Help aid in Sand Colic Prevention and Gastrointestinal Health

Why Use Gritbix?

The build-up of sand and foreign matter in a horses intestines can lead to colic. GritBix is designed to help your horses gastorentestinal tract clean out the monthly build up of sand and foreign matter before it becomes a veterinary emergency. 

 

What Foreign Matter May A Horse Consume?

Horses and ponies regularly consume their environment beyond their regular feed, even in lush green paddocks. We refer to all items consumed, other than feed, as foreign matter burden. This includes: sand, dirt, grit, rocks, pebbles, sawdust, clay and shell grit.

Our trial horses have passed a range of items after GritBix from plastic, string, rope, sticks, wood, canvas, olive pips and even electric fence tape!

Subtle indicators that you horse may have foreign matter build up may include one or multiples of the following:

  •  Diarrhoea from change of feed or seasonal issues.

  •  Dull hair coat that is dry and sticks up.

  •  Weight loss or difficult to weight gain.
