FounderGuard

virbac-founderguard-for-horses

FounderGuard is a clinically proven preventative supplement for feed induced laminitis and founder. It has been formulated to ensure delivery of the active drug to the hindgut and proven to control the build-up of lactic acid in the hindgut. It also reduces the risk of laminitis in horses and ponies when fed in conjunction with high grain diets. A small daily dose of the palatable granules allows high grain diets to be fed safely.

Recommended for:

  • 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 the pasture are high.
  • Young horses being prepared for sales e.g. high grain/low exercise animals.
  • Horses that have suffered laminitis or founder in the past.
  • Horses undergoing a change in diet.
  • Horses with seedy toe, white line separation, or poor-quality hooves.

Why Choose FounderGuard?

  • The ONLY proven prevention for founder - FounderGuard has been scientifically developed specifically for the prevention of grain induced founder in horses and is the only product available to prevent this problem.
  • Prevents build-up of lactic acid – When excess carbohydrates are consumed, bacteria multiply rapidly in the hindgut. FounderGuard controls the build-up of lactic acid from this fermentation process, preventing damage to the gut lining and therefore laminitis.
  • FounderGuard can be added to the daily feed as an effective daily management tool for horses at risk of founder and low-grade laminitis.
  • Scientifically formulated for performance – Helps prevent the onset of this silent ‘performance killer’ and help the performance horse reach their full potential.
