Antacid and Coating Supplement for Horses at Risk of Gastric Ulcers
Prolonged exposure of the stomach to gastric acid can cause damage to the stomach lining, resulting in a painful condition for the horse.
Research has shown that as many as 90% of horses in training have some level of stomach damage.
Gastrointestinal upsets are common amongst many horses. Symptoms may include:
- Gastric sensitivity
- Loose manure
- Loss of appetite
- Weight loss
- Stable vices
- Poor coat condition
- Unsettled behaviour
Neigh-Lox contains a combination of rapidly acting antacids. One serve is capable of neutralising the amount of gastric acid typically produced over a six-hour period.
The acid-neutralising properties of Neigh-Lox come from dihydroxy-aluminium sodium carbonate and aluminium phosphate, while aluminium phosphate and lecithin provide a physical protective coating to the stomach and small intestine.
