Product arrived promptly and was well packaged. Container is a nice handy size and the salts, well, look like salts! Container appears to be great for keeping out the damp and protecting the product.

55 Magnesium Sulphate (Epsom Salts)
Verified Purchase

By on 29 April 2017

I use Epsom salts as a supplement in my Mare's diet, to calm her digestion and calm her nerves. As she is a rescue TB of uncertain background and very nervous. I find buying from Viovet very informative and straight forward, I rate this product 5 out of 5 and highly recommend it as excellent value for money.

Pony with gastric ulcers

Laila Carruthers

I currently give my daughters pony Acid Ease to help keep his ulcers at bay, would the magnesium help to keep the stress away as I feel this is the root of why he gets ulcers. he is a very sensitive pony and change can set him off I feel if he is stress-free the ulcers won't happen. I just don't know what to try next without upsetting his tummy. I have had him on the Peptozol paste and it works but I really can't afford to have the pony on it permanently. many thanks in advance

Some nervous, excitable horses do seem to be better when given a magnesium supplement, so this product could be worth trying in your horse. I do not think it will have any direct effect on ulcers affecting the stomach lining, but if your theory about stress is correct at all, then it might help indirectly. Personally I would not be confident it will work like that but it is unlikely to cause any trouble. I would be tempted to try something like Protexin Acid Ease as this is more likely to help overall.

Have just purchased magnesium sulphate what is the quantity it is fed at please as no instructions

  • VioVet Staff

One large tablespoonful per day is OK. If you give much more than this it can start to act as a laxative. The maximum amount would be one tablespoon per 100kg bodyweight.
