Ingredients Per 1 Syringe (60cc)
Bio-Sponge is supportive for intermittent cases of diarrhea. It is also widely used with new foals to support intestinal health. Many veterinarians rely on Bio-Sponge® to help support both foals and adult horses with occasional intestinal disturbances, as well as post-operative cases in their practice.
Many horses will consume Bio-Sponge® Powder with their feed or supplements. However, if needed, Bio-Sponge® Paste can easily be made from the powder to aid in ease of administration. This can be especially helpful for foals, picky eaters or horses that are not eating due to illness.
Step 1: Mix recommended dose of powdered supplement with liquid to achieve desired consistency. Water, apple sauce flax oil or molasses are commonly used.
Step 2: Start with syringe fully plunged, then draw mixture up syringe by pulling plunger out from barrel of syringe.
Step 3: Administer full dose to animal orally.

“Einstein is an OTTH. He's athletic, willing and smart. Plus he is sweet and calm, the perfect horse for an amateur!!! Beauty is more than skin deep when talking about my boy. Einstein was having digestion issues causing his tail to be a mess! Since putting him on Bio Sponge and Platinum Performance he is no longer 'squirting' and has a beautiful tail too!!”

“Shotgun had pneumonia when he was a 3 years old. He had to be on antibiotics for several months. With the help of Bio-Sponge, he never went off feed and never developed diarrhea! He is now fit and healthy and is shown in the reining and reined cow horse events.”
