Sand Rid™ is an apple and molasses flavored 100% psyllium pellet with high swell volume to help encapsulate and remove sand and dirt from the intestinal tract. It supports healthy gut function to help reduce the possibility of sand colic. By swelling after absorbing water, psyllium increases bulk in the intestinal tract and is believed to induce peristalsis and decrease intestinal transit time. In the treatment of sand colic in horses, psyllium is thought to help collect sand and to help lubricate its passage through the intestinal tract. Best fed one week per month as a purge to remove dirt and sand from the gut in volume. This bulk forming fiber laxative of psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid should be part of your regular equine preventative care program.
Use for constipation resulting from too little fiber in the diet or to increase stool consistency in situations with watery diarrhea
