Gastrocoat Banner

The natural supplement for a healthy gastro-intestinal tract in all horses.

Gastro-Coat™ helps optimise the function of the digestive system which includes the stomach and the small intestine. As a nutritional supplement that does not swab, Gastro-Coat can be used to help maintain a healthy gastric environment in horses that are training and competing.

Horses, which are picky eaters or poor keepers, have a sour attitude or poor performance, may benefit from Gastro-Coat as a regular feed supplement.

Gastro-Coat helps maintain the appetite in hard working and travelling horses.

Gastro-Coat™ helps equine digestive function in multiple ways:

  • Provides natural mucilage and phospholipid compounds to help the action of chewing and salivation. These compounds support the buffering capability of the gastric system to help maintain normal stomach acidity.
  • Forms a thick, sticky mucus layer inside the gastro-intestinal system. This natural, supportive layer helps to physically maintain the stomach wall integrity and also comfort during exercise or at rest. Gastro-Coat does not affect the absorption of nutrients. In fact, common horse diets often lack these beneficial layer forming nutrients as they are destroyed by processing and cooking of commercial feeds and pellets.
  • Includes a source of nucleotides and specialised yeast extracts which have a role in normal gastric and upper intestinal function.
  • Gastro-Coat™ does NOT contain prohibited compounds, such as slippery elm powder. Gastro-Coat does not contain charcoal or other binding agents which may compromise nutrient absorption.

The beneficial mucilage and phospholipids in Gastro-Coat™ are inherently low in feed mixes containing grains and protein meals in ready-mixed and stable-mixed feeds fed to horses in training. High grains feeds have reduced mucilage compounds as heat processing of grains damages these natural compounds. Thus, Gastro-Coat™ is recommended as a supplement for horses fed high grain or protein diets.

 

Directions for Use

 

Gastro-Coat™ contains natural mucilage compounds which help saliva in maintaining normal physiological and optimum digestive conditions within the stomach and upper small intestine of horses. These compounds are inherently low in feed mixes containing grains and protein meals in ready-mixed and stable-mixedfeeds fed to horses in training. Heat processing of grains further damages the natural mucilages which help to maintain optimum conditions for digestion. When supplemented in the feed, natural mucilages may help the action of chewing and salivation to maintain normal gastric and upper intestinal function.


Gastro-Coat™ can be given with rations based on prepared feeds and home-mixed rations alike – it is economical and simple to use.


Horses (400 – 600 kg body weight):  80 grams per day given in the daily feed or as a small supplement feed before exercise. 

PONIES (250 - 300kg): Half the above supplementation rates.

GASTRO-COAT™

 

A DIETARY SUPPLEMENT OF NATURAL COMPOUNDS FOR THE GASTRO-INTESTINAL TRACT OF HORSES.

 

Kohnke’s Own® Gastro-Coat™ contains natural mucilage compounds which have a role in saliva to help in maintaining normal physiological and optimum digestive conditions within the stomach and upper small intestine of horses. 
 

These compounds are inherently low in feed mixes containing grains and protein meals used to make up ready-mixed and home-mixed feeds fed to horses in training. Heat processing of grains further damages the natural mucilages which normally help to maintain optimum conditions for digestion. When supplemented in the feed, natural mucilages may help the action of chewing and salivation to maintain normal gastric and upper intestinal function. 
 

Kohnke’s Own® Gastro-Coat™, when added as a supplement to mixes containing grains and hay, helps to maintain the appetite and natural digestive function of all horses. It can be given with rations based on prepared feeds and home-mixed rations alike – it is economical and simple to use.

 

 

Q.           Can Kohnke’s Own® Gastro-Coat™ be given to foals as well?

A.            Yes. Kohnke’s Own® Gastro-Coat™ mixed into a small amount of milk and given over the tongue just before feeding, helps to provide natural mucilages to help normal salivation as the foal drinks, especially if it is a young orphan foal being fed milk with a bottle or from a bucket.
