More like nature intended.
In a natural state, a horse grazes constantly, chewing for many hours a day and producing gallons of acid-buffering saliva that keeps their stomach healthy. The modern horse often has limited access to pasture and hay; they are fed large grain meals and often lead busy, stressful lives. This can result in less chewing time and reduced saliva production, both of which that leave the horse prone to gastric health issues.
Why choose Neigh-Lox?
Neigh-Lox’s unique patented formula aids in the maintenance of a normal stomach environment by supporting normal gastric acid levels and a healthy mucosal lining.
Long-acting Neigh-Lox maintains a normal stomach environment for up to 8 hours.
Research shows gastric health issues are found among all horses.
It has been documented that 93% of horses in race training, nearly 60% of other performance horses, and 57% of all foals face gastric health issues. Recreational horses and broodmares are also at risk.
A research project conducted on a band of broodmares at the University of California, Davis revealed that even though the mares had not been exposed to the conditions conducive to gastric health issues, the occurrence of gastric acid imbalances in the mares was approximately 70%. Research done on recreational horses showed that imbalances were noted within a couple of days when horses are stressed due to travel or other seemingly minor changes in their routine.
Support a normal stomach environment with Neigh-Lox.
- Neigh-Lox has the capacity to support a normal environment for a long period of time (minimum 6-8 hours); most digestive supplements do so for a much shorter period.
- Neigh-Lox maintains a healthy stomach by supporting normal gastric acid levels and a healthy mucosal lining.
When to use Neigh-Lox
Horses maintained under certain management conditions are at an increased risk for developing an unbalanced stomach environment. Horses that are unable to graze continually due to busy training and competition schedules, those on restricted diets or those consuming high starch diets, and horses that are confined for any reason also risk developing imbalances. In these cases, supplementation with Neigh-Lox helps support a well balanced, normal stomach environment.
Research shows that even seemingly minor changes in a horse’s routine, such as relocation from one pasture to another or a weekend outing, can set a horse up for gastric health issues. Supplementing with Neigh-Lox during times of change or stress helps maintain a healthy stomach.
Neigh-Lox is recommended for:
- Horses and ponies of all ages (from foals to seniors) experiencing changes in their routines or other stressful conditions
- Horses and ponies prone to gastric health issues
- Horses and ponies that are completing a course of omeprazole
- Horses and ponies confined to a stall or dry lot where grazing is limited
- Horses and ponies with busy training or competition schedules
- Horses and ponies being transported or relocated
- Horses and ponies on restricted diets or those consuming large amounts of starchy concentrate
Specifically designed to support a healthy stomach.
Neigh-Lox has a research-proven, patented formula that supports a healthy stomach much in the same way saliva does when a horse is able to graze all day long.
Neigh-Lox is long-acting and has the ability to maintain a normal stomach environment for extended periods of time (minimum 6-8 hours), while other digestive supplements do so for much shorter periods.
Neigh-Lox’s pelleted form makes it easy to administer, either along with a meal or on its own.
