La Victoria Equine Performance Supplements has joined forces with WE United to offer WE United members a 10% discount on all their products.
I’m generally a skeptic when it comes to supplements,” explains WE United Member Julie Alonzo, “but I can’t say enough good things about Gastro Solution and Liquid Gold, both of which I’ve been giving to my WE horse, CDC Memoria, since June of 2016. Memoria had always been a little ‘cinchy’, one of the symptoms of gastric ulcers. I noticed marked improvement within four days of starting her on La Victoria’s Gastro Solution, and she has never been happier or better able to focus.”
La Victoria, which is based in Florida, offers four main Equine Supplements:
Gastro Solution is a practical solution for several common intestinal problems that animals may suffer singly or all at once due to stress from competition, traveling or enclosure; genetics; or poor eating habits.
All of these circumstances may cause excessive gas, sometimes leading to colic, and too much acid production, which causes ulcers. An animal experiencing constant intestinal discomfort suffers from lack of appetite, weight loss, irritability, and an overall poor appearance. All these health problems can become costly and stressful to the owner or caretaker. Sometimes they become deadly.
Gastro Solution is administered daily. Either mix it into feed or administer orally with a syringe. It coats the stomach and parts of the intestine, helping slow the production of excess acid and gas and minimizing the possibility of gas colic and ulcers. Your animal will digest more nutrients from the feed. Gradually your animal’s disposition will improve, it will gain some weight, and its coat will look healthier. You, as the owner or caregiver, will benefit from fewer veterinary visits and lower feed bills. Your horse will be healthier and feel better.
- Calcium Carbonate: Used as an antacid to relieve heartburn, acid indigestion, and upset stomach.
- Magnesium Oxide: The body needs magnesium oxide to function normally. It acts as an antacid to relieve heartburn, sour stomach, or acid indigestion. Magnesium oxide helps activate normal bowl movement.
Liquid Gold. A complete joint formula that will keep active and passive joint issues under control in animals of all ages. Liquid Gold reduces inflammation, relieves discomfort, and helps maintain healthy synovial fluid and cartilage in all joints.
This combination of large quantities of high quality ingredients in a single product helps animals with a broad spectrum of problems. Putting all the ingredients in one product makes the feeding process easier for the animal owner or caregiver. Liquid Gold reduces the amount of supplements that have to be added to the feed. It is far less invasive than constant injections or infiltrations, making administering it simpler for you and safer for your animal.
Your animal does not have to have a chronic joint problem to benefit from Liquid Gold. Joints are put under stress every day just by exercising, and the strain increases with competition. Inflammation or discomfort can appear at any age or at any time during the animal’s life.
Liquid Gold joint formula comes in a liquid form, so the animal begins to absorb it as soon as it comes into contact with the mouth tissue. It does not have to be dissolved by liquid in the stomach to be absorbed, like other powder supplements. Also, it sticks to the grain when is first mixed into feed, and does not stay at the bottom of the feed bucket.

Free Airways lessens allergy attacks and improves healthy respiratory function, increasing endurance. In some cases, it has helped with epistaxis and nosebleeds.

Perspire Plus helps prevent the consequences of anhidrosis, the inability to sweat. Perspire Plus active ingredients are a combination of amino acids, complex vitamin B and vitamin E. It jumps starts the production of dopamine, which stimulates brain function and the cardiovascular system, and most importantly, helps the sweat glands to function properly.
This product was specifically designed to help non-sweating horses which suffer from anhidrosis. Anhidrosis occurs most often when a horse is under excess stress from high temperatures or high humidity. We all know that horse have all different personalities. Anything can trigger a stressful episode at any time, making it very difficult to pinpoint what causes sweating deficiency in horses. Most of the research has concluded that there is a significant relationship between the production of dopamine and the ability to sweat. When the production of dopamine slows down, the sweating mechanism starts to shut down. This can cause a very harmful, sometimes life-threatening, imbalance as the horse gets overheated and dehydrated.
Active Ingredients Per dosage (10 GMS)
Perspire Plus is a combination of amino acids(2400mg), complex vitamin B’s(600mg) and vitamin E(50iu). All these ingredients jump start the production of dopamine, which stimulates brain function and the cardiovascular system, and most importantly, helps the sweat glands to function properly. Your horse should start to show signs of perspiration and will eventually perspire normally, helping its body cool off and getting its heart rate under control.
