In nature, horses graze and secrete saliva constantly, which buffers the stomach from gastric acid. When horses are stalled, this natural buffering mechanism is disrupted and acid indigestion often results. Neigh-Lox, a pelleted antacid, is designed to restore normal stomach function and promote a normal gastric environment. Contains coating agents that quickly neutralize excess gastric secretions and protect the stomach. The manufacturer recommends a SmartPak dosage of 1-2 scoops (2-4 oz) both am + pm.
What causes gastric ulcers?
Gastric ulcers are caused by excessive acid accumulation in the stomach. The acid irritates the stomach lining and causes discomfort. This problem is common in stabled horses on high-grain and low-forage diets such as pleasure horses, horses in training and horses being prepared for sales. Increased levels of stress may also be a factor in the development of ulcers.
What is Neigh-Lox and how does it work?
Neigh-Lox contains coating agents that quickly neutralize excess gastric secretions and protects the nonglandular portion of the stomach. Neigh-Lox promotes a normal gastric environment.
How can Neigh-Lox help horses in training?
Neigh-Lox reduces the stomach discomfort often experienced by stressed horses. When a horse feels well, it eats better, trains better, races better, and shows better.
