Virbac Axon Bectyl Paste 30ml

BECTYL is a unique paste supplement of key minerals B-group vitamins, vitamin E and citrate to help:

  • Restore levels of electrolytes before and after travel
  • Maintain appetite and vitality during competition
  • Speed up recovery after exercise
  • Buffer acid build-up during exercise

Recommended for

  • Horses prior to, during and after travel
  • Performance horses
  • “Tucked-up” horses – showing signs of dehydration
  • Horses in hot weather or experiencing a period of excessive stress
  • Rehydration after illness or diarrhoea

Why choose bectyl paste?

Restores electrolyte balance –  Loss of large amounts of electrolytes can lead to dehydration, fatigue and subsequent poor performance. BECTYL helps restore this balance.

Scientifically balanced for rehydration and recovery –  Estimated sweat losses in performance horses can range from 10 L – 60 L per day. BECTYL helps to encourage drinking and provides key nutrients to restore fluid balance and aid in recovery.

Functional ingredients –  BECTYL contains B-group vitamins to assist efficient utilisation of energy; citrate to help buffer against acid and vitamin E to mop up dangerous free radicals produced during exercise to prevent muscle soreness and fatigue.

Convenient and palatable –  BECTYL’s apple-flavoured paste is conveniently packaged in a syringe, making it easy to take to shows/events or administer after racing.


Electrolyte imbalances and dehydration due to sweat loss can occur during training, racing, competition and travel in all performance horses.
