EquiShure®

EquiShure®

Time released hindgut balancer

KERx EQUISHUREpromotes normal digestive function by aiding in the maintenance of an optimal hindgut environment. Encapsulation technology ensures targeted release directly in the hindgut.

The demands placed on horses, as both athletes and breeding animals, dictate that substantial quantities of energy-rich feeds be consumed. Disturbances in the normal hindgut environment are thought to result from overconsumption of either high-starch concentrates or pasture grasses rich in fructans (sugars).

Features & Benefits
  • Maintain normal hindgut pH to reduce the risk of abnormal hindgut function.
  • Encapsulation technology allows for targeted delivery of sodium bicarbonate to the hindgut.
  • Maintain normal digestive efficiency.
Recommended for horses
  • on moderate to high grain diets
  • grazing lush pasture
  • in hard work or undergoing sales preparation.
