The product deals with Stomach pain issues: Erratic behaviour, Stable vices, Irregular feeding, Tooth grinding, Weight loss through repairing stomach, improving behaviour, increasing food consumption, improving performance and attitude.
Why use GastroCare? - Horses are natural grazers and would if allowed spend up to 22 hours per day in a field grazing creating balanced gastric acid levels from saliva but gastro care helps deal with situations where saliva deacreases such as: horses who train, work or travel and their feeding regime is reduced to two or three feeds per day they do not produce enough saliva and thus their stomachs have an unnatural build up of acid (That is why 60% of sport or show horses and over 90% of race horses have gastric problems).
