Survey on the effectiveness of equine calmers commonly used in the UK

Poster presented at the 8th European Health and Nutrition Conference in Antwerp, Belgium, March 2017

Equine calmers represent a large proportion of the equine supplement market. However, despite this, there are relatively few studies reporting the efficacy of these products and furthermore there is no structured information on the potential for adverse events (“side-effects”).

The purpose of this online survey was to collect information from horse owners who had used equine calmers on their perception of efficacy and any adverse events.
