Gastro Coat

Gastro-Coat

Natural Supplement for Stomach Irritation and Gastric Health

Gastric irritation can make horses sensitive in the stomach, girthy, reluctant to go forward or a picky eater. 

Kohnke’s Own Gastro-Coat is a natural, helpful supplement for gastric issues, with multiple actions in the stomach and small intestine to help maintain digestive health and improve appetite.

Gastric ulcers (EGUS) are a problem in 60-90% of horses in training and competition.  Many vets prescribe omeprazole-based drugs when horses show symptoms of EGUS.  Gastro-Coat is highly complementary to EGUS medications with different but synergistic actions.  Gastro-Coat is also much more economical and can be used long-term without ill-effects.

Gastro-Coat’s natural ingredients are beneficial to all horses!

Which Horses Benefit?
  • Horses suffering from gastric irritation or stomach acid build-up
  • All horses to improve salivation, stomach acid balance and chewing efficiency.
  • Before travelling and during the journey on long-distance trips.
  • Horses training and competing in racing and equestrian sports to shield the stomach lining against acid ‘splash’.
  • Horses predisposed to stomach lining irritation, girthiness, reluctance to go forward, especially in canter, horses which are ‘sensitive to the leg’ when ridden.
  • Can be used long term without negative effects in horses with gastric sensitivity, such as horses competing or racing regularly.
Major Ingredients

Gastro-Coat contains natural compounds which are present in the diet of horses, but are destroyed by heat processing commonly used to make commercial prepared feed mixes.  These natural compounds may be low or inadequate in the modern diet of horses in training, racing or competition.

  • Natural mucilage compounds and phospholipids
  • Synergistic ingredients including yeast extracts
  • Does not contain soy, wheat products or fillers
  • Sticky powder with a palatable vanilla milk flavour
Supplementation Guidelines

Each level scoopful of Gastro-Coat provides 40 grams. 

In the Feed: For picky or reluctant eaters, 80 grams of Gastro-Coat can be mixed into the regular feed to help improve appetite and support the health of the gastro-intestinal system. 

In a Small Feed (most popular): Give 80 grams of Gastro-Coat in a small feed of preferably lucerne chaff 30 minutes before training, travelling or competition for girthy, sensitive or unwilling horses. 

As an oil paste: Gastro-Coat can be given as an oil paste 5 -10 minutes before training or travelling for fussy horses or those reluctant to eat before or after working. Make the paste with 80 grams of Gastro-Coat and roughly 80 mls of vegetable oil or Kohnke’s Own Energy Gold oil for extra benefits.  It is recommended to paste Gastro-Coat with oil rather than water as the compounds in Gastro-Coat become activated with water (as similar to saliva) and become sticky in the oral syringe.

Testimonial for Gastro-Coat
“My thoroughbred gelding Frank had become cranky and girthy and felt like he was uncomfortable when ridden. After talking with the team at Kohnke’s Own, I started Frank on Gastro-Coat and within a few short weeks he has improved considerably, he is no longer girthy and is much happier to be handled and ridden.”

Testimonial for Gastro-Coat
“When I first rescued Bentley he was in poor condition, you could clearly see all of his ribs. I found it hard to put weight on him, then I tried Kohnke’s Gastro-Coat. After two weeks of Gastro-Coat Bentleys condition started to improve and now he is looking better than ever. I have recommended this product to so many other equestrians out there because you can really see the difference it makes!” Priya W,  WA

Testimonial for Gastro-Coat
I just wanted to say that Gastro-Coat has completely changed my pony! In 12 months of trying all different feeds, calming stuff, taking her out much as possible… she would still get super stressed and have the runs soon as loaded onto a float and would continue to have runny manure, to the point of water the entire weekend if at a competition. Meaning several tail bag changes and soaking her tail and false tail over and over!

I put her on Gastro-Coat 2.5 weeks ago and within a week we no longer had the same pony! She travelled from Cranbourne to Bendigo last weekend (her longest trip yet) and did not poo once! Her manure was well formed and looked healthy all weekend. She was happy calm and continued to eat and drink as normal!

I cannot recommend this product enough!” Brittany J. VIC
