Bio-Sponge is supportive for intermittent cases of diarrhea. It is also widely used with new foals because exposure to infectious agents is especially dangerous for these young horses. Many veterinarians rely on Bio-Sponge® to help support both foals and adult horses with intestinal disturbances, as well as post-operative cases in their practice.

“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.”
