DIRECTIONS OF USE
FOUNDERGUARD® should be administered at the full daily dose for at least 3 days prior to any dietary change that involves an increase in grain (starch) or pasture (sugar) intake.

Individual horses: 5g FOUNDERGUARD® per 100kg bodyweight once daily
Bulk feeding: 1kg FOUNDERGUARD® mixed into 250kg feed concentrate
Introduce the dose incrementally over 4 days starting at ¼-½ the daily dosage. Commencement at the full dosage may result in decreased feed intake during the first week of supplementation.
FOUNDERGUARD® can be fed alone or mixed with other feed ingredients to provide 5g FOUNDERGUARD®/100kg bodyweight per day (e.g. 25g/day for a horse weighing 500kg).
FOUNDERGUARD® can be fed once per day or in 2 equal feeds each of 2.5g/100kg bodyweight. The scoop provided contains approximately 25g when loosely filled. FOUNDERGUARD® can also be administered by inclusion in complete concentrate rations by thoroughly mixing 1kg FOUNDERGUARD® with each 250kg of feed.
