Description

Feedmark Gastric Comfort for Horses is a special formulation which provides nutritional support to maintain a normal pH balance and healthy mucosal lining within the stomach. Provides ingredients which are gentle on the gut and is especially useful for horses that are frequently stabled, on high concentrate diets and those exposed to mental or physical stress.

The process of chewing stimulates secretion of saliva, which acts as a buffer on excess gastric acid secreted by the stomach. Forages, especially those high in Calcium (such as Alfalfa and other legumes) aid this, as fibre acts as a buffer in its own right, and by increasing saliva production during masticulation. Hence, horses on a low forage diet produce less saliva, leading to a lower stomach pH and a poor gastric environment, which can cause gastric issues. This product is particularly suitable for these horses.

Feed Gastric Comfort:

  • To support a healthy gastric environment
  • To horses and ponies on high concentrate, low forage diet
  • To horse with restricted turn out
  • To horses showing signs of anxious, strained behaviour
  • To horses showing sensitivity when being girthed and groomed
  • 12 months shelf life

To promote a healthy gastric environment:

  • Feed high forage, low concentrate diets
  • If extra energy is needed, feed fats and oils to provide slow release energy without over-loading the stomach
  • If feeding concentrates is unavoidable, split into as many meals a day as possible and mix generously with chaff to reduce rate of eating. It is recommended that you should feed no more than 1.5kg per meal - that's less than one Stubbs scoop of cubes!
  • Alfalfa is a particularly good feedstuff due to high energy levels, quality protein and buffering abilities
  • Forage should be ideally be fed ad-lib, or at 5 hour intervals to maintain saliva production and prevent gastric emptying
  • Provide forage while travelling
  • Maximise turnout
  • Try to maintain a stress-free existence for your horse!

Directions for use

Weight of Horse/Pony Approx. Height Amount per feed
Up to 400kg/880lb Under 14hh ½ scoop
Over 400kg/880lb Over 14hh 1 scoop

1 level (50ml) scoop of Gastric Comfort weighs approximately 32g/1.1oz.

Feed with each meal up to a maximum of three times per day to help maintain a healthy gastric environment.

Avoid feeding large concentrate meals (pellets, mixes and grains). Instead feed little and often throughout the day, especially concentrate feeds. Always feed at least 1.5% of your horse's body weight per day as fibrous forage (for a 500kg horse feed at least 7.5kg of hay per day). Horses showing signs of excess acid should have continuous access to forage.

Feed supplements should be fed according to body weight; height has been given as a guide. Introduce to the horses diet gradually, splitting between feeds (when applicable).

Gastric Comfort is a complementary feeding stuff for equine animals. Feedmark uses nothing in the formulation of this product that contravenes competition rules.
