Breathe Easy This Winter With Nedz!

We often experience changes in our own respiratory health during the transition from summer to winter, and our horses are no different. The switch in environment from the fresh outdoors to more confined stable time, brings with it some challenges for our equine counterparts, including dust, dampness and bacteria. To give your horse a healthier home during the winter, turn to Nedz!
Most horses are stabled overnight, meaning their bedding is a key factor in their environment, and, therefore, their wellbeing. One of the most common causes of respiratory problems is inadequate ventilation for stabled horses, leading to an increased risk of exposure to mould, spores and dust.
Conditions such as Recurrent Airway Disease can become a long-standing problem for horses, leading to a decline in health and overall performance. However, one of the best solutions to support good respiratory health this winter is to provide a fresh supply of clean, hygienic, low-dust bedding such as Nedz.
Both Nedz Original and Nedz Pro go through a rigorous dust extraction process, creating a non-toxic environment for your horse whilst he is stabled through autumn and winter. Nedz chopped straw has high levels of absorbency. It soaks up urine, which in turn reduces the levels of ammonia in the environment. The result is a cleaner, fresher and more hygienic stable.
All Nedz bedding features the organic Natural Nedz formula - a unique blend of Manuka, Cade Oil, Silver and Aloe Vera. Natural Nedz has anti-bacterial, antiseptic, anti-fungal, and anti-parasitic properties and helps improve hygiene by reducing the amount of bacteria and viruses harboured in bedding.
Nedz Original and Nedz Pro are priced between £6.50 - £8.50 per 20kg bale. For more information about Nedz visit the website or tel: 01254 677 762.

Supporting Eldery Equines

Although equine retirement might suggest long lazy days in the field, the care and support needed for our more experienced equines is still just as vital as when they were in their prime. Older horses need products that will support their health and provide comfort in their twilight years, making Nedz the perfect choice for senior stablemates.
In order to keep older horses in good health and give them the best chance of thriving in their golden years, their environment must be hygienic and comfortable. Insects can become a source of irritation and can lead to secondary health problems such as fly bites and sweet itch. However, both Nedz products feature Natural Nedz, which is anti-bacterial and helps deter bacteria and bugs.
Absorbency is another key to hygiene and foot health; an even more imperative factor if horses are barefoot. For those suffering from painful conditions such as laminitis, the stable should offer “springing support”, and help keep painful feet away from a hard and uncomfortable surface. Choosing Nedz, which is super absorbent and soaks up urine, will help keep harmful bacteria and ammonia away from hooves, as well as causing less irritation to delicate sinuses and the respiratory system.
A safe stable for a senior horse features bedding which does not slip - especially when used on a concrete floor - and should provide a deep base to ensure horses are always protected, especially important if they spend time lying down. Nedz Pro is designed to be deep littered, and creates a soft yet sturdy base that hardly moves once it is in place. This is the perfect grounding for an older equine requiring secure footing.
Having been through a rigorous dust extraction process, Nedz products are ideal for use when immunity and the respiratory system is compromised – particularly common in older horses. Virtually dust free, and with Silver, Aloe Vera, Manuka and Cade Oil forming part of the Natural Nedz treatment – your older horses can breathe easy in a Nedz stable.
Nedz Original and Nedz Pro are available in 20kg bales and cost £6.50 - £8.50 each. For more information about Nedz visit or tel: 01254 677 762.
