Home / Horse / Adult / Sentinel Safe Start SS
Sentinel Safe Start, a Nutrient Release Formula feed, is the new generation in equine nutrition formulated specifically to meet the high demands of foal growth and mare lactation. A high-protein and high-fat formulation utilizing low starch/sugar ingredients provides the precise nutrition necessary for healthy foal growth, premium milk composition and optimum milk production in mares. This unique formulation of Sentinel Safe Start is also recommended for show horses on low-protein hay or when extra shine and condition is desired. A pressure cooked feed offers a safe and natural way to provide essential nutrition and calories to young growing foals and lactating mares and is easily digested for optimal nutrient utilization.
The light and airy nature of pressure-cooked feeds may facilitate the breakdown of feed for horses while encouraging slower consumption and more thorough chewing. A slower rate of intake with more complete chewing may help minimize the risk of digstive upsets, such as colic and choke.
A low-starch and -sugar diet is often recommended by veterinarians and nutritionists for horses with a history of metabolic and digestive challenges, such as Cushing's, insulin resistance, tying up, DOD, EPSM, colic and laminitis.
Direct-fed microorgansisms and fermentation products aid in maintaining healthy digestion and active microbial fermentation for sustained nutrient digestibility, absorption and assimilation. These additives may support the presence of beneficial bacteria in the gut, resulting in sustained horse health and a more stale digestive tract environment.
Highly fermentable fiber sources such as soybean hulls, beet pulp, alfalfa meal and rice bran support healthy digestive activity while providing extra calories in a safe and natural form.
High Nutrient Density — Provides more actual nutrition by weight; you may feed less while delivering more of what your horse needs for optimum health and ideal body condition.
Stable Digestive Environment — Direct-fed microorganisms, yeast culture, fermentation products and mannanoligosaccharides (MOS) aid in maintaining healthy digestion and active microbial fermentation for sustained nutrient digestibility, absorption and assimilation. These additives, including guaranteed levels of Bacillus species, may support the presence of beneficial bacteria in the gut, resulting in sustained horse health and a more stable digestive tract environment.
A consistent formula, bag after bag, featuring only the highest quality ingredients, may help to prevent sudden changes in the diet to maintain digestive health and function.
Healthy Skin and Hair Coat — Highly digestible fat from Soybean Oil and Flaxseed (sources of Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids) helps provide extra calories for maintaining ideal body condition and helps promote a healthy skin and hair coat.
Brain and Visual Support — Docosahexaenoic Acid (DHA), an Omega-3 fatty acid, is a structural component of nerve cells in the brain and eyes and a key component of heart tissue. Studies have shown that DHA is important for mental and visual development and plays a key role in the anti-inflammatory process.
Immune System Support — Sentinel incorporates an Advanced Antioxidant Package containing Vitamin E, Vitamin C, Vitamin A, Bio-available Selenium, Chelated Zinc, Copper and Manganese plus Methionine. These nutrients aid in maintaining the integrity and strength of cells and tissues in senior horses, helping to sustain health and wellness under the stresses of aging.
Growth and Development — Sentinel contains guaranteed levels of the Amino Acids Lysine, Methionine and Threonine. Amino Acids are the building blocks of quality protein necessary for growth and maintenance of all tissues including bone, muscle, hoof and hair. Protein is also important for milk production in lactating mares.

I have been a long time Kent feed user on all my animals. I started feeding the Sentinel Safe Start SS this year. I have an Araloosa mare that has foundered in the past as well as many miniature horses with most being in foal. All of my horses have done great with this feed. They range in age from 4 months up to 19 years old and range in size from 19″ up to 16 hands. Their coats look great, my foals are all developing nicely and the ones which are working are doing great on this feed. All of their weight looks wonderful and I am very pleased. I have recommended this feed to a few people which have all switched to in and are enjoying the results.
