Nupafeed MAH® Concentrated Syringes work in exactly the same way as the liquid but they are much stronger so they provide a greater amount of the MAH® formula and work more quickly.

Advice on Feeding and Dosage
The ideal routine can vary greatly from horse to horse depending on the amount of work they are doing, and how stressed they become and by what triggers etc. These are some general guidelines for you to work with.

• The MAH® concentrate takes 1hr 30mins to absorb (as apposed to the 3hrs required by the liquid). If unsure of timing always allow a bit longer.
• Syringes must be given in advance of stressful situations, because they do not act as a sedative they will be ineffective with a horse that has already become wound up. Always think ahead so that your horse has enough magnesium available so that the magnesium, calcium balance is not disrupted.
• Bear in mind that when you need the syringe to be working may not be when your horse actually begins to be stressful. For instance you may be using the syringe for a dressage competition- you want the syringe to be working for your test but your horse may start getting anxious when being plaited, travelled or worked in. You need to work backward from the point at which your horse starts to get unsettled which is not necessarily when you start working him in.
• Your horse must be settled and left to relax whilst the MAH® absorbs.
• The syringes work best on an empty stomach. Ideally, allow any food to digest for half an hour before administering the MAH® and do not give any large quantities of food far an hour and a half afterward.

If your horse is not on the liquid it will normally need two syringes. The idea is that the first fills his reserves and corrects the imbalance which may exist. The second is then available to be burnt off gradually. Administer one syringe 3hrs before, the second 1hr 30mins before. Some horses only require one syringe.

If your horse is on the liquid then often one syringe 1hr 30mins before is enough. For greater effect you can give two syringes together 2hrs before. If your horse will be under stress for a long duration it may be preferable to give the two syringes individually 3hrs and 1hrs 30mins before. It is recommended that you increase the liquid level to a loading dose the day before competition and in the morning feed. The liquid can be used to greater effect by syringing up to 75mls after the morning feed has had time to digest. Using the liquid in this way is often very effective and may allow you to use fewer of the syringes and is therefore more economical.

Ponies obviously require smaller amounts. To improve economy you can use the syringes as you would with a horse but use half a syringe when normally a whole one would be used. Placing a rubber band around the plunger of the syringe makes this easier. Any MAH® the pony does not need will be excreted naturally so do not worry about overdosing – you do not have to divide the syringes in half and some ponies require whole syringes anyway.
