Colic Help for Horses

Nutrient Buffer® is the 'original' natural equine digestive aid supplement that helps soothe and lubricate the equine gut. It also effectively aids in relaxation of intestinal tissue, so that an impaction and gas pressure can more easily release.

Veterinarian Approved

Race track veterinarians recommend and use Nutrient Buffer® as a first approach in colic attack cases, which are often provoked by diet problems and a build-up of excess acidity. Nutrient Buffer® often eliminates the need for costly colic surgery that would end a racing career.

Active Early Colic Intervention

For an active early colic, adding 1 tablespoon of epsom salts to each dose of Nutrient Buffer® will help stimulate the gastric tract to move quicker.

It is suggested that for an early colic, Nutrient Buffer® should be dosed every 15-30 min for several hours. If the colic has not successfully resolved or is violent, you need to call your vet, as there may be a twisted intestine, and no product will fix that. Surgery is the only option for a twisted gut.

Standard Treatments

For any colic, it is recommended to follow all of the standard treatments, such as walking the horse, taking the horse for a trailer ride on a gravel road, not letting them roll etc.

Always follow standard advice in both preventing and treating any colic. Do not let the horse stay in a colic mode for more than 3 hours before getting veterinary help.

First Aid Storage

Nutrient Buffer® is an important part of every equine first aid kit. It is suggested that you freeze ½ gallon for future use, and if your horse is getting Nutrient Buffer® in feed every day, you won’t likely need the first aid kit, except maybe for a friend or neighbor’s horse.
