Equine America Shaker Gard is a powerful formulation of antioxidants and minerals to support the delicate nerves in the head and nose. Shaker Gard can be used as a daily supplement long-term or seasonally, either during the pollen filled spring and summer or the crisp bright autumn, or whenever your horse requires the support.
It is also recommended that the horse's teeth and tack are checked before feeding Shaker Gard.
When should you feed Shaker Gard?
- If your horse or pony is head shaking, nose rubbing or head twitching
Head shaking is a complex condition. If after investigating other possible causes such as teeth, tack and sinuses you still do not have any reduction in head shaking, try Shaker Gard. Shaker Gard supports the body's natural mechanisms and responses to seasonal shaking.
How does it work?
Horse's eyes are set on the side of the head, creating a blind spot directly in front of them. To counteract this the nose is covered in sensitive nerve endings, providing information through whiskers on food and objects encountered. It is essential to keep this system of nerves free from any interruptions and irritations. Shaker Gard provides an intricate mix of specific minerals associated with nerve health, helping to vitalise nerve endings. Shaker Gard is also formulated with powerful antioxidants to cleanse and protect the nervous system.
