ProKalm is an innovation in managing anxiety and stress in horses and ponies allowing them to perform to their potential. Once horses become anxious they may develop behaviours that make managing them difficult such as poor concentration, spooking, bolting, pulling, wind-sucking, crib biting, pawing, stamping and box walking.
Stress and anxiety over long periods can also lead to greater susceptibility to infections, gastric ulceration, loss of condition and poor recovery from exercise and competition as well as loss of performance.
ProKalm acts rapidly in as little as 30 minutes and the effect can last up to 8 hours. At low intake ProKalm is perfect for “Taking the edge off”. At moderate intake, ProKalm is suitable for more demanding situations and at highest level of intake can be used for horses that are difficult to handle for example during clipping, shoeing, travelling, backing etc.
ProKalm does not contain magnesium, valerian, tryptophan and acerpromazine (ACP). Why not?
There is no scientific evidence that magnesium has any calming effect in horses. Valerian is illegal under FEI and rules of racing. Tryptophan signals to the body that it is exhausted and has a negative effect on performance. ACP during exercise increases risk of in-coordination, stumbling and injury.

Instructions for use and feeding guide: Level 25 ml (16 g) scoops per day
|Pony ≈ 250 kg||1-3|
|Horse ≈ 500 kg||2-4|
|Large horse > 700 kg||2-6|
Always start with the minimum dose. If after 2 days a stronger effect is needed, then increase the daily dose, up to maximum recommended daily intake (e.g. 4 scoops for a 500 kg horse). If a less potent effect is required then decrease the daily dose. Individual horses may respond differently and the level of intake should be adjusted to obtain the required effect. The effect of ProKalm may be seen in as little as 30 minutes. The effect of a single dose can last for up to 8 hours. Peak effects are usually observed 2-4 hours after feeding. For difficult behaviours the effect may take 2-3 days to stabilize. The effects of ProKalm are more predictable and consistent when it is fed regularly twice a day.
