Health Benefits of Slow Feeding Hay nets;

The digestive system in horses is designed around constant grazing. With long periods between each meal the digestive system can be distrupted, it increases the risk of Gastric Ulcers. 

Slowing down the rate of digestion of your horse by using a slow feed hay net may assist with restricting rations and treating Laminitis, Founder or Insulin Resistance

Using a slow feed hay net may reduce the chance of your horse suffering from Choke. As each mouthful is smaller.

If your equine is on restricted rations due to the complications of laminitis, founder or insulin resistance then slow feeding can help by making each feed last much longer. This reduces boredom, keeps him happier and reduces the chance of gastric ulcers.

All equines have digestive systems that are designed to have a constant flow of roughage. With long periods between each meal, there is no chewing, so less saliva to neutralise the acid. Gastric ulcers are formed when digestive acids come into regular contact with unprotected areas of the stomach. With the use of a slow feeding hay net you reduce the chance of your equine suffering from gastric ulcers.

Equines prone to choke (esophageal obstruction) will benefit from slow feeding because each mouthful is smaller which reduces the chance of a choke episode.
