Gastro-Shield New 2016

A complementary feeding-stuff to support horses with gastric ulcers

Gastro-Shield

Gastrointestinal ulcers are an unfortunate fact of life for many performance horses. Because ulcers can be so uncomfortable for horses, the temptation for their owners is to reach for the product that will offer the quickest relief, usually in the form of conventional drugs. However, these drugs block or buffer the horse’s stomach acid, which hinders digestion in the long term. Ten to fifteen percent of protein digestion depends on pepsin activity in the stomach and pepsin is only active in an acidic environment (i.e. when stomach acid is present). Stomach acid also acts as a defence against pathogenic bacteria colonizing the stomach and small intestine. While conventional drugs to offer immediate relief for the horse, they ultimately interfere with digestion and set the horse up for other long term problems.

 

Note: For any horse on conventional drugs we recommend the daily use of Pegus Digestaid 20g per day to support the digestive and gastric health of the horse.

The majority of horses with gastric ulcers do not Show outward clinical signs. They have more subtle signs, such as:
• Poor appetite
• Dullness
• Attitude changes
• Decreased performance
• Reluctance to train
• Poor body condition
• Poor hair coat
• Weight loss
• Excessive time spent lying down
• Low-grade colic
• Loose feces

Longer term prevention and treatment tips
As always, prevention is preferable to treatment. The following management techniques may assist in preventing ulcers:
•Feed horses frequently or on a free-choice basis (pasture). This helps to buffer the acid in the stomach and stimulate saliva production, nature’s best antacid.
•Reduce the amount of grain and concentrates use with Pegus Horsehealth Cubes and add alfalfa to the diet. Discuss any feed changes with your veterinarian or feed consultant  so that medical conditions can be considered.
•Avoid or decrease the use of anti-inflammatory drugs.
•Limit stressful situations such as intense training and frequent transporting.
•If horses must be stalled, allow them to see and socialize with other horses as well as have access to forage.
•Feed Pegus Digestaid powder in the feed 20 grm on a long term daily basis
•Feeding Gastro-Shield paste when needed

Feeding Instructions:
Feed one 80ml serving per day
– 40ml prior to morning feed

Joint-A-Flex HA Liquid

Joint A Flex 1l
Joint-A-Flex HA Liquid
Joints • Mobility • Action
Omega 3 + Glucosamine + MSM + Chondroitin + Hyaluronic Acid

Joint-A-Flex HA Liquid is a new generation feed supplement to support mobility in horses.
Omega 3 research has shown Omega 3 may safely support the relief of inflammation  and pain caused by arthritis, as well as slowing joint dehydration.
Hyaluronic Acid is composed of d-Glucoronic acid and N acetyl D glucosamine and is found in both the extracellular and intracellular matrix, especially in the soft connective tissues of horses. Hyaluronic Acid is noted for its ability to form highly viscous solutions making Hyaluronic acid the primary constituent of Synovial fluid (JOINT LUBRICANT) in the joints of horses.
Glucosamine enhances the level of glycosaminoglycans in the joint. These are the
‘building blocks’ in the cartilage matrix. Glucosamine will increase the hyaluronate
content in the joint. Hyaluronate is a fundamental component of synovial fluid – the joint lubricant.
Chondroitin Sulphate is a natural ‘water magnet’ in the joint to withstand constant
compression and concussion. Chondroitin sulphate also inhibits ‘the cartilage chewing’
enzymes that are present in damaged joints
Chelated Zinc together with sulphur forms the structural tissue we know as keratin
Vitamin E – Proven antioxidant
Lysine – Essential building block for muscle protein

Xtrolytle Powder

A powdered electrolyte horse supplement to aid the replacement of essential electrolyte losses. Xtrolytextrolyte powder
powder has been designed so that it can be mixed in the feed or dissolved in water. Xtrolyte powder is
of a lower specification than the liquid electrolytes, but is often favored for its value for money. Xtrolyte
powder meets the demand for electrolyte losses occurring after low medium intensity exercise.

Instructions For Use:

Feeding rate: Up to 100gms per horse per day.
