Designed to Pull Water into the GI Tract & to Buffer Excess Acids
TractGard is a mix of mineral salts and electrolytes, designed to pull water into the GI tract and to buffer excess acids. Diamond V yeast to help with good digestion and Linseed meal to provide mucilage to keep the stools soft. Diamond V also helps with fiber and protein digestion which should result in improved weight gain, coat condition and hoof growth with regular use of the TractGard.
TractGard will cause your horse to drink and hence keep more water available for digestion. Especially useful in the fall and spring when horses often typically do not drink well. Make sure fresh water is available to horses getting TractGard.
It keeps the digesta more fluid, and therefore minimizes or prevents impaction colics. You will need to monitor carefully your horse's stools and water consumption, at least in the beginning. The more fluid digesta may result in more fluid stools, but this is only a temporary effect. If the stools are too loose, then decrease the dosage of TractGard.
