Individual supplements of Vitamin B12.
VITAMIN B12 INJECTION: Cyanocobalamin (Vit B 12) 1mg/mL
Features and Benefits
Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin) is an essential coenzyme for all cells and is required for folate metabolism.
Vitamin B12 forms part of the essential coenzymes for all cells, particularly rapid turnover cells including red blood cells, the gastrointestinal tract lining and bone marrow. Vitmain B12 is essential for normal folate (another B vitamin) metabolism. Issuficiency of folate inhibits new cell growth. Vitamin B12 also plays a role in stimulation of appetite in performance animals.
VITAMIN B12 is useful to stimulate appetite in horses, and is essential in maintenance of adequate blood counts.

VITAMIN B12 can be used with all Nature Vet products.

APVMA Approval Number
Pregnancy: FOLIC ACID is critically involved with VITAMIN B12, VITAMIN C and Cobalt metabolism.
FOLIC ACID should be supplemented in brood mares during pregnancy, and in young, growing foals.
FOLIC ACID is vital in the reformation of high turnover cells, and in stressed performance horses the synthesis of FOLIC ACID in the gut, and absorption from the gut, may be inadequate. Also consider supplementation whenever sulphur-based antibiotics have been used.
B Complex Vitamins:
Are water soluble, and required in regular amounts at all times. FOLIC ACID and VITAMIN B12 are members of this group of vitamins, which are essential to a wide range of body processes.
As the anaemias caused by deficiency of either FOLIC ACID or VITAMIN B12 are clinically indistinguishable, the two vitamins are effectively combined in the one product.
Other Nature Vet preparations contain Vitamin B12, and may be more appropriate to certain requirements. Consider VAM, VITAMIN B COMPLEX or COPHOS B.
