Hygiene is paramount for horses in recovery

When your horse or pony suffers from an illness or has an operation it can be incredibly stressful. Advances in veterinary medicine have meant that in many instances our equines pull through an array of different health problems and go on to make a full recovery. However the aftercare of an unwell equine, whatever condition suffered, is absolutely key to their recovery to health; and with that, hygiene of the stable is paramount. 

After surgery, or when recovering from an illness such as a virus, your horse or pony may have a period of enforced box rest. For optimum recuperation, it is important that the stable environment is both clean and relaxing in order to promote effective recovery and in order to limit the risk of secondary infections.

Nedz bedding is ideal for the recovering equine as the natural product allows your stable to remain clean and fresh, both vital elements in the protection of your four-legged friend. Nedz Original and Nedz Pro offer a supportive and dust-free composition of chopped straw, which allows our equine patients to stand comfortably on a stable base that provides much needed support.

The absorbent, dust-extracted bedding provides your horse with an environment, which is low in ammonia and dust spores helping to protect respiratory health, vital when spending long periods of time in the stable.

Nedz Original and Nedz Pro both contain an exclusive Natural Nedz formula, containing Manuka and Cade Oil, which provides an extra organic benefit to the bedding, making it anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic. This essential inclusion protects the skin and minimises the risk of hygiene issues and the unique odour discourages insects and bugs allowing your horse to rest, relax and recover in peace his stable.

Nedz Original and Nedz Pro are available in 20kg bales, priced between £7 - £8.50. For more information about how Nedz can benefit your horse visit our website at www.nedz.co.uk or to find your nearest stockist tel: 01254 677 762.
