Sand Rid™ is an apple and molasses flavored 100% psyllium pellet with high swell volume to help encapsulate and remove sand and dirt from the intestinal tract. It supports healthy gut function to help reduce the possibility of sand colic. By swelling after absorbing water, psyllium increases bulk in the intestinal tract and is believed to induce peristalsis and decrease intestinal transit time. In the treatment of sand colic in horses, psyllium is thought to help collect sand and to help lubricate its passage through the intestinal tract. Best fed one week per month as a purge to remove dirt and sand from the gut in volume. This bulk forming fiber laxative of psyllium hydrophilic mucilloid should be part of your regular equine preventative care program.
Use for constipation resulting from too little fiber in the diet or to increase stool consistency in situations with watery diarrhea.
ADULT HORSE (1,000lbs.): Administer 1 to 1.5 scoops daily for one full week (7 days) out of every month. Give less to ponies, yearlings and foals; more to larger horses and draft breeds. Can be given during or after meal time.
Note: Scoop included, equals 5.2 ounces.
When Durvet opened for business in 1970, its doors were literally attached to a van carrying its animal health care products warehoused in a tiny 500 square foot rented facility. Durvet was the first entity in the OTC animal health market to be involved with both manufacturing and distribution, and this vision proved to be the model for the animal health supply chain business. Its original 13 distributor/owners had combined annual sales of $20 million. But from those modest beginnings, Durvet itself has grown to over $169 million in sales, while each year its 21 independent distributor shareholders sell in excess of $1 billion of animal health and agriculture products.
Over the years, Durvet has diversified its inventory with equine care and pet health lines. After tripling sales between 1994 and 2004, it expanded its facilities in Blue Springs, Missouri, and currently operates from a 78,000 square foot warehouse with state-of-the-art logistics and distribution technology. The Durvet organization employs 41 people at its Blue Springs headquarters and supports 50+ member distribution points with nearly 700 sales professionals strategically located around the country to meet the needs of livestock, equine and pet owners – offering them the product performance and affordability they demand.
