Founded in 1968 by a veterinarian by the name of Pierre-Richard Dick, Virbac is dedicated exclusively to animal health, formulating a range of veterinary pharmaceuticals, vaccines and a wide range of pet care products for horses, dogs and cats.

Bectyl is a unique paste supplement of key minerals B-group vitamins, vitamin E and citrate to help horses prepare and recover from strenuous work, travel, hot weather, or illness. Bectyl paste is a concentrated blend of important electrolytes, vitamins, and minerals that supports horses during times of stress, whether it is due to environmental change, or hard work. 

Bectyl paste is easy and convenient to carry when travelling, or to have on hand in your tack box or first aid kit. It is apple-flavoured and pre-packed in easy to administer syringes.

  • 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.


  • In performance horses: Give 30 mL (half a syringe) after competition or after arriving home from the race. If given before a race or competition, please check with relevant authorities.
  • Endurance exercise: 30 – 60 mL can be administered directly over the tongue, during a ride or at check points, provided water is available or offered immediately. Give 60 mL on completion of the event and 30 mL on two consecutive mornings after the event.
  • Travelling horses: 30 mL – 60 mL over tongue with water provided 30 - 60 minutes prior to travel. Repeat every 3 – 4 hours during travelling and again on arrival as required.

Feeding Guidelines

These are broad guidelines only, designed to assist with feeding your pet based on their weight, age and activity level. Always check the feeding charts on your pet's food packaging in conjunction with these feeding guidelines. Required amounts may differ between individual pets, and adjustments may be required to maintain optimal body weight.

Once or twice daily feeding is recommended for adult dogs, unless otherwise specified by your veterinarian. Puppies and kittens require feeding more regularly, with the total portion divided into three or four meals throughout the day. Ensure fresh water is available at all times.
