Equine America Sand Out Pellets 2.6kg
Horses and ponies grazing sparse vegetation or given hay or feed spread out on sandy or very dry and dusty soils, can ingest varying amounts of sand. This sand can accumulate in the gut and cause digestive disturbances, adversely affecting the normal functioning of the gut.
Sandout Pellets contains over 90% Psyllium husk – from the seeds of the Plantago ovata plant. Psyllium husk contains around 70% soluble fibre, and is known to absorb water rapidly (increasing in size by tenfold) and forming a gelatinous compound containing glycosides and mucilages.
It is thought that this gelatinous psyllium helps to stimulate the muscular waves or peristalsis which pushes the contents of the gut along its length, helping to expel the excess sand which may have accumulated in the gut.
Because of the abrasive nature of sand as it moves through the digestive system, the gut lining may be effected, upsetting the balance of the vital microbiome (“gut bugs”) which normally adheres to the gut lining. So Sandout Pellets also contains a probiotic to help restore a healthy microbiome.
