It also contains a broad spectrum vitamin and mineral supplement, which includes limestone and magnesium. Magnesium is often deficient in UK soils and is an important factor in the nutritional support of many metabolic processes in the donkey as well as helping to maintain a healthy nervous system. Deficiency in this mineral may be associated with glucose intolerance and insulin resistance, both of which are important in the nutritional management of laminitis. Limestone provides additional calcium for strong bones and healthy growth Mollichaff Donkey is low in sugar, starch and energy and carries the HoofKind logo to denote that it is suitable for laminitic donkeys, mules, horses or ponies.
