About Sand Flush

How Does It Work?

  • The main ingredient of Sand Flush is psyllium husk
  • Psyllium husk is derived from the seed of the plant, Plantago Ovata
  • ​Psyllium Husk is a highly soluble fibre which allows it to absorb a large amount of water in the gastrointestinal system
  • As Sand Flush pellets absorb water in the intestines a soft, sticky gel is formed
  • As the Psyllium gel moves through the intestines, it will pick up sand which will then pass out in the manure

     Feeding Recommendations

    For best results feed Sand Flush once daily for 5 days every month.

    It is important to NOT FEED SAND FLUSH CONTINUOUSLY, as the microbes in the gastrointestinal tract will begin to digest the Psyllium as a source of fibre and it will lose its' effectiveness.

    HORSE (500KG) - Feed 2 scoops (included), once daily for 5 days. Repeat monthly for optimum results. 

    PONY (250kg) - Feed 1 scoop, once daily for 5 days. Repeat monthly for optimum results.

     

    WARNINGS - FOR USE IN HORSES ONLY.  KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN AND OTHER ANIMALS.  DO NOT FEED TO HORSES DISPLAYING SIGNS OF COLIC.  SEEK VETERINARY ADVICE IF YOUR HORSE DISPLAYS SIGNS OF COLIC OR IN THE EVENT OF ACCIDENTAL OVERDOSE.  EACH INDIVIDUAL HORSE IS DIFFERENT AND VETERINARY ADVICE IS RECOMMENDED PRIOR TO USING THIS PRODUCT.

     Health Tips For Digestive Health

    Sand Flush is a very effective supplement to help clear sand but will only work in combination with PREVENTION.

    Treatment will not be effective if your horse continues to ingest large amounts of sand.

    Is Your Horse A SAND-O-HOLIC?

    • Does your horse graze on sandy soils ?
    • Does your horse like to nibble at the ground even if there is not much to eat ? 
    • Is there a sand sediment at the bottom of your horse's water trough ? 
    • Is there sand in your horse's manure ?

    Answering Yes to any of those questions could mean you have a sand problem.
