  • The patented Assure Plus is one of the only equine psyllium supplements on the market available in a pellet form, allowing for easy feeding and enhanced palatability.
  • The combination of Assure Plus and Assure Guard was utilized in a clinical research study and proven to address a variety of equine digestive conditions like colic, diarrhea, poor body condition and sand accumulation.
  • Assure Plus, along with the Assure System, is the equine GI supplement of choice among veterinarians nationwide.
  • The Assure Plus pellet is uniquely designed to function as a natural psyllium flake once in the digestive system and promotes optimal GI function along with hindgut health and healing.

As the original Assure product, Assure Plus was developed by a practicing veterinarian to address the many equine digestive ailments he faced in the field.  This patented formulation boasts a heavy psyllium base combined with high quality pre and probiotics, yeast and digestive enzymes to create a powerful supplement proven to reset and maintain your horse’s GI function. 

Though routinely associated with sand removal, psyllium is a powerful ingredient with many benefits to the equine digestive tract.  When in its original, flake form, it has an uncanny water binding capacity which creates a soothing, gel-like consistency once in the GI tract that promotes optimal function, mucosal healing and has even been proven to lower blood glucose and insulin concentrations [1].  Arenus’ unique pelleting process ensures Assure Plus’ psyllium retains its ability to function exactly as it would in its original form upon reaching the digestive tract, ensuring your horse receives the full benefit possible. 

Designed to be paired with one of the Assure System daily supplements (Assure, Assure Hoof or Assure Guard), Assure Plus was utilized in a 144 horse, field trial study evaluating a variety of chronic, equine digestive conditions across the United States.  Using the Assure Guard/Assure Plus combination, the study resulted in the resolution of 100% of chronic colic cases, 80% of gastric ulcer cases, 80% of chronic diarrhea cases, 100% of sand accumulation cases and 94% of weight loss or poor body condition cases [2].

Due to its efficacy, Assure Plus continues to be recommended by veterinarians and utilized by clinics nationwide.  By adding Assure Plus to your daily Assure, Assure Hoof or Assure Guard regimen, you ensure your horse receives the best digestive support available - guaranteed.

Additional Information

DIRECTIONS FOR USE

Assure Plus is designed to be used with one of the daily Assure System products (Assure, Assure Hoof or Assure Guard) and it is recommended to utilize a 4-6 week loading period when beginning an Assure System regimen to optimize digestive function as quickly as possible.

For the loading period, feed 2 level scoops of Assure Plus daily per 1100lb of body weight, or follow the dosing chart, along with the daily Assure product that best suits your horse’s needs.

For maintenance, feed the recommended dose of Assure Plus for 7 consecutive days out of each month and continue use of the daily Assure product each day as recommended in the appropriate dosing chart.

If your horse does not receive grain, Assure Plus can be given as a “treat” or fed alone at both the loading and maintenance doses.

If palatability issues arise, add small amounts of water, oil or molasses to encourage acceptance.

It is recommended that you consult your veterinarian for specific recommendations prior to adding Assure Plus, or any supplement, to your horse’s daily regimen.

Store product in a cool, dry place.

  1. It works!

    Posted by Unknown on Apr 24th 2017

    I am careful about what I feed my horses so I was shocked to find out that my older horse had stomach issues since he eats out of a big tub. My vet recommended Assure Plus. I thought they were all the same. But, I was at the vet hospital and just wanted to get home so I bought a bucket of Assure Plus. I soon learned that similar products are not the same and Assure Plus is much much better and helped get my horse back to normal very quickly. Thank you Arenus!

  2. Not all Psyllium Supplements are created equally.

    Posted by Caroline McCormick on Mar 13th 2017

    This product is saving my mare after (10) years of being colicky and recently adding hives/weals that would errupt all over her body following a severe colic, to her problems. The healing aspects of Assure Plus along with Assure Guard are doing the job. After 8 weeks, I have a mare that is happier and healthier than she has been in years. Her intestinal health is better now and she is tolerating allergy shots and making progress. If you suspect your horse has allergies and "leaky-gut syndrome", then take this product seriously and start your horse on it. The healthy gut is the basis for the healthy horse.

  3. Finally found the correct ratio

    Posted by Michelle on Feb 17th 2017

    Horse is finally eating Assure Plus BUT only when it is broken up in to two separate feedings. If both scoops fed at the same time it seems like he has a hard time chewing and swallowing all of it. So now it is a cup of crimped oats, one scoop of Assure Plus, one single serving container of apple sauce (the moisture really helps), a dollop of corn syrup, and a few treats (apple chunks or carrot or granola bar or horse mints) tossed in. Well mixed. Now he cleans up the bucket. He gets that as soon as I get home at 7 pm and the second bucket is given around 9:30 pm.

  4. Sand seems to be moving

    Posted by Michelle on Feb 5th 2017

    Started the horse on Assure Plus on Jan 27 and had little Faith that it would do him any good. Here we are on Feb 5 and the sand is moving. He still has diarrhea but his tail is full of sand every time I wash it so apparently the Assure Plus is doing it's job. Fingers crossed that this all resolves before fly season starts!

  5. Not palatable

    Posted by Michelle on Jan 30th 2017

    Older gelding experiencing very loose stool. Vet thinks sand and highly recommended this product and Assure. Had high expectations that it would help. When the product arrived you could smell it before you could see it. Very pungent and not all that pleasant. Horse is not liking it at all, even with liberal doses of Karo syrup in the rolled oats. He eats about half of it and starts spitting it out while walking away. Won't do him any good if he won't eat it. I am hoping he gets used to it and will keep trying various incentives but not feeling optimistic right now.

  6. Assure Plus Ended My Six Year Battle with Sand

    Posted by evon on Jan 21st 2017

    I own two horses that had sand in their abdomens for about 6 years. Following my veterinarian’s instructions, I tried a 30-day cycle of Sand Clear which didn’t work. Next, I tried 30 days of Equi-Aid Psyllium which did not work, and I finally tried Equus Psyllium which also did not work. We tried 30-day cycles every 3rd month, but the sand remained. My veterinarian and I were very frustrated by the situation. She finally recommended I try Assure Plus but wasn’t sure it would do much better since she thought all psyllium products were the same. I gave it a shot, and for the first time in 6 years, my horses were sand free! My vet now knows that all psyllium products are not equal, and she highly recommends Assure Plus to her clients and tells the story of my two horses repeatedly. My horses have been sand free for more than 2 years now with Assure Plus being administered 7 days of each month.

  7. Excellent Advice

    Posted by Unknown on Nov 9th 2016

    My older horse got pneumonia and that led to discovering that he had a big issue with sand in his gut. I felt terrible because I work hard to take good care of him and thought he was just looking thinner due to age. Thanks to a wonderful vet who recommended AssurePlus! It has turned him around and he is a much happier horse!

  8. Hard Working Product

    Posted by Martha Brown on Aug 8th 2016

    Assure Plus has provided my horse great relief from his finicky gut. He remains an easy keeper with a glossy coat and plenty of energy for his 5-6 x/week workouts.

  9. My vet at Idaho Equine Hospital told me Assure Plus is by far the very best product on the market for sand removal in the horse's gut.

    Posted by Lori Moore on Aug 3rd 2016

    We use it, the horses love it and despite the sand and dirt they're exposed to, we've had good luck so far. I trust our vet and if she says Assure Plus is better by far than anything on the market, it is!

  10. Sand removal

    Posted by Unknown on Jul 20th 2016

    My horses love the taste & their stools are healthy & sand free. Thank you for a great product that works.
