About Pavo InShape

Pavo InShape is part of the Pavo InShape Program: the complete weight loss program for horses

Did you know that more than 80% of all leisure horses are overweight? It might look pretty, a beautiful, round horse, but overweight can lead to many health risks, such as an increased risk of serious colic, insulin resistance and laminitis. So it is time to do something about it! The Pavo InShape Program has been set up to help all overweight horses and ponies to lose weight in a healthy and responsible way. This weight loss program has been compiled by experts and consists of three parts: management, exercise and feed. Only by combining those three, you will achieve the best results.

Prevent muscle wasting during a weight loss program

Feed is one of the three pillars of the Pavo InShape Program. When you are trying to make your horse lose weight, it is - just as in people - important to prevent muscle wasting. As your horse will exercise more, the muscles will be put to work. Extra protein is required to help the muscles recover after exercising and to prevent muscle tissue from being used as a replacement energy source, which will cause muscle wasting. You could compare this with a protein shake that people take when we, perhaps all of a sudden, start to exercise more. With Pavo InShape, your horse will get all he needs in addition to his roughage.

Pavo InShape: optimum feed support for the Pavo InShape Program

Pavo InShape is a completely vitaminised muesli with natural antioxidants and especially developed to optimally support horses during a weight loss program. In addition to a unique high-quality protein (methionine) that supports fat burning, Pavo InShape also contains an extra high amount of protein to help the muscles to recover after exercise and to prevent muscle wasting. Furthermore, with Pavo InShape, you will give your horse all the daily required vitamins, minerals and trace elements, thanks to the Pavo Vital pellets, and it is free of cereals. As a result, the sugar, starch and energy levels are very low. When you are fighting overweight, it is essential that your horse does not get any extra energy. Moreover, the low sugar and starch levels will support horses with a disrupted sugar metabolism, which is often caused by overweight.

Pavo Vital InShape is part of the Pavo InShape Program and will, combined with the right exercise and management, result in your horse regaining its optimal weight, which will contribute to your horse’s health.
