Veterinary nutritional supplements (also referred to as nutraceuticals) are products taken by mouth that contain one or more dietary ingredients intended to supplement the diet. Such ingredients include vitamins, minerals, herbs or other botanical products, amino acids (the building blocks for proteins), and substances such as enzymes, organ tissues, glandulars, metabolites, extracts, or concentrates. Nutritional supplements for horses are available in a number of formulations, including pellets, granules, powders, pastes, liquids, injections (intravenous or intramuscular), and pills.
