Ekygard is a nutritional support formulated by Audevard Laboratories. It is designed to provide nutritional support for horses with gastric problems. In horses, the gastric mucosa is often affected by the highly acidic environment of the stomach, particularly during exercise or when the animal is stressed. Acidity may affect the horse's quality of life, its ability to absorb food and, of course, its performance. These critical periods, therefore, require specific nutritional support. Ekygard has been supporting horse’s gastric comfort for over 10 years. Its comprehensive formula contains clay, pectin, lecithin and lithothamnion, while pre- and probiotics balance the flora. Extracts of Aloe Vera and Althaea officinalis complete the plant content, along with fenugreek, which is regarded as horses' favourite plant and optimises feed intake.
It is available in 2.4kg and 6kg tubs.
