When a horse can't eat or drink due to a colic event, it's important to find quick relief. Equine Enteric Colloid's stomach tube application method is an extremely effective way to provide fast lubricating relief and digestive tract fortification.  For over 20 years, veterinarians have used this psyllium-based product to engulf the sand and small debris that are often the cause of a colic event.  Use Equine Enteric Colloid to help combat digestive issues and restore health.

Equine Enteric Colloid is put into a suspension and is administered by a veterinarian via nasal tube.  It is a fast acting stool softener, provides digestive tract lubrication, and promotes relief from a colic event.  Equine Enteric Colloid also helps to restore and maintain normal digestive tract micro-flora with microbial-yeast-enzyme fortification.

Equine Enteric Colloid is a specially designed natural fiber colloid specifically designed for horses that habitually consume excessive amounts of sand and other indigestible materials such as bark or wood. When consumed, this natural colloid forms a mucilaginous, lubricating, dispersible film when it comes in contact with the liquid ingesta of the digestive tract. This non-irritating, lubricating film can readily be seen and felt when the product is mixed with water in a glass or small container. Just as this oily film can be seen in a glass of water, the oily film or stool-softening, lubricating film can be visualized on the outside of the stool or throughout fecal matter once the horse has consumed sufficient amounts of Equine Enteric Colloid and water to produce the film.

Equine Enteric Colloid is suspendible and highly dispersible in water for short periods of time after mixing in water. Consistency and concentration of Equine Enteric Colloid in water can be varied depending upon preference of the veterinarian administering the suspension. Equipment required for stomach tube application should be assembled and put in place ready for use prior to mixing Equine Enteric Colloid in water.

Equine Enteric Colloid is ideal for use as a follow-up top dress whenever horses are treated with chemical laxatives or mineral oil. The follow-up top dress feeding of Equine Enteric Colloid helps to maintain a soft, oily stool for an extended period of time.

Equine Enteric Colloid is apple and strawberry flavored, and has a pleasant, sweet taste that appeals to most horses. It can be top dressed on the grain ration or stirred into the grain on a daily basis, making it ideal for use in horses that habitually consume sand and other indigestible feedstuffs.

The viable microbial cultures and potent yeast-enzyme active ingredients in Equine Enteric Colloid are designed to help promote and maintain the normal digestive flora in the digestive tract. Horses that habitually or continuously consume sand and other indigestible feedstuffs should be maintained on Equine Enteric Colloid as long as signs of undigested feed or foreign matter persist in the stool or feces. The electrolytes in Equine Enteric Colloid are similar to those found in EQUINE BLUELITE, and the two products may be used in conjunction with each other when signs of dehydration are observed.

For horses 600 to 900 pounds body weight that habitually eat sand or other indigestible feedstuffs, daily top dress four to eight ounces of Equine Enteric Colloid. Continue top dress administration for as long as horses consume sand, coarse dirt and indigestible feedstuffs. Adjust amount of Equine Enteric Colloid top dressed proportionally to the size of the horse. Horses and ponies that do not  consume grain voluntarily or show signs of being off feed should only be fed Equine Enteric Colloid or given the product through alternative ways of administration, such as a stomach tube, as directed by a veterinarian.
2. STOMACH TUBE APPLICATION: For horses and ponies that have consumed a large amount of sand, dirt or indigestible feedstuffs at one time, Equine Enteric Colloid should be administered via stomach tube by preparing a suspension. Stir or mix eight ounces of Equine Enteric Colloid with two to three quarts of water for horses between 600 and 900 pounds body weight. Administer Equine Enteric Colloid immediately after preparing suspension, adjusting the amount administered proportionally to the size of the horse.
3. FOLLOW-UP APPLICATION: After administering Equine Enteric Colloid via stomach tube, administer Equine Enteric Colloid for five to seven days as a top dress on the grain ration.
4. MEASURE ENCLOSED: Holds approximately two ounces of Equine Enteric Colloid.

CAUTION: Horses and ponies showing signs of abdominal pain, colic, impaction, inappetence or not voiding properly should be examined by a veterinarian and maintained under the care of the attending veterinarian as long as signs or symptoms persist.
