Key Features

Healthy Tummy is a nutritionally-balanced, pure alfalfa, high-fibre feed containing high specification ingredients to promote digestive health.

  • A blend of chopped and pelleted alfalfa with a rapeseed oil coating providing 11.5MJ/kg of Digestible Energy from fibre and oil
  • Alfalfa is a widely recognised ingredient for promoting digestive health due to its natural buffering properties
  • Approved by BETA for horses and ponies prone to Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome
  • No added sugar and naturally low in starch at just 2%
  • Healthy Tummy contains ADM Protexin In-Feed Formula, which supplies prebiotics to promote a healthy microbial population that is vital for fibre digestion and gut health
  • A high specification of vitamins and minerals, including B vitamins. Additional magnesium and calcium are included to help maintain optimal digestive health
  • Increased levels of key trace minerals that are most likely to be deficient in forage
  • Introducing chelated or organic forms of key trace minerals selenium, copper and zinc
  • Organic minerals are more bio-available to the horse
  • Healthy Tummy provides more chew time than ‘ulcer’ mixes or cubes which generates more saliva; the horse’s natural defence against acidity
  • Contains a unique blend of tasty herbs – oregano, cinnamon, ginger, rosemary and thyme – to tempt fussy horses
  • Healthy Tummy is rich in highly digestible fibre and packed with natural vitamins and minerals
  • Free from molasses, preservatives and straw
  • The alfalfa is precision-dried to lock in natural nutrients and produce an exceptionally clean source of fibre compared to sun-dried forages.

How to feed Healthy Tummy

For horses at rest or in light work:

Healthy Tummy is a nutritionally balanced feed containing all the vitamins and minerals your horse or pony needs. There is no need to add any mix, cubes or supplements as long as you are feeding the recommended levels.

For horses in moderate and hard work:

Feeding a high fibre diet is essential should your horse be suffering or have had ulcers in the past. Healthy Tummy can be fed alongside Dengie Alfa-Beet to increase energy intake to meet the requirements of harder work. Healthy Tummy can also be fed alongside mixes and cubes to help counteract the effects of using cereal based feeds.

Customer Reviews


  1. Sally Moore

    My horse Cash 16.2 Thoroughbred gelding suffered terribly with ulcers. After recovering I decided to try Healthy Tummy, this has been a gamechanger & I now have a happy healthy horse again. His skin & coat is also gleaming.
    This is definitely the product he will be constantly on from now on.

  2. Mia Piper

    I have a 15.3 8 year old TB, he’s your typical stressy type who loses weight very easily. I’ve recently put him on Healthy Tummy and found massive improvements in not only his weight but also his nature, he’s much less stressy and his poo’s have really firmed up too!
    It’s a super quality feed without a super massive premium!

  3. Diana Finch

    I fed Healthy Tummy to my previous horse and it was a game changer. I now have a part bred Connemara who hated having her girth fastened, no matter how slowly it was done,and hated having her belly brushed, since putting her on Healthy Tummy she is not at all grumpy and is just much more settled in her attitude.It is truly a magical feed!

  4. Brea

    I have a large young warmblood who was struggling to hold his weight but had no signs of ulcers, I had him on all sorts of feeds but decided to move him over to Dengie Healthy tummy after speaking to a equine nutritionist, after a few weeks I’ve seen a huge improvement in his weight/topline.
    I now have our other 4 horses on Dengie feed aswell.
