What are Psyllium Husks for Horses?

Psyllium Husks are naturally occurring plant fibres from the shrub-like herb, Plantago ovata. They are highly digestible and absorbent, making it an excellent choice to normalise your horses bowel movements and reduce severity in times of discomfort.

Psyllium husks contain soluble dietary fibre, which helps maintain normal equine digestive function and aids in the absorption of nutrients.

Our powdered psyllium husk can be added to the bucket feed, acting as an absorbent sponge, supporting the return of normal digestion function.

The Benefits of Psyllium Husks for Horses

  • Soaks up water in the gut and makes bowel movements much easier
  • Add to the bucket feed to help promote regularity and overall digestive health
  • Psyllium is a prebiotic that will promote healthy colonies of good bacteria
  • Can increase stool thickness and slow down its passage through the colon

Psyllium provides soluble fibres that pass through the foregut and hindgut without being completely broken down or absorbed. Instead, it will absorb water, becoming a viscous compound.

How to feed psyllium to horses?

Our psyllium husk powder for horses can be added to the bucket feed and mixed in with your usual fast soak fibre.

Precautions

Horse should have access to drinking water when feeding psyllium husk powder. If feeding the higher feed rate in times of discomfort then feed for a maximum of 5-7 days.
