Virbac FounderGuard 1kg

FOUNDERGUARD is a clinically proven preventative supplement for feed induced laminitis and founder. It has been formulated to ensure delivery of the active drug to the hind gut and proven to control the build up of lactic acid in the hind gut. A small daily dose of the palatable granules allows high grain diets to be fed safely.

Reccommended For:

  • Horses on high grain diets e.g. gallopers, pacers, eventers and show hacks
  • Horses grazing lush pastures particularly during spring and autumn when sugar levels in pasture are high
  • Young horses being prepared for sales e.g. high grain/low exercise animals
  • Horses that have suffered laminitis or founder in the past
  • Horses undergoing a change in diet
  • Horses with seedy toe, white line separation or poor-quality hooves

WHY CHOOSE FOUNDERGUARD?

 

  • The ONLY proven prevention for founder - FOUNDERGUARD has been scientifically developed specifically for the prevention of grain induced founder in horses and is the only product available to prevent this problem.
  • Prevents build-up of lactic acid When excess carbohydrates are consumed, bacteria multiply rapidly in the hindgut. FOUNDERGUARD controls the build-up of lactic acid from this fermentation process, preventing damage to the gut lining and therefore laminitis.
  • FOUNDERGUARD can be added to the daily feed as an effective daily management tool of horses at risk of founder and low-grade laminitis.
  • Scientifically formulated for performance Helps prevent the onset of this silent 'performance killer' and help the performance horse reach their full potential.
