  • Horses on high-cereal diets, or grazing lush pasture
  • Horses with a poor appetite, decreased feed intake or weight loss
  • Horses with loose droppings that may be strong smelling
  • Horses with unexplainable behavioural problems, such as wood chewing, weaving or box walking

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Targeted delivery of sodium bicarbonate to the hindgut
  • Stabilises hindgut pH
  • May improve feed efficiency through effective hindgut function

DESCRIPTION

EquiShure is a unique supplement shown to help to maintain a normal pH in the horse’s hindgut, particularly in horses receiving diets with a high cereal inclusion.

EquiShure acts as a time-released hindgut buffer, by supplying an encapsulated source of sodium bicarbonate to the colon and caecum. EquiShure can be used to help maintain a normal pH during the intense periods of a stressful competitive season, or when travelling, or at any time when there is a greater reliance on high starch and cereal diets without adequate levels of forage. At-risk horses often express one or more signs that can reduce athletic performance, growth or reproductive potential, such as loss of appetite, digestive discomfort, wood chewing and other stereotypies, with concomitant loss of performance.

FEEDING RECOMMENDATIONS

Top-dress EquiShure on feed. Feed 30 to 180 g daily according to the horse’s size and risk levels. Use the table below to determine recommended daily amount based on the horse’s cereal intake, forage source, and weight. For best results, divide the amount equally among feeds.

SERVINGS AND CONTAINER SIZES

Serving size: 60 g (30-g scoop included)

Container sizes: 1.25 kg (20 servings), 3.6 kg (60 servings), 7.2 kg (120 servings), 18 kg (300 servings)

    controlled grazing and this product have made a huge difference - pony so much more forward and less tucked up - every one happier!


  2. brilliant life saver 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Jun 2015

    After 6 months of being ill, at times being close to being put to sleep my pony was started on equishure and within a few days he was bright and happy and started back in work within a week. I really thought he had come to his end and I was amazed.


  3. fantastic product 5 Star Review

    Absolutely brilliant it has changed my mare beyond belief. Won't be without it now.


  4. What a difference 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Feb 2015

    I bought Equishure following a trial of a few days that my friend gave me. I've been feeding it to my horse as a feed topped for about a week now and he seems so much more calm, he's willing to go forward and is much more loving. Hope this continues!


  5. Hind-gut buffer 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Dec 2014

    I've used this product for the last two years to provide gut support to my mare during the Spring grass flush and have been able to turn out a very grass-sensitive horse with a muzzle where previously she would have stood in; but not thought to use it for the Autumn flush. My trimmer recommended it and with the air temperatures remaining so moderate and the grass continuing to grow on, even in November, it's reminded me that protection against excessive sugar/starch levels in the growing grass are still required.


  6. Disappointed 2 Star Review

    Posted by on 20th Nov 2014

    I purchased Equishure because my horse has all the symptoms of hind gut acidosis. It is expensive but definitely worth the money, if it works! However, it made no difference to my horse whatsoever and his symptoms persist.

    I am sincerely disappointed because it has good reviews but clearly it doesn't work on all horses.


  7. Equishure 1 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Nov 2014

    Sadly I had to take my horse off this product as it gave him sloppy stools. Was disappointed with all the good reviews it got.


  8. this product saved our lives 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th May 2014

    My horse was tucked up, aggressive around food, hated being groomed, was herd bound, wouldn't pick up his back feet, was spooky and unrideable.
    All this has gone now thanks to controlled grazing and equishure. He is back to being a lovely calm pony happy in his work and his environment, with a relaxed flank and shiny coat. Would recommend this product to anyone.
