Finally - A Nutritional Approach To Stop Wood Chewing!

Horse Care Press Release


PHOENIX, Ariz. – With the onset of winter, more horses will be spending most of their days stabled, often leading to time spent standing at the stable door, boredom and wood chewing. QUITT™, new from Farnam Horse Products, is scientifically formulated to eliminate a horse’s wood chewing habit.

Wood chewing by horses is a potential cause of health problems including excessive wear of the upper incisors, splinter damage to oral parts, and colic associated with the ingestion of wood fragments. Not to mention, wood chewing is destructive and carries with it an economic factor due to the damage to stalls, rails and fence posts.

Wood chewing is reported in young horses, in particular when their temporary incisors are being replaced, and is a well-known predisposition seen in approximately 30 percent of the U.S. adult horse population. Several known conditions that cause wood chewing include boredom, nervousness, seasonality, the feeding program, confined environments and lack of social interaction. However, there are strong indications that nutritional deficiencies and poor housing environmental conditions are among the top reasons for the development of the condition.

The powerful formula in QUITT combines essential vitamins, micro and macro minerals, and fatty acids all in a pH balanced alfalfa pellet. QUITT stops wood chewing by addressing underlying nutritional deficiencies, thus stopping this potentially harmful behavior. Research indicates that most horses will stop wood chewing within seven to 10 days after daily supplementation with QUITT. As a complement to this nutritional approach, it is recommended that damaged wood boards in the barn be replaced and the horse provided with regular exercise. QUITT contains natural ingredients at levels that will not interfere with an existing feeding regimen, and will not cause harm to the horse. For best results, feed QUITT pellets at the recommended daily serving. With a money-back guarantee and easy-to-feed application, say goodbye to chemical sprays, cayenne pepper remedies, collars and costly repairs.
