When your horse doesn't feel well or is in pain, you know it. And when your horse just can’t perform as you know he can, you’re concerned. He is dependent on you to figure out what’s wrong and then fix the problem.
You suspect the problem involves his digestive tract. You ask: Did the horse eat something; maybe the rich, sweet new grass in the pasture? Has he got an accumulation of sand and other material he couldn't digest sitting in his gut? Could it be equine colic or a parasite your horse picked up somewhere along the way? You try to determine the cause and deal with the malady yourself or seek the assistance of a veterinarian. Does this sound familiar?
Horses and ponies face a common problem: the accumulation of foreign material in their gut, like sand, dirt, gravel, grass balls, other undigested matter, toxins and harmful bacteria. Their winding digestive system presents the risk of these accumulated materials becoming trapped in the gut, creating serious health problems including equine colic.
The solution is an ancient yet simple and effective way of cleaning the horse’s digestive system and avoiding colic in horses. Independent research has shown that psyllium husk, as a feed supplement, assists in the control of colic in horses due to sand, endoparasitism, and other maladies resulting from toxins and lesions in the horse’s gut. Steering clear of equine colic or other problem before they start is optimum. By removing the rubbish, the horse could have a clean digestive system and avoid many future health problems especially equine colic.
Psyllium (Plantain Ovarta) is an annual herb native to Asia, the Mediterranean, and North Africa. It is commercially grown in India and Pakistan. The husk of the psyllium seed contains about 70% fiber, making it one of the highest naturally occurring sources of soluble fiber available. Psyllium husk is a bulk-forming fiber. It acts like a gelatinous and hydroscopic sponge surrounding and removing unwanted foreign material, sand, toxins, and indigestible roughage which settle in the folds, bends and turns of the digestive tract. It is this gel-like property that makes psyllium husk so appealing to horse owners and veterinarians for avoiding colic in horses.
Through research, it has been determined that if psyllium husk is fed too frequently, the animal’s digestive system becomes accustomed to the product, and begins to absorb it into the system. Then the bacteria residing in the animal’s gut will begin to digest the psyllium product, reducing its efficacy as a carrier of foreign materials and toxins that can cause horse colic.
Research has shown that large quantities of psyllium husk, fed in the proper dosage and intervals, will achieve the desired result. It is this proper dosage and intervals that makes the difference between a equine colic protective measure and a futile effort.

Horse Colic is serious.
Your horse’s health is in your hands... Do You REALLY Know What To Do?
Statistics show that 1 in 10 horses die of colic, and that 1 in 7 die of digestive diseases. Take a pro-active approach to the health of your horse by feeding ColiClenz™ Plus as directed, every 10 weeks. No horse should have to be that "1" in 10.
The accumulation of sand, dirt and harmful bacteria in the horse’s gut presents the risk of becoming trapped, creating serious health problems including colic in horses.
“Clinical Trials of ColiClenz™ Plus pellets are ongoing at Murdoch University Veterinary Teaching Hospital. Preliminary results suggest that ColiClenz™ Plus accelerates the removal of sand, toxins and bacteria from the large colon of the horse.”
“The clinical trials are very promising for this product to provide a significant improvement to the overall health of horses. The owner has surrounded herself with professionals in the fields of nutrition, gastrointestinal disease, physiology, and practicing veterinarians in an attempt to get her product to the consumer.”
“[We had] a very positive experience with this psyllium product this past fall. A horse with diarrhea which was culture negative for Sal.Spp., negative for internal parasites, and unresponsive to conventional treatments. Supportive care in the form of IV fluids and electrolytes was used for several days with no improvement in the diarrhea. The horse was still interested in eating and drinking, so we started the psyllium treatment and followed the directions on the bag. No other treatment was administered during this time, and the horse showed steady improvement. At this time the horse is in training and doing well, with no sign of a recurrence of the diarrhea. Bottom line: we will use this product again, and certainly consider its use in other types of digestive upsets.”
I have raised cutting horses for years and have experienced the anguish of watching my favorite horse die of colic… I was happy with the colic-prevention aspect of the pellets but was totally surprised by the other benefits we gained from the product. Tell (my horse) was understandably stressed by the training and seemed agitated and nervous all of the time.
After feeding the 5-day regimen of the pellets, Tell was loping circles on a loose rein, something he had not been inclined to do before. After speaking with veterinarians who had described their theories that training can bring on stomach irritations similar to ulcers and stress-related acid production, I concluded that the cleansing ability of the pellets could, and did, in fact, remove the irritating buildup and allowed him to heal.
Another benefit of the product I noticed almost immediately was the decreased whole grain bypass. During and after the pellets, the amount of undigested grain kernels in the manure reduced considerably. Other changes were a glossier hair coat and smoother, healthier appearing coronet band growth. All this with no feed change other than the PHP Pellets for 5 days.
I’ve trained cutting horses for the public for 15 years. The majority of my horses are young horses, two-year olds, Futurity and Derby (three and four-year olds). Two years ago I was introduced to ColiClenz Plus from PHP Pellets. I began a consistent program of ColiClenz Plus on some of the two-year olds. The results I experienced were far better than I had expected. Those young horses developed much faster, with more growth, and trained easier with greater retention to what I was doing with them.
The three-year olds showed much more stamina, while their hair coat and general appearance was fantastic. ColiClenz Plus has enabled my entire group of horses to utilize feed more efficiently, which brings my feed costs down dramatically. It has also brought condition and hair coat up to where I wanted it to be. My horses no longer tend to have off days in training and on show days. All in all, ColiClenz Plus is the one ingredient in my training program that will not be omitted.
I have been using the ColiClenz for about a year now and am having great success with my own horses. I own about 30 horses and started her program of every 10 weeks for 5 days of doing and have seen a huge improvement with horses looking and feeling better.
The first thing that seemed to happen across the board with all of them was in their eyes. They looked brighter and clearer.
Then I noticed when I rode them their hind ends seemed to be stronger and cover the ground better. This did not happen with every one of them but about half. The other ones seemed to have this after a couple of cleanses later.
The chronic horses which have been navicular, diarrhea, and founder have slowly in the last year are improving in ease of movement, soundness and able to increase their individual work load. I believe with continued use they will continue to improve.
Attitudes are another area that seems to be improving with all the horses, more at ease temperament and able to cope with stress better. I do believe in this product helps better the horse as a whole.
