A Dietary Supplement for the Gastro-Intestinal Tract of Horses
Gastro-Coat® contains natural mucilage compounds that assist saliva in maintaining normal physiological and optimum digestive conditions within the stomach and upper small intestine of horses.
These compounds are inherently low in feed mixes containing grains and protein meals in ready-mixed and stable-mixed feeds fed to horses in training. Heat processing of grains further damages the natural mucilages which help to maintain optimum conditions for digestion. When supplemented in the feed, natural mucilages may help the action of chewing and salivation to maintain normal gastric and upper intestinal function.
- Contains natural mucilage compounds to help the action of chewing and salivation to maintain normal gastric and upper intestinal function.
- Helps maintain the appetite in hard working and travelling horses.
- Palatable and well accepted by horses.
- Drug free – natural mucilage compounds – does not contravene rules of racing/competition – it is a feed supplement – not a drug based medication!

Kohnke's Own Gastrocoat is a Dietary Supplement of Natural Compounds for the Gastro-Intestinal Tract of Horses

Gastrocoat is Drug free – natural mucilage compounds – does not contravene rules of racing/competition – it is a feed supplement – not a drug based medication!
Gastrocoat provides a source of natural mucilage and sticky gum-like compounds which are low in grain and protein meal based diets. Natural mucilages are especially low in processed feeds where the heat of steam-rolling, micronisation and extrusion damages these compounds which assist chewing and saliva in its action to maintain normal digestive function as a horse exercises, travels or when waiting to race or compete.

John Kohnke's Handy Hint!
Many horses lose their appetite when worked on an empty stomach or when competed 3-4 hours after a pre-race/competition meal. Mixing Gastro-Coat into 5 litres of dry lucerne chaff, dampened with 50mL Energy-Gold oil to tempt a ‘fussy eater’ and feeding about 30 minutes prior to exercise or competition, prior to traveling or the return trip after racing or competition, will help to stimulate chewing and salivation to assist the normal function of the digestive system and help the appetite and general well-being.
