Did you know that grains and many ready-mixed and processed feeds are low in natural mucilage compounds? Gastro-Coat may assist your horse’s appetite and digestive function... A Dietary Supplement of Natural Compounds for the Gastro-Intestinal Tract of Horses Contains natural mucilage compounds to help the action of chewing and salivation to maintain normal gastric and upper intestinal function. Helps maintain the appetite in hard working and traveling horses. Palatable and well accepted by horses. Drug free – natural mucilage compounds – does not contravene rules of racing/competition – it is a feed supplement – not a drug based medication! Provides a source of natural mucilage and sticky gum-like compounds which are low in grain and protein meal based diets. Natural mucilages are especially low in processed feeds where the heat of steam-rolling, micronisation and extrusion damages these compounds which assist chewing and saliva in its action to maintain normal digestive function as a horse exercises, travels or when waiting to race or compete.
