Making Bio-Sponge® Paste from Powder

Many horses will consume Bio-Sponge® Powder with their feed or supplements. However, if needed, Bio-Sponge® Paste can easily be made from the powder to aid in ease of administration. This can be especially helpful for foals, picky eaters or horses that are not eating due to illness.

Step 1: Mix recommended dose of powdered supplement with liquid to achieve desired consistency (approximately a 50/50 ratio of powder to liquid). Water, applesauce, flax oil or molasses are commonly used.

Step 2: Start with syringe fully plunged, then draw mixture up syringe by pulling plunger out from barrel of syringe.

Step 3: Administer full dose to animal orally immediately.
