Equine Products UK Sand Shifter 4kg (Equine)
Once in the horse’s digestive tract, pysllium forms a fibrous gel which adheres to the sand particles preventing them from staying in the gut and causing potential blockages. Its bulk forming capacity encourages movement by peristalsis, aiding the removal of blockages from the horse’s digestive tract. Aniseed flavouring normally irresistible to horses has been added to increase palatability.

- Highly palatable, assists in easing the movement of sand particles through the gut
