer that you’ve been looking for to help win the battle against your horse’s aging process.
