INDICATIONS

FOUNDERGUARD® reduces the risk of laminitis in horses and ponies when fed in conjunction with high grain diets.

RECOMMENDED FOR USE ON

  • Horses on high grain diets e.g. gallopers, pacers, eventers and show hacks
  • Horses grazing lush pastures particularly during spring and autumn when sugar levels in pasture are high
  • Young horses being prepared for sales e.g. high grain-low exercise animals
  • Horses that have suffered from laminitis or founder in the past
  • Horses undergoing a change in diet
  • Horses with seedy toe, white line separation or poor quality hooves 

DIRECTIONS OF USE

FOUNDERGUARD® should be administered at the full daily dose for at least 3 days prior to any dietary change that involves an increase in grain (starch) or pasture (sugar) intake.

FOUNDERGUARD® is presented as a palatable lucerne-based pellet. It can be fed alone or mixed into a feed.

Dosage:

  • Individual horses: 5g FOUNDERGUARD® per 100kg bodyweight once daily
  • Bulk feeding: 1kg FOUNDERGUARD® mixed into 250kg feed concentrate

Introduce the dose incrementally over 4 days starting at ¼-½ the daily dosage. Commencement at the full dosage may result in decreased feed intake during the first week of supplementation.

FOUNDERGUARD® can be fed alone or mixed with other feed ingredients to provide 5g FOUNDERGUARD®/100kg bodyweight per day (e.g. 25g/day for a horse weighing 500kg).

FOUNDERGUARD® can be fed once per day or in 2 equal feeds each of 2.5g/100kg bodyweight. The scoop provided contains approximately 25g when loosely filled. FOUNDERGUARD® can also be administered by inclusion in complete concentrate rations by thoroughly mixing 1kg FOUNDERGUARD® with each 250kg of feed.
