Verified Purchase

the 1kg tub was just big enough to do the 5 day clear out for all 3 cobs and the mini Shetland.
iv used this product whenever my horses are on sandy ground as its been recommended by vets to reduce the risk enteroliths forming in the gut and causing blockages

No scoop or measure of required dose

  • VioVet Staff

Hello,

Thank you for getting in touch.

The amount needed is 20g per 100kg bodyweight in feed for 5 days. Lower levels can be used for longer periods to help in long-term problems.

Hope that helps.

Feeding per body weight for 5 days or lesser amount for ongoing problems. What would be the dossage for a horse that is subject to colic?

  • VioVet Staff

The manufacturers recommend giving 20g per 100kg body weight in feed for 5 days. Lower levels can then be used for longer periods if they are proving to be effective. You would gradually reduce the amount to half and then a quarter of the above. This might be helpful, depending on the underlying reason for the colic. Your worm control should be good of course.

Do I add water to physillium husks

Sam

Just wondering whether I need to add water to physillium husks before feeding? As it swells when wet was concerned given dry might be problematic but assumed it would work better if it swells in the gut??

  • VioVet Staff

It should be dampened before given to the horse, but does not need to be soaked. It will gradually swell up more after being swallowed, but this is not a problem if you give the correct amount (approximately 20g per 100kg of horse).
