SandAway® is made from psyllium husks – a powerful but natural way to regulate the bowel movements of horses and a valuable way of expelling sand from the gut.
Psyllium husks for horses are made from the outer coating of the seeds of the psyllium plant and are a rich source of soluble and insoluble dietary fibre. The husks are able to absorb water and this makes them expand and become mucilaginous. This gelatinous mass then moves through the digestive system helping to support natural peristalsis (gut movement). In cases of loose droppings, the psyllium husks give the stools bulk.
Horses cannot digest psyllium husks, so the husks can help to eliminate undigested and unwanted material from the gut – including sand – which is transported and expelled at the same time through the stools. The husks are also helpful in eliminating toxins.
Sand colic can be a problem for horses that live and graze on dry, sandy pastures. The horse can unwittingly ingest sand which – left untreated – will eventually form a dangerous blockage in the horse’s gut.
