GREAT PRODUCT
I LOVE this product. The anise scent if great - I think so and the horses think so !! The pellet form is so easy to feed - out of your hand or in with the grain - I hate the powdery product - too hard to feed. I also appreciate the fact they they don't add a lot of other ingredients to it, just what I want to avoid or treat sand colic- no extra added anything - thank goodness !Very palatable, but getting very hard to find. As long as I can keep getting it without having to pay shipping, I;m sold !!!!!!!

Wonderful product
I have tried several brands of sand colic treatment over the years and have found Equus Pysllium Pellets to be the most palatable to my horses (which range from Mustangs to Appendix QH). It is easy to add to their feed and I've had the best results with it for over 12 years. If you have problems with sandy soils, I highly recommend this product and Horse.com's pricing and service cannot be beat.

Benefit proven through use
I have used EQUUS Psyllium pellets as a feeding supplement for years in an effort to avoid the incidence of colic in my horses. The soil where I live is sandy and, even though my horses eat off the ground, I have not had a case of colic as long as I have been feeding the psyllium as directed - seven days out of the month - without fail.

My IR horse and two donks stay in the sand dry lot 24/7. So this supplement is important for them. It seems they like the taste of it better than SandClear. That’s key for me.

good product
Have been using this for several years. It seems to work good. Kind of expensive but the horses like it. Bought 50lb this time to reduce costs. Was good I had buckets from past purchases because the 50Lb. comes in plastic bag and cardboard box. Would have been hard to keep air tight If I had not had buckets to put it in.

One of the few psyllium products that horses will eat. I assume the flavor must be better than other products.

This is more economical than many of the others. The horses also like it much better. I live in a very dusty climate so this is very important.

My farm is basically sandy soil, so I treat my eight horses for the first 7 days of each month. I have not had sand colic since I started this treatment and one bucket lasts 3-4 months for 8 horses.

Sand colic and can use as a preventitive

These pellets have the taste to get your horse to eat it with grain. All the other pellets my horses would pick through their grain because they either didnt like the smell or taste.

There is a packaging plant for EQUUS in our area. We met someone who works there who swears by the product and we have been using it for a long time, even before we met him. I think it is the best one out there for sand control.

How many scoops are included in each size?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You're going to have to do your own math on this. (Or try other sites that carry Equus psyllium and they may have number of servings). But for a 20 lb tub (which is what I buy) here's how I figure the servings. The scoop holds 2 ounces (for all size tubs). 16 oz in a pound. At 20 pounds X 16 = 320 oz divided by a 2 oz scoop = 160 scoops. The actual servings depend on how many scoops you give your horses per feeding. In other words, if you give your horse 2 scoops per feeding (4 oz), you will have 80 servings (but still 160 scoops). Your 10 lb tub will have 80 scoops.
HOW MUCH WOULD I NEED FOR 8 HORSES, WEIGHING 800-1000 ??
D'ANN D on Nov 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I feed my horse one scoop per day for one week out of the month. (use 2 small scoops or one large scoop) Make sure you don't feed the Equus with other supplements as they will "bind" with the psyllium and pass right through the horse's system. Feed the Equus separately ie: Equus in the AM, other supplements in the PM. Each horse would require the 7 scoop per month (one scoop per day for one week a month) Hope this helps.
I am considering purchasing the 50# bag, how many horses will that treat?
GARY S on Jul 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: For maintenance, per 1,000 lb. horse: 2 scoops (4 oz.) per day for 7 days per month.
What is the recommended dosage for Equus Psyllium Pellets? My horses weigh 900-1000 lbs.
Ellie D on Jul 24, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have used this product for years as a precaution since south Texas pastures are very dry and dusty. I follow directions on container which is two scoops once a day for seven days. I feedy horses dry pellets once a day so I just add the psyllium to that. They seem to like the taste and would probably eat it even by itself.
Hello,

My 23 y.o. quarter horse has been experiencing (not all the time) watery stools for about the past year. His "cheeks" are always crusted with the dried after math of this, and sometimes gets on his back legs. My vet has suggested a daily probiotic, as well as a daily dose of 2oz. psyllium. I currently give him psyllium 7 days of the month for sand collic. Is it really okay to give him psyllium on a daily basis, long term? Thank you for your help.
Debi K on Oct 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Normally these pellets are given monthly for a week...but if your vet tells you it's fine to give your horse 2 oz daily then there shouldn't be an issue I don't think. I know my vet highly recommends this product which I was happy to hear since I've been using it for years.
Does this product come with a scoop?
Laura S on Mar 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I have used about 4 canisters/year for several years and the pre-measure scoop had been in every canister but one.
shipping charge?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The web site will not show a shipping charge and order total until the delivery address is put in during checkout. You don't have to finalize the order, but an address is needed to have the shipping cost come up. You are also welcome to call our Customer Care team for assistance. We are available 8AM-8PM weekdays, Eastern time at 888-809-0751.
What is the percentage of psyllium?
A shopper on Nov 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do not know but I know the product works great for my horses. They are checked twice a year for sand and always come up clean. I do feed a bit differently than directions which my vet said was fine. I feed 2 scoops twice a week.
