EquiShure® is a unique supplement shown to help to maintain a normal pH in the horse’s hindgut, particularly in horses receiving diets with a high cereal inclusion.
EquiShure® acts as a time-released hindgut buffer, by supplying an encapsulated source of sodium bicarbonate to the colon and caecum. EquiShure® can be used to help maintain a normal pH during the intense periods of a stressful competitive season, or when travelling, or at any time when there is a greater reliance on high starch and cereal diets without adequate levels of forage. At-risk horses often express one or more signs that can reduce athletic performance, growth or reproductive potential, such as loss of appetite, digestive discomfort, wood chewing and other stereotypies, with concomitant loss of performance.
EquiShure® is produced by the Kentucky Equine Research Center. This scientific organisation was founded in 1988 by Dr. Joe Pagan and is known worldwide as an independent consultant for feed manufacturers. As a result, all KER products are unique, progressive feeds based on formulas that take into account the scientifically proven nutritional needs of horses.
