This product was recommended to me. My horse was very irritable, whether I was rugging him, saddling him and just in general. Big difference now after 4 months. No more trying to bite!!!
Certain fungi found on fresh pasture grasses, conserved roughage (hay, chaff, straw) and in grains can produce secondary compounds called mycotoxins. Several types of mycotoxins exist which may interact, especially under favourable environmental conditions such as in warm and humid climates. Mycotoxins may contaminate feeds or grains and are hard to detect due to their odourless, tasteless and invisible presence.
The horse’s digestive system is sensitive to the effects of mycotoxins, as the gastric juices in the stomach cannot effectively deactivate the mycotoxins and these therefore enter the sensitive small intestine and hindgut. Once mycotoxins reach the hindgut they may affect the intestinal wall or enter the horse’s blood stream, which can result in respiratory, gastrointestinal, neurological and reproductive issues.
Safeguard EQ may be of benefit to horses exhibiting one or more of the following symptoms: Stringhalt, aggressive or unruly behaviour, hypersensitivity / ‘girthiness’, poor coat quality, diarrhoea, poor conditioning and rye grass staggers.

Safeguard EQ can be added directly to your horse’s feed.
