Cost per day vs. cost per pack

If you’re looking for a way to keep your supplement costs down, then we have the solution…so get your calculators out and we’ll talk you through it!

We know what it’s like. You go into a tack shop and there’s a lot of supplements on offer. Say you want a joint supplement. There’s a tiny tub for £60, and a huge tub for £40…so the huge tub MUST be cheaper- right? No…not necessarily.

It’s easy to be influenced by the price of the tub, but we urge you not to be as it could well save you a whole heap of money AND could even mean your horse is getting more of the important ingredients each day. We’re going to work through a few cost per day examples here, so you can see what you need to do when you compare products. We’re really proud of the value our products offer and their specification…and this is why buying ‘better’ could save you money.
