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.
|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.
