For Horses Grazing Sandy Pastures
Supporting healthy digestion in horses that graze on sandy pastures.
Cavalor PasSand contains psyllium, inert oils, and probiotics. Psyllium is traditionally used to prevent and treat impaction colics caused by sand. Psyllium contains mucilage and absorbs a great deal of water (it can swell up to 5 times in volume), creating a sticky mush in the horse’s intestines and helping to remove sand. Psyllium is also beneficial to gut flora.
Inert oils are not absorbed by the cells or tissue. They act as lubricants, making sand and faeces smoother and easier to eliminate. Research has shown that a combination of psyllium and inert oils eliminates sand from the gut more quickly than psyllium alone.
Cavalor PasSand also contains probiotics which help the bowel recover from damage caused by sand in the gut and bring the microflora back into balance quickly.
