Equine America Sand Out Pellets support a healthy digestive tract. Soil and pasture vary greatly throughout the UK. If a horse grazes on a sandy pasture, small amounts of sand and dirt will inevitably be ingested which, over time, may build up in the gut. 

Equally, horses and ponies grazing sparse vegetation or  given hay or feed spread out on sandy or very dry and dusty soils, can ingest varying amounts of sand. This sand can accumulate in the gut and cause digestive disturbances, adversely affecting the normal functioning of the gut.

Sandout pellets contains over 90% Psyllium husk – from the seeds of the Plantago ovata plant. Psyllium husk contains around 70% soluble fibre, and is known to absorb water rapidly (increasing in size by tenfold) and forming a gelatinous compound containing glycosides and mucilages.

It is thought that this gelatinous psyllium helps to stimulate the muscular waves or peristalsis which pushes the contents of the gut along its length, helping to expel the excess sand which may have accumulated in the gut. 

Because of the abrasive nature of sand as it moves through the digestive system, the gut lining may be effected, upsetting the balance of the vital microbiome (“gut bugs”) which normally adheres to the gut lining. So Sandout Pellets also contains a probiotic to help restore a healthy microbiome.

Sandout Pellets should be fed for 7 consecutive days in each month to avoid the gut and the microbiome becoming accustomed to the psyllium, and using it as a soluble fibre source rather than an aid to sand expulsion. Feeding for longer than 7 days should be discussed with your veterinary surgeon.

Important note for feeding: 

 Do not add to wet food, or allow to soak up moisture as this will activate the product before reaching the gut. If you do need to add to soaked feed we recommend keeping Sandout Pellets as dry as possible and adding immediately before feeding.

Pack size 2.6kg provides 4 x 7 day courses.
