Cavalor Gastro Aid creates a healthy environment in the stomach by neutralising gastric acid and protecting the stomach wall.
A horse’s stomach produces acid continuously, making it very susceptible to developing wounds or sores. The herbs in Cavalor Gastro Aid help to protect the stomach wall against excess acid.
They provide extra support for the stomach by stimulating saliva production and promoting the healing of ulcers.
DID YOU KNOW
A horse’s stomach is constantly producing acid. When the stomach is empty, this acid will irritate the stomach wall, causing sores or ulcers. There are several ways to protect the stomach from the effects of excess acid.
Ideally, the horse should have hay available ad libitum, as the fibre in hay creates a protective fibrous coating in the stomach which absorbs acid and prevents it from attacking the stomach lining.
In addition, the horse’s feed should be low in sugar and starch. Sugar and starch increase acid production.
Feed management is essential to preventing stomach ulcers, but once ulcers are diagnosed, they are more likely to recur. It is therefore recommended that horses prone to stomach ulcers receive daily support.
HOW TO USE
Once the horse has recovered and is eating better, you can switch from the paste to the powder or liquid version.
The liquid and powder versions can also be used as daily preventive measures for horses prone to stomach ulcers.
Unlike omeprazole, it does not shut down stomach acid production, but works to protect the stomach from acid damage.
Recommended use of Gastro Aid: Mix 30 g into feed daily for at least 4–6 weeks. 1 measuring scoop = 10 g. Maximum 100 g per day
