Barb K on Jul 1, 2019
Our rescue has always used Equus Psyllium Pellets since they first came out. ALL of our horses eat it and ask for more. We feel confident that they are getting every last little pellets every time.
Jude E on Jun 30, 2019
Last summer my vet recommended that I use a sand cleaning product on my 4 horses even though I have never had an issue with sand colic. I tried another brand of psyllium pellets sold by a major chain. But after doing some searching on-line I found this brand on your site and even with the shipping charges it was cheaper than buying locally.
Donald R on Mar 26, 2019
it works very well<br />we have used this product for 9 years
LJ F on Mar 18, 2019
Anise flavor
Susan C on Feb 5, 2019
Perfect for my horse who's allergic to apples (which most psyllium products are flavored with). All my horses like to eat this and it does a good job removing sand from their guts.
Wendy & Alan B on Feb 1, 2019
It was the only product I saw that had no added sugar!
Robin B on Jan 31, 2019
Of the brands of sand aids I've tried, Equus is the only one my horse will eat.
Dona H on Jan 19, 2019
Works great! Lots of sand here, so we need to use this product regularly.
Penny M on Jan 10, 2019
My horse easily gets impacted due to a tumor. This really help make sure he doesn't get impacted.
Janet M on Jan 7, 2019
They really work and taste good

pellets instead of power
KANDY C on Jan 6, 2019
Great natural product that my mare will eating without problems.
Helen C on Jan 4, 2019
Most efficient, (uses less), pellets ensure they eat it versus powder, plus, after several years my 2 girls are down to just trace amounts of sand.. you can lower or raise the dosage based on fecal test results.. I'm now on the lowest maintenance dose.
Deb K on Dec 22, 2018
Good product.

thr reviews and the price.
gary g on Nov 21, 2018
It works. I had a horse at the vet and they checked for sand colic. They said whatever I was using (Equus) was working. The horses love it! I don't have to worry about getting them to eat it.
Karen Z on Nov 11, 2018
Horses like the taste and works well to control sand.

For the health of my horse.
Jorie S on Oct 29, 2018
Simply because my horses like the taste and living in a sandy environment I feel it is essential to add to their feed on a monthly basis. The shipping charges are outrageous!

Sand colic prevention. Can't beat the price for a 50# bucket.
Jason H on Aug 26, 2018
Drought has horses chewing grass to the dirt. This should help them when ingesting the dirt.
Barbara J on Aug 12, 2018
Best price, only psyllium that does not have sugar added. Horses love it.
Lorie E on Aug 6, 2018
Drought is causing horses to graze to the nubs of the field. My location is all sandy loam soil. Hope this helps from ingesting more sandy soil than they need.
Barbara T on Jul 17, 2018
This product was recommended by a friend and I couldn't be happier. Living in a sandy region I give psyllium almost daily, this is a quality product and good value for as much as I use it. Horses love the flavor!
Michele P on Jul 10, 2018
low sugar, includes licorice and in pellet form

I LOVE this product, and so do my horses. I feed this daily because of where I live, and this brand is fantastic. It is also less expensive than Sand-Clear
LISA G on Apr 30, 2018
My horses love this brand. We have fed psyllium for years, but this seems to be their favorite. Out of 18 horses, none of them bulk at eating this.
Julia B on Apr 29, 2018
Sara G on Apr 28, 2018
Better price than Sand Clear
LISA G on Mar 27, 2018
we live in the high desert, New Mexico and grassy pastures are few and far between. i've been using this for a couple of years and haven't had any problem w/ sand colic.

Tawni M on Aug 15, 2019
How long would 50 pounds last with one horse?
Megan M on Jan 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Wow! I buy the 5# for 3 horses, 1 scoop 2x a day for 7 days every 4 weeks. A 5# bucket lasts me for 4 treatments & then some. I can’t even begin to try & figure a 50# for 1 horse. I would guess though, for forever?
Is there any veterinary science that supports feeding spilling for sand colic prevention?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There have been numerous studies in various veterinary publications that indicate feeding psyllium can be effective in removing sand. The psyllium can grab the sand as it passes through the gut. The studies that showed the best sand removal efficiency involved using quantities larger than most products recommend. For over 15 years we have fed our horses about 1.5 cups Sat and Sun each week and so far we have not had a sand colic. Sand colics are prevalent in our area due to the sandy soil. The Equus pellets are highly palatable and we have never had a horse that did not love them. Some of the other brands were not palatable to our horses because they got gummy in the horses mouth while eating them.
How do you know what the price will be on future orders if you sign up for auto shiip?
A shopper on Jul 18, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You would not know the exact price in advance. It would always be the same percentage off of the list price, however.
I have a 600 pound pony, should I just do 1 2oz scoop?
A shopper on Jan 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The truth is I buy Equus psyllium in the 50 pound box because it works out to about $18 per 10 pounds in the 50 pound box. I've used this for the last five years, as its Anise (licorice) flavor is the only Psyllium I've been able to get them to eat. I have full size horses, one 1000 lb, one 1250, and one 1750 pounds. I give them a cup each which is a bit more than they need, but my vet told me I could give them several cups and it couldn't possibly hurt them. I err on the side of caution. I mix it with their cup of hydrated beet pulp and their Equipride which has a probiotic in it and is awesome for their coat, skin and hooves. I don't know if this helps or not, but be generous to your pony. Sand colic is a killer and giving too little is as bad as not giving it at all. And if it's the cost that makes you want to give the minimum every time, buy the 50 pound box and research the cheapest sites. KV and State Line do pretty good in the cost area. You will pay an extra $20 for shipping because of the weight, but the price per 10 pounds from the 50 pound box breaking down to about $18 per 10 pounds is including the shipping.
can you feed it wet?
erica v on Jun 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is my understanding that it is not a good idea to feed it wet - here's what I found: "Psyllium is a soluble fiber that forms a sticky gel when it gets wet. That “sticky gel” is what physically traps and carries out of the body any sand that has built up in the colon. So it is better the psyllium to get wet within the GI tract and not before." I add dry supplements to my a.m. feeding and wet to my p.m. feeding. Hope this helps.
how long does the 20 lb bucket do ? I have 4 horses
A shopper on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have four horses too. If you give the psyllium for seven days a month, in the dose that my vet recommends, it comes to about 2.5 pounds per horse, per month. With 4 horses, you will use about 10 pounds a month, so 20 pounds should last 2 months. That's why I buy it in 50 pound sacks, when I can get a deal, like free shipping. Good luck!
