In the middle of the summer of 2006, HorseTech started to receive requests from their clients for a pelleted source of garlic and vinegar. They gave the idea some thought and started to search for ingredients that would allow them to make a garlic & vinegar product that was easy to use.
HorseTech noticed that some of the products in this category were very dusty and difficult to use. Another was sort of a moist, paste-like mixture--again, no fun at all to use. It was their opinion that there wasn't really a superior product offering in this category. So, they went ahead and made one for you! HorseTech named this product Buggzo!
Buggzo is a pelleted product that's truly easy-to-use. You won't experience any sorting, sifting or even sneezing (you or your horse) that you might with the fine, powdery products. Nor will you need to wear gloves like you might with some of the messy, moist/sticky products. Your horse will accept it, or we'll gladly refund your full purchase price.
HorseTech combined two types of garlic and a unique dry, pH buffered apple cider vinegar, thiamine, diatomaceous earth, brewers yeast, B-complex vitamins and more in this easy-to-feed pellet.
I think you'll love our Buggzo pellets as much as you do many of our other great products. In fact, I think it will be a product that you'll want to tell your friends about! We sure hope so! Give Buggzo a try!
DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Initial Introduction: Provide to mature horses weighing approximately 1,100 lbs. (500 kg) at the rate of one (1) to two (2) ounces daily. Reduce daily serving proportionately, based on weight, for lighter breeds & ponies. Continue for a period of 2-4 weeks.
Maintenance: The standard maintenance dose for an approximately 1,100 lb (500 kg) horse is a one ounce serving (28.4 grams or one level 48cc scoop). Larger breeds or a heavy insect population may require the use of an increased maintenance dose of up to two (2) ounces per day. Provide one half ounce to one ounce daily for ponies, smaller breeds, or where insect populations allow for lower usage rates.
The 48cc scoop provided with the product will hold approximately one ounce (28.4 grams) when filled to “level”.
You should see an improvement in your situation in about two weeks--or less!

LABELING, WARNINGS, CAUTIONS

JINI SAYS: Those of you with dogs or cats will probably already know that garlic repels fleas. No one knows for sure, but the theory is the fleas don't like the way the blood smells when the animal is eating garlic. And of course, you have to be careful to use the right amount and not give too much.
When I've used garlic with my dogs and cats, I found they were pretty good at knowing how much to ingest. However, offering straight garlic to my horses (powder sprinkled in their feed dish) was not too appealing. The only way I could get some of them to eat it was to mix it with a lot of molasses - and some still refused.
So if you've been looking at an easy and palatable way to get garlic, apple cider vinegar and diatomaceous earth (DE) into your horses for bug-bite control, these pellets are just the ticket!
