Virbac FOUNDERGUARD – Laminitis Preventative Supplement for Horses

Laminitis and founder are two devastating foot problems that put our dearest equines in extreme pain. One of the common causes of these most feared crippling diseases is believed to be excessive starch or sugar intake from grain or lush pasture. FOUNDERGUARD is a feed supplement that protects horses and ponies from carbohydrate induced laminitis and founder when fed in conjunction with high grain diets.

A small daily dose of the palatable granules of this Australian-made supplement allows horse lovers to feed high grain diets safely without worrying about these painful diseases. Add it to your horse’s daily feed as an effective daily management tool to prevent the risk of founder and low-grade laminitis.

Founderguard is recommended for:

  • Horses on high grain diets, e.g. gallopers, pacers, eventers, and show hacks
  • Horses grazing lush pastures that are high in sugar
  • Young horses being prepared for sales e.g. high grain/low exercise animals
  • Horses that have suffered laminitis or founder in the past
  • Horses undergoing a change in diet
  • Horses with seedy toe, white line separation, or poor quality hooves

How does it work?

FOUNDERGUARD is a clinically proven feed supplement that has been formulated to ensure delivery of the active drug to the hind gut and has been proven to control the buildup of lactic acid in the hind gut. When horses consume excess carbohydrates like starch or sugar, bacteria multiply rapidly in the hindgut. FOUNDERGUARD  controls the build-up of lactic acid from this fermentation process, preventing damage to the gut lining and therefore laminitis. They come in palatable Lucerne-based pellets and also prevent feed-induced founder in horses.

  • Provide 5g FOUNDERGUARD/100 kg bodyweight per day (e.g. 25 g/day for a horse weighing 500 kg)
  • For individual horses: 5 g FOUNDERGUARD per 100 kg bodyweight once daily
  • For Bulk feeding: 1 kg FOUNDERGUARD mixed into 250 kg feed concentrate
  • Administer the full daily dose for at least 3 days prior to any dietary change that involves an increase in grain (starch) or sugar intake.
  • It can be fed alone or mixed with other feed ingredients.
  • Introduce the dose incrementally over 4 days starting at 25% of the daily dosage and increasing by a further 25% each day until the recommended amount is administered. Commencement at the full dosage may result in decreased feed intake during the first week of supplementation.
  • The scoop provided contains approximately 25 g of supplement.
