The Elsevier Veterinary Journal includes an original article with the Title: Investigation of the treatment of sand

accumulations in the equine large colon with psyllium and magnesium sulphate. **

Authors: K. E. Niinistӧ, M. O. Ruohoniemi, F. Freccero, M. R. Raekallio.


This states – Intestinal sand accumulations are commonly treated medically, but randomised controlled clinical

trials on horses are scarce. Two groups comprising 20 untreated control horses and 20 horses treated with 1 g/kg

body weight of psyllium and 1 g/kg bodyweight of magnesium sulphate – administered by nasogastric incubation

once daily for 4 days.

The result was that – significantly more treated horses cleared their sand accumulations than horses in the control



Conclusion: This study demonstrated that medical treatment of horses with sand accumulation in the large colon

by daily nasogastric tubing of a combination of psyllium and magnesium sulphate for 4 days resolved the sand

accumulation more efficiently than only preventing access to  soil.


Prebiotic inulin – Reviewed paper: Useful dietary adjuncts to manipulate the livestock gut microflora. **

Authors: A. K. Samanta, Natasha Jayapal, S. Senani, A. P. Kolte, Manpal Sridhar.


In recent years, there has been growing appreciation of the relevance of gastrointestinal microflora in both

Ruminants and non-ruminants. Unlike other feed additives, prebiotic exhibits their effect in multipronged ways for

overall increase in the performances of the animals, by enabling modulation of gut flora.


The combination of psyllium together with inulin assists the gastro and intestinal tract microflora to clear sand

accumulations but maintain an advantageous balance of gut microflora.
