Psyllium husks are ideal as a digestive aid for horses particularly those animals kept on sandy or gravelly paddocks or turnout areas. When ingested the Psyllium swells and forms a mucilagenous and gel like substance that as it passes through the digestive system acting as a hydroscopic sponge, soaking up and helping to clear any unwanted foreign material (such as sandy deposits and indigestible roughage). Many vets recommend the use of Psyllium for horses kept on sandy soils. It is important when feeding Psyllium that the horse has access to water and is allowed free movement in a paddock or turnout area to maintain healthy digestive movement. See our How do I use it for guidelines on using Psyllium for horses.

Psyllium husks (Plantago Ovata)

How to use:
Horses: give as advised by your Vet.  As a general guideline it is recommended to give 2 to 3  x 15 ml scoops per day for 7 days (Note: one level 15ml scoop weighs approx 6 grams).
If necessary can be given for longer, but be advised by your vet.
Repeat as necessary.
Ensure the horse is not unduly confined during this time (movement provides essential digestive function).
Ensure the horse has free access to water at all times.
Add to feed on a daily basis, if possible splitting the required amount between two feeds.
*please note: we do not include feeding instructions on the packaging or include a scoop in the bag or tub.  This is due to the consistency of straight herbs eg roots are more dense than leaves or flowers, and they can be given to a variety of species.  For further research on using straight herbs for animals there are some good books available including Hilary Self's "A Modern Horse Herbal".
