Bio-Sponge is an intestinal protectant designed to help support healthy intestinal function. This formula has substantial capacity to adsorb toxins, viruses, bacteria and free radicals. A university study showed that Bio-Sponge adsorbed 99% of Clostridium difficile and Clostridium perfringens toxins in vitro. It is widely used to support healthy gastrointestinal function in foals. Now administration of this highly effective intestinal adsorbent is easy with the release of Bio-Sponge Paste in convenient individual dose syringes.
Recommendations for use
Healthy newborn foals: For best results, following an adequate intake of colostrum administer 30 mL of Bio-Sponge Paste or 3 tablespoons (27. 6 g) of Bio-Sponge Powder mixed with 30 mL of water 6 hours after the foal first nurses the mare. Administer twice daily for 6 days or as directed by your veterinarian.
Foals with intestinal disturbances*: For best results, following an adequate intake of colostrum administer 30 - 60 mL of Bio-Sponge Paste or 3 tablespoons (27.6 g) of Bio-Sponge Powder mixed with 30 mL of water 2 - 4 times daily or as directed by your veterinarian. Discontinue use 1 day after intestinal disturbances resolve.
Adult horses with intestinal disturbances*: Administer 120 mL of Bio-Sponge Paste or one 4 oz scoop (97.5 g) of powder twice daily or as directed by your veterinarian. Amount can be increased in severe cases: administer up to 490 g (approx 5 level scoops) powder mixed in 3 litres of water once every 6 - 12 hours until the diarrhoea resolves. Amount per dose can be reduced in less severe cases. Discontinue if there is no noticeable improvement after 7 days of use.
*Discontinue if there is no noticeable improvement after 7 days of use.
Oral rehydration therapy containing a balanced mixture of glucose, glycine and electrolytes for treatment of dehydration and electrolyte imbalance.
Glucose and glycine are actively absorbed by the intestinal tract causing water and sodium to be absorbed simultaneously with these nutrients, ensuring a high degree of rehydration in scouring and dehydrated dogs, cats and young farm animals.
Glycine 6.18 g
Citric acid 0.48 g
Potassium phosphate monobasic 4.08 g
Potassium citrate 0.12 g
Sodium chloride 8.58 g
Glucose 44.61 g
Diarrhoea and dehydration in dogs, cats, lambs, foals, piglets and calves due to nutritional, bacterial or viral causes; stress from travel or surgery; convalescence.
Where specific disease control (i.e. antibiotic therapy) is indicated, it can be administered in conjunction with Lectade Solution.
Electrolyte imbalances and dehydration due to sweat loss can occur during training, racing, competition and travel in all performance horses.
RECOMMENDED FOR USE IN

Hoof Gold has been formulated after 27 years of field experience with debilitated horses feet, working with farriers and clients to produce the highest quality supplements at the best value on the market. HOOF GOLD has been specifically designed and made in Australia for our diverse and harsh conditions in all Equine disciplines.
Despite the multitude of hoof formulations available on the global market , as an experienced Equine Clinician I always found myself recommending several supplements to be given simultaneously to ensure the patient received all the nutrients required for repair of often critical hoof injuries.
HOOF GOLD ingredient composition is the result of exposure to thousands of clinical cases where effective stimulation of strong healthy hoof wall growth was vital.
