ProHorse Psyllium Sand Away Fibers product description

Ideal product for horses and ponies that eat sand or are on poor meadows and therefore get too much sand.
Use and administration
A maintenance cure of 6-7 days can be given each month, unless a veterinarian prescribes otherwise. With administration longer than 7 days, the effect can be reduced. Mix through the feed. To prevent blowing away, the product can be lightly moistened. In combination with omega oils (eg linseed oil) psyllium can remove more sand from the intestines. Horses often find flaxseed oil tasty, which also makes the psyllium easier to eat. Always ensure sufficient roughage.
Feeding advice:
Pony: 50 grams twice a day
Horse: 100 grams twice a day
Psyllium seed
More and more veterinarians are convinced that the binding effect of psyllium seed actually helps to drain sand into the gastrointestinal tract. Psyllium seed is a 100% natural fiber that binds the moisture in the intestines and turns into a jelly. This has a dual effect. First, it stimulates the movements of the intestines, making the horse better able to drain the sand. In addition, psyllium provides a jelly-like sticky mass in the intestines. The sand left behind in the intestines adheres to this and is thus transported away. Psyllium seed appears to have the best effect if you give a 7-day cure. This treatment can be repeated once a month. With daily use for a longer period of time, the effect on the intestinal function becomes less; the intestines become accustomed to the intestinal contents and are less stimulated after a while. Psyllium has been used for some years in horses that eat sand and there are absolutely no known side effects. Psyllium can be given as a precaution without any worries.
Sand in the intestines
It is easy to test yourself if your horse has sand in the intestines. Take 5 to 6 manure balls and put them in a bucket, half full with water. When there is more than one teaspoon of sand on the bottom after an hour, the horse has received too much sand. In this case it is advisable to give a psyllium cure.

Good product

Yes, I recommend this product

Pros: good value for money

Cons: Little information about the use on the packaging, is not eaten easily by all horses

One of the few products that only contains psyllium, and this is also the most affordable. It is difficult to carry.

from Egmond aan zee at :

Unfortunately, lightly ground fiber seems to be okay.

Yes, I recommend this product

Pros: pure, without additions, cheaper than a veterinarian because of sand colic

Cons: It is a pity that t is ground like the pure fiber, Give advice what I always get is 100gr 1x per day for 5 to 7 days

The fiber is finer ground if I'm used to it. I still have to see if this works out, and whether my horse is eating just as easily. It also says on the packaging that I have to give much more than I have ever been advised. And 2x instead of 1x per day, this is simply not possible.

from Swalmen at :

Very nice stuff!

Yes, I recommend this product

Pros: good value for money, the horses eat it easily because it is done by food, does what it says. great stuff

Cons: would be more interesting in a bucket to store, Packaging can be firmer, Little information about the use on the packaging

I mix the flakes with the slobber and then it is eaten leftover by the ponies. Disadvantage I find the packaging. The bag is very thin and fragile. I put the flakes at home in a lockable bucket. Also on the package is not very clear what the amount is that they should get

from Luttelgeest at :

Works well

Yes, I recommend this product

Pros: easy to use, the horses eat it easily because it is done by food, good value for money

On the recommendation of the veterinarian to carry due to sand in the manure. One week course lined with flaxseed oil and slobber. Was eaten well in this way. Now feed it twice a week by the slobber for some extra fibers. Also nice that it comes in a big package.
Question and Answer

Amanda op 26-07-2018:

Question: Can these fibers be mixed by the slobber?

Answer: Yes the Zandweg but mixed by the slobber

Gaby op 18-04-2018:

Question: how much is 50 grams how can I weigh it on a regular basis

Answer: Unfortunately there is no scoop here. However, you can order this separately with article number: Z100079.

Monique op 27-02-2017:

Question: for how many days is a bag of psyllium sand-way fibers? is 1 bag also 1 cure or?

Answer: It is advisable to give the psyllium for at least 1 week and at the end of the week to see if a longer period is needed. This is only necessary if there is still sand in the manure. Depending on how much and how long you are feeding, the bag can be used for more than 1 cure.

Gertje op 27-12-2016:

Question: Can I give psyllium sand-way fibers to a pregnant mare?

Answer: There are no indications that psyllium would affect pregnancy.

Christel op 08-06-2016:

Question: Do the fibers have to be dry or wet over the feed?

Answer: The fibers can be given dry or wet with the feed.

Annemarie op 15-02-2016:

Question: How long do I have to give the psyllium sand-way fibers?

Answer: Dear Annemarie, It is best to give the sand-way fibers a week. If you do not have sand in the manure after that week, you can stop it for a while. If you still find sand in the manure after this week, it is better to continue feeding the fibers as long as necessary. There is no harm in feeding these fibers for a longer period of time. With kind regards, customer service Agradi.

wim sonnemans op 28-01-2016:

Question: our haflinger has had spray droppings for a month now and then. We give good hay and chunks and beet pulp. What do you advise us. Thanks in advance.

Answer: We are of course not a veterinarian and can not give 'appropriate' advice because we do not know your horse. A Psyllium cure can help, but perhaps it is wise to consult the vet. With kind regards, Agradi

Michelle op 27-01-2016:

Question: How much is the right dose to give to a 500 kg horse?

Answer: We recommend one tablespoon for ponies and two tablespoons per day for horses. With kind regards, Agradi Customer service
