Just a warning: The conversion rules given on this web site are incorrect. This web site implies that synthetic forms of alpha-tocopherol have higher biological activity than the natural form. This is not true.

Since the omega-3 contains EPA and DHA the source is fish oil. It may be OK to give a horse fish oil, but I would prefer to use flaxseed oil or ground flaxseed instead.
