Val-Kalm® is a readily-absorbed extract of valerian for horses (Valeriana officinalis) – a powerful calming herb that is useful for anxious or nervous horses, and for helping horses to cope with stressful periods.
Valerian for horses does not sedate your horse or cause them to become dull or unresponsive. It does not affect the horse’s ability to learn or perform. It is particularly useful for young horses undergoing their early education, and helps to settle horses during their first times travelling, being shod or having dental or veterinary work done. It is also useful for stressed horses and for older horses that find travelling stressful. Horses on box rest, particularly if they have trouble settling, and they are on rest due to a musculoskeletal injury, will benefit from the calming effects of Val-Kalm®
Val-Kalm® can be used on horses and ponies of all ages and can be safely used on horses that are already excited. It works fast, and results may be seen within 30 minutes (or up to an hour, depending on the individual horse).
Val-Kalm® 1:2 strength tincture is the strongest concentration on the equine market and is particularly useful for horses with poor digestion or who are fussy eaters. It gives your horse all the benefits of Valeriana officinalis in a concentrated form that is easily-absorbed into the bloodstream for speedy results.
Liquid extracts are more quickly absorbed and therefore, for the fastest acting calmative, a tincture is better than a powder.
