Sand Shifter contains pysllium husk powder, a revolutionary bulk forming natural fibre derived from pysllium seed. Once in the horse's digestive tract, pysllium forms a fibrous gel which adheres to the sand particles preventing them from staying in the gut and causing potential blockages. Its bulk forming capacity encourages movement by peristalsis, aiding the removal of blockages from the horse's digestive tract. Aniseed flavouring normally irresistible to horses has been added to increase palatability. Available in 700g and 4kg tubs.
Daily Feeding Instructions
- For a 500kg horse feed 150g of powder for 4-5 days. Once the sand particles have been eased through the gut the horse may require feeding for a further 2-3 weeks to rid the colon of sand. For horses grazing loams or short cropped grass feed 50g twice daily for seven consecutive days, then once every 3-4 weeks or as directed by your veterinary surgeon.
