Protexin Gut Sponge Prebiotic for Horses

Gut Sponge is a delicious peppermint-flavoured supplement designed for your horse's hind gut health. It ensures your horse has regular and healthy droppings. Its main ingredient, psyllium husks, promotes good bacteria in the horse's gut, while also attracting water to assist in producing normal droppings. Plus, it's enriched with linseed, providing Omega 3 and 6 benefits.

Key Benefits

  • Regulates Droppings: Ensures consistent droppings.
  • Contains Psyllium Husks: Balances the horse's gut bacteria.
  • Hydration for Digestion: Helps maintain gut moisture.
