Head Shaking can become a thing of the past. Shaker Gard provides a delicate mix of essential minerals associated with nerve health and powerful anti oxidants to reduce irritation in the nose and head. Head shaking and tossing are problems increasingly seen in horses, possibly as a result of nerve damage or irritation in the nose or head, or sensitivity to pollen and sunlight. In the latter, head shaking may be seen as a seasonal problem, but there are also horses that experience this condition all year round.

Current research suggests that head shaking may be due to hypersensitivity of the trigeminal nerve, which supplies sensation to the face, nose and muzzle. In head shakers it seems that stimuli such as sunlight or pollen which don’t affect most horses at all, can cause this nerve to fire impulses to the brain, and the affected horses are believed to experience sensations ranging from a mild, irritated tingling through to severe shooting pains like an electric shock. This hypersensitivity may be seasonal, or can occur all year round and may be triggered by exposure to sunlight, wind, pollen and dust. Some researchers suggest that equine herpesvirus (EHV) may play a role, and other propose a theory that seasonal hormonal changes may also be implicated. Shaker Gard provides a potent blend of minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, omega 3 fatty acids and phytochemicals from plants to support nerve health, as well as the respiratory, immune and endocrine systems. Shaker Gard can be used as a daily supplement long term or seasonally, either during the pollen filled spring and summer or the crisp bright autumn, or whenever your horse requires the support. It is also recommended that the horse's teeth and tack are checked before feeding the Shaker Gard.
