Iron deficiency results in poor performance in horses. It also compromises immunity and health, and increases susceptibility to disease and infection. Anemia also reduces blood enzymes which are important for the elimination of harmful metabolites produced by the muscle during racing. Trials with Iron injection uses in racing horses, dogs, & greyhounds showed that treatment consistently increased hemoglobin & other blood values under different treatment frequencies and dose schedules. The effects of the treatment as measured by improvement in hemoglobin was evident for up to 3 months. Indications
