Feedmark Settelex (Equine)

Soothes the digestive system of horses prone to stereotypes.

Cribbing and windsucking are abnormal repetitive behaviour, also known as stereotypies. Cribbing involves the horse grasping at a fixed object with its front incisor teeth, then pulling back and sucking air into its upper throat while making a characteristic grunting sound. Windsucking involves the same action but without grasping an object. In most cases the air sucked in is not actually swallowed.

These abnormal behaviours are associated with a higher risk of digestive disturbances and general anxious demeanour. Stereotypies may be due to a combination of factors including genetic susceptibility, lack of fibrous forage, too much concentrate feed, long periods of stable confinement and isolation from other horses.

Settelex contains ingredients that help to reduce the horse's motivation to perform oral stereotypies by gently soothing the digestive system and promoting normal acid production. It is always advised to consult your veterinarian to determine the reason for such abnormal behaviours.

Details

Settelex is a feed supplement that helps to soothe the digestive system of horses and ponies that crib-bite and windsuck.


Feed Settelex:
- To all horses and ponies that windsuck or crib-bite
- 12 months shelf life

Settelex Contains:
- Aluminium hydroxide: to maintain healthy stomach mucosa and neutralize excess stomach acid
- Calcium carbonate: to promote a healthy level of acid within the stomach
- Dicalcium phosphate: to provide calcium, an acid buffering mineral
- Magnesium carbonate: to neutralise excess stomach acid

Stereotypical Behaviour:
Windsucking and cribbing used to be called vices, indicating an undesirable quality in the horse. However we now realise these so-called vices can develop due to exposure to an unsuitable, barren environment and unsuitable feeding practices that do not meet the horse's basic requirements. Such abnormal behaviours are more correctly described as oral stereotypies. Exactly why these abnormal behaviours develop is probably due to a combination of factors and a possible genetic susceptibility. Links have also been made with excess stomach acid being an important contributing factor to cribbing and windsucking. Horses left without food for long periods will suffer from excess acid because they produce stomach acid continuously as they have evolved to eat small quantities of fibrous feed continuously throughout the day.
