What makes Chug different than other hydration products?

Most hydration products are high in sugar and/or starch, which is unhealthy for horses and problematic especially for metabolic horses. Chug has only 1% combined sugar and starch (NSC) content making it safe for horses with Cushings, PSSM and other metabolic issues.


Is Chug an electrolyte?

No. Chug is a way to add irresistible smell and flavor to water so that your horse can’t resist drinking and hydrating. There is a small amount of pink Himalayan salt in Chug, but Chug is not an electrolyte. If you need an electrolyte it is recommended to add Electrofresh to their diet. 


How many scoops should I use?

Chug is designed so you can use as few or as many scoops as you like to fit your horse’s specific taste preferences. Some horses prefer just 1 scoop per gallon and some prefer more. You can experiment in order to create the perfect flavor profile!


Foam or no foam?

Many horses enjoy playing with the foam on top that is created when adding water to the powder. Other horses prefer a foam-free drink. If you want to create foam, add Chug to the bucket first and then spray in the water. If you want to reduce foam then add water first and stir in Chug second.


How many servings are there in each bag of Chug?

The small bag contains 12 servings and the large bag contains 40 servings. 


Is Stevia safe for horses?

Yes! A 2020 study done at the University of Kentucky actually concluded stevia is one of the safest sugar substances to use in horses! The University of Kentucky study actually concluded that stevia was well tolerated in EMS horses because the plant-derived sweetener did not induce the same metabolic responses as the corn-syrup challenge. The amount we use is so small that it’s measured in ppm (parts per million).


Do you offer farm incentive programs?

Yes.  For barns buying in bulk please email us at [email protected] to discuss eligibility and incentive structure.

Where do you ship from?

All orders ship from our warehouse in Wellington, FL.


Do you have sales or promo codes?

No. We do not have sales or promo codes because we offer the highest quality product at the lowest possible price year round.

Do you have sample sizes of the supplements?

No.  The reason we do not have sample sizes is because the average time frame for seeing an improvement is generally 2-3 weeks so for people wanting to sample the products we suggest starting with the 30 day supply.

Because it contains no sugar, it is safe for horses with metabolic syndrome.

"I was introduced to Chug when treating a horse that was not drinking enough and having issues staying hydrated. I was amazed by how much he liked the Chug and how easy it was to get him to drink with it. Since then, I have been recommending it to clients and I find it extremely helpful for picky horses because it is so palatable. And because it contains no sugar, it is safe for horses with metabolic syndrome. "

Celina absolutely loved Chug.

"Celina absolutely loved Chug. She was immediately drawn to the water, and the more she drank, the more she enjoyed it. She was really playful with the bucket of Chug and acted like she was getting a treat, which is useful when it comes to keeping her hydrated. "

Electrofresh really helps promote hydration and is a product we have all our horses on.

"It's easy in such a hot climate for the horses to lose the minerals they need when sweating, so Electrofresh replenishes those minerals. The horses absolutely love the taste. I had no idea horses loved bananas as much as they do! "

Keeping our horses hydrated is a top priority for me.

"Keeping our horses hydrated is a top priority for me. There is the old adage, “you can lead a horse to water, but you can’t make it drink!” I’ve found with Equine Elixirs CHUG, I can reliably convince my horses to drink, which greatly eases my mind. It has saved us from having to call the vet for fluids when horses stop drinking for a myriad of reasons."
