horse at fenceGiving a horse a pill can be a challenge. There isn’t a horse alive who can’t sniff out supplements and medication when it’s placed in their grain, so if sticking your hand in the mouth of a thousand-pound animal doesn’t sound appealing, we have a solution you and your horse will love...

It’s called Pill Paste for Equines. This mint-flavored Pill Paste turns any supplement into a tasty treat. Like the other Pill  Paste products for dogs and cats,  it’s  highly  palatable, covers  any  size  pill,  and  is easy to pinch and mold to wrap  pills  - with  no  stickiness  and  no  mess. It's also very cost-effective with over 50 servings in one resealable pouch!

This all-natural paste contains things that horses love, like dried carrots and cranberries, molasses, mint and rosemary extract. It's a wonderful treat your horse will love and it makes giving your horse a pill a breeze.

Why Mint-flavored?

Mint is something that all horses seek out in the wild for it’s soothing digestive qualities. Mint (peppermint and spearmint) is a plant that most horses actively seek out in the wild. In most cases, mint acts a natural stomach calmant for horses and wild peppermint and spearmint is actively sought out by wild horses.

It also acts as a nasal clearing aid that helps clear out passages and keep stallions on their toes (hooves) by leading to a heightened sense of smell. It’s so effective, in fact, that mint was once thought to cause impotence in stallions - after eating peppermint, they wouldn’t sniff after the mares until the effects of the mint wore off.

Now Earth’s Balance has packaged that favorite herb of horses and turned it into a paste that any horse will love. Simply wrap the medicine or supplements in a mint-flavored Pill Paste to turn it into a tasty treat. Just a pinch of Pill Paste will ensure your horses never know they are taking their medicine. 

Pill  Paste  doesn’t  crumble,  won’t  dry  out,  doesn’t  stick  to your fingers,  and  covers  any  size  pill. It’s a no-muss, no-fuss way to give your horse his medicine.
