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.

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. Life Saver

    Posted by Unknown on May 15th 2016

    Assure Plus literally saved my horse's life. He had severe sand impaction that couldn't be resolved with other products and because of his age, the vet did not recommend surgery. She did suggest trying Assure Plus, however, and that made all the difference. While my horse is not 100% sand free, it has decreased about 75%, enough to make a huge impact on his health and quality of life. He's now happy, frisky and responsive and he seems to think he's a colt again. I'm very grateful for this product.

  2. It works

    Posted by Trail Rider in Idaho on Apr 18th 2016

    My vet suggested I try Assure Plus but I was already using a similar product. She is a really good vet so I took her advice. I always try to give my horse the very best products. To my surprise Assure Plus was much better than the similar product and my horse is very happy now!
