Big Head Pellets and Lick are suitable for all equines grazing on affected pastures or receiving pollard or bran-based diets.

Nutritional Secondary Hyperparathyroidism is commonly known as “Big Head” or “Bran Disease” and occurs when there is a calcium imbalance within the horse’s diet. Big Head condition can occur in horses when they are grazing tropical and sub-tropical grasses that contain high concentrations of oxalates, or who are fed high phosphorous containing diets such as high grain, pollard or bran.

Big Head Pellets and Lick are calcium supplements used to rectify the calcium to phosphorous ratio and overcome calcium deficiencies. They are also suitable for feeding to broodmares and young stock, to maximise the availability of calcium in their diets.

Daily Feeding Rates

If “Big Head” is suspected, consult a veterinary surgeon for treatment advice.
