Ailments

  • Convalescing

    Occasionally, there are times when horses and ponies need a specific diet tailor made to support nutritional convalescence. For horses and ponies that are on box rest or recuperating post-surgery, we have developed Convalescent Diet, a dietetic feedstuff that has antioxidant and calming packages. Our Ultimate Balancer is also equally suitable for convalescing horses that do not require extra calories.

  • Gastric Ulcers

    Gastric ulcers in horses and ponies can have several side effects such as reduced appetite, reluctance to work and low-grade colic, which are a result of an erosion of the stomach lining. The addition of a herbal liquid such as Ulca-Tonic acts to help protect the delicate lining of your horse’s stomach and intestinal tract.

  • Joints

    Providing nutritional support for your horse’s joints and muscles is vital for helping to combat the discomfort caused by any joint and mobility related problems. Some horses are naturally predisposed to joint conditions such as arthritis and as horses get older, joint conditions are often more evident. Try adding one of our herbs and supplements into your horse’s feed today.

  • Mud Fever

    If your horse or pony suffers with mud fever, the winter can be potentially worrying time, especially if the rain causes wet and muddy field conditions. Horses that are prone to mud fever normally have white socks, sensitive skin or are heavily feathered. Prevention is certainly better than cure and you can help protect your horse by using Mud Heal.

  • Respiratory Problems

    A healthy respiratory system is an important part of general health and there are many management factors that can compromise the respiratory system. Stabling horses for long periods of time and feeding dusty forage can irritate your horse’s respiratory tract and in serious cases, can lead to Recurrent Airway Obstruction (RAO). Provide nutritional support by adding Breathe-Free to your feed.

  • Tying Up

    Recurrent Exertional Rhabdomyolysis (RER) is more commonly referred to as tying-up and is normally seen in Thoroughbreds, Standardbreds and Arabians that are in high levels of work. Our ERS Pellets have been designed specifically for horses with this condition, as they are very low in starch and very high in oil and fibre. The feed is also supplemented with electrolytes.

  • Sweet Itch

    The summer months bring the plus points of longer warmer days and drier paddocks, but the season can also increase the risk of sweet itch. It can be distressing to see your horse furiously scratching against trees and fences desperately trying to relieve the irritation caused by an allergic reaction to biting insects, so why not give Itch-Free a try.
