Description

A DIGESTIVE AID FOR HORSES OR PONIES GRAZING SANDY PASTURES

Soil and pasture vary greatly throughout the UK. If a horse grazes on a sandy pasture, small amounts of sand and dirt will inevitably be ingested which, over time, may build up in the gut.
Sandout should be fed for one week each month to horses or ponies grazing on sandy pastures. A veterinary surgeon may also recommend Sandout in other situations, and will advise accordingly.

Important note: Do not add to wet food, or allow to soak up moisture. Ideally mix into feed immediately before feeding.

55 Equine America Sand Out
Verified Purchase

By Julie Vickers on 8 August 2018

I have used this product a number of times now, was recommended by my vet following a horse of ours having sand colic. Very palatable fortunately as our TB was off all food at the time. Have continued to use as a preventative due to our area having sandy soil.

15 Equine America Sandout Powder
Verified Purchase

By A Geary (5pinkbutterflies) on 26 August 2017

Awful. Why did Equine America have to change to powder. I have 3 ponies that regularly need sandout, and none would touch it. They were happy eating pellets, waste of money. Why change??I won't be buying this again

15 Sand Out Powder versus Pellets
Verified Purchase

By Kathryn Pothecary on 11 July 2017

I do not understand why Equine America have decided to produce this product as a powder instead of as pellets. My horse has happily eaten the pellets for years but will not eat any feed with the powder in it. I shall, therefore, no longer, buy this product.
Equine America made this change a number of years ago and my previous horse had exactly the same reaction at the time. Then the company had the sense to revert to pellets, so they must have had a number of complaints. I do not understand why they have done this again. I can only presume that the powder is cheaper to produce.

55 For horses on muddy winter paddocks
Verified Purchase

By Jennifer Lloyd on 5 February 2016

Sandout was recommended by my vet as a precaution as my horse was showing signs of what may have been sand colic. I had never heard of this condition before but will continue using Sandout throughout the winter months in future.

Below are some recent questions we've received regarding Equine America Sand-Out Digestive Supplement for Horses, including answers from our team.

Sand out

Timothy Flint

  • VioVet customer since 2015
  • From: Derbyshire, United Kingdom

My horse has had recurring colic. After severe attack was diagnosed with possible sand colic. She's been free of colic for 5weeks now. We have used the sand out as prescribed by vet. Two weeks 80grams twice daily . a week off then back to the two weeks on. 80 grams twice daily. Would it be advisable to continue using it at a maintenance level. If so how much should I use and how often.

  • Veterinary Advisor

If your horse is grazing on sandy pasture then it would be a good idea to continue with sand out. You could discuss with your vet also but I would recommend feeding for 1 week each month at 80g twice daily.

What is in sand out other than psyllius

nick cotton (devtsda777)

  • VioVet customer since 2016
  • From: Devon, United Kingdom

does the horse require magnesium sulphate with this product for it to work
oil?
what about using a probiotic such as in product assure

thank you

  • Veterinary Advisor

Sand-out contains Psyllium seed husks, Bentonite and Sodium Propionate but no Magnesium Sulphate as far as I am aware. It doesn't need to be fed with a probiotic or magnesium sulphate in order to be effective but can safely be fed with either. Feeding your horse a probiotic is always a good idea to help maintain healthy gut function as suggested with the Assure products. You should not need to add any oil or other type of lubricant- once in the gut it will take on a gel like consistency that will lubricate the gut.

How big are the particles?

Anne

My horse chokes and can only eat soaked nuts, no hay or chaff. Can standout be mixed in wet feed?

  • Non-Executive Director

This product can be mixed in wet feed to make it easier to swallow. It is always important to mix the food thoroughly, to ensure that there are no dry pockets of food within the bucket. Then it should not be a problem. It is better to make it slightly over-moist than a bit dry for sensitive horses.
