Blood is essential to life to deliver oxygen and nutrients to cells and remove metabolic waste. Red Blood Cells (RBC) are one of the 3 types of blood cells that make up blood. The other two are white blood cells also known as leukocytes and platelets also called thrombocytes. RBC are the most abundant blood cells and in a horse makeup about 8-10% of body weight or 40L for 500 kg horse. RBC contains an iron containing protein called hemoglobin to which oxygen will bind to. RBC will deliver oxygen to muscle cells to transform energy from carbohydrates, fats and protein to ATP (adenosine triphosphate) energy, which is the form of energy that muscles utilize.
A lack of hemoglobin, often caused by iron deficiencies, blood loss, hemolysis or destruction of RBC will limit the delivery of oxygen to working muscles, compromising both performance and health.
Iron, Vitamin B12, folic acid is required for the production of healthy red blood cells.
