Founderguard Founderguard


Suitable for: Horses on high-grain diets, grazing lush pastures particularly during spring and autumn, young horses in preparation for sales, horses that have suffered laminitis previously, horses undergoing a change in diet, and horses with seedy toe, white line separation or poor quality hooves.

Founded in 1968 by a veterinarian by the name of Pierre-Richard Dick, Virbac is dedicated exclusively to animal health, formulating a range of veterinary pharmaceuticals, vaccines and a wide range of pet care products for horses, dogs and cats.

Founderguard has been scientifically developed for the prevention of grain-induced founder in horses. It has been shown that horses on high-grain diets are prone to build-up of lactic acid in their hindgut, leading to damage of the gut lining and laminitis. Founderguard is formulated in a fibrous pellet, which is delivered to the site of action in the hindgut and works to prevent lactic acidosis build up.

  • Supplement for the prevention of grain-induced laminitis
  • Prevents build-up of lactic acidosis in hindgut
  • Fibrous pellet to deliver straight to the site of action
  • Highly palatable, lucerne-basted pellet
  • Can be mixed in feed or given orally

Directions for use: Administer at the full daily dose for at least 3 days prior to any dietary change that involves an increase in grain or pasture (sugar) intake. Introduce the dose incrementally over 4 days starting at 1/4 - 1/2 the daily dosage. Commencement at the full dose may result in decreased feel intake during the first week if supplementation. The scoop provided contains approximately 25g when loosely filled.

For individual horses: 5g per 100kg bodyweight once daily.

Bulk feeding: 1kg mixed into 250kg feed concentrate.

Feeding Guidelines

These are broad guidelines only, designed to assist with feeding your pet based on their weight, age and activity level. Always check the feeding charts on your pet's food packaging in conjunction with these feeding guidelines. Required amounts may differ between individual pets, and adjustments may be required to maintain optimal body weight.

Once or twice daily feeding is recommended for adult dogs, unless otherwise specified by your veterinarian. Puppies and kittens require feeding more regularly, with the total portion divided into three or four meals throughout the day. Ensure fresh water is available at all times.
