    Default Ration plus alternatives?

    I started using ration plus a few years ago when it was less than $20 a bottle, now it's over $30. I like it because it's liquid, does anybody know of any alternatives that work the same way?

    I think the bottle got smaller too - maybe it's just my imagination! LOL. I still use it. Paid $30 for the bottle plus tax last week. Very annoying but I like the stuff...
    She wasn't running away with me, I just couldn't stop her!

    I am seeing it for less on-line, but I was hoping somebody has some cheap alternative. Like stomach soother is really papaya puree and can be found in a health food store at a much better price. I was hoping somebody had found something like that for ration plus.

    If being a liquid is a must-have this won't work, but Equipride works on the same principles of supporting the good bacteria in the digestive tract.

    It's pretty reasonable too.

    Not a liquid, but it's a pre/probiotic mixture in tiny pellets. My horse won't eat powder and the liquids would freeze over winter so I had to move from Ration Plus before winter hit again this year. And it's easier to portion out with his other supplements ahead of time.

    $35.60 for a 96 day supply. $65 for 192 days.
