TractGard® is an Equine GI tract buffer, re-hydrator, digestaid and electrolyte source that is excellent for horses prone to stomach upset. It is a pelleted mix of mineral salts, electrolytes, yeast and linseed meal designed to pull water into and lubricate the GI tract, buffer excess acids, and support normal digestion and healthy bowel function.  Get peace of mind with TractGard® knowing that your horse will drink well and have a settled stomach.

TractGard® contains:

  • Linseed Meal as a manure softener, GI tract lubricant and protein source. TractGard® is great for horses with frequent GI tract upset. Protein from linseed meal helps maintain healthy weight, and supports healthy hoof and hair growth.
  • Diamond V© Yeast to support fiber and protein digestion. Combined with the protein from linseed meal, helps maintain healthy weight and support healthy hoof and hair growth.
  • Calcium Carbonate helps maintain proper stomach pH.  Feeding TractGard® with meals may reduce discomfort associated with stomach acidity from excess grain intake.
  • Electrolyte Salts to encourage increased water intake through drinking. TractGard® helps pull water into and re-hydrate the GI tract. Can be fed when horses tend to drink less on cold nights, on long road trips, and at competitions.

TractGard® is best for:

  • Any time your horse is under stress.
  • Before shipping or showing.
  • At strange show grounds and other places where your horse may not drink.
  • Chilly nights when horses do not drink well.
  • When given to the horse in conjunction with administering NSAIDS (Bute, etc.), TractGard® may reduce the possibility of stomach discomfort.
  • TractGard® may also help reduce cribbing linked to high stomach acidity.

Fresh water should be available at all times to horses on TractGard®.

TractGard® is designed to be fed on a daily basis, or can be given as-needed as well.
Start out feeding ½oz per day, then work up to feeding 1oz-2oz per grain meal – may vary according to size of animal and amount of grain fed.

You can feed up to 6oz per day, but experiment at the recommended increments with your horse to find what dosage suits best.

Monitor your horse’s stools and water consumption carefully when feeding TractGard®.  If you notice diarrhea or loose stools, decrease the dosage.
