Default Mycotoxin Binders

Does anybody know of any mycotoxin binders available in Perth? I know Hygain does one but are there any other brands?

Maybe look online?

Over in NZ they use them all the time, so maybe buying from there would be an option?

Only one i can find online is the one from Greenpet in QLD. I can find a reference to a Nutriguard in a SA website but can't find anywhere its sold.

I have a horse that is having a whole gamut of problems at the moment and Mycotoxins are looking like a likely culprit (even if it is just one more thing to rule out!) Greenpet in QLD is looking likely to get an order tomorrow if i can't find a local supplier.

Ok, I have been told, not sure on the worthyness of it though, that tuff rock products can also work in a similar way to mycotoxin binders

I think there is one called Tox-defy, but I can't remember the brand

Maybe try ringing Gidge stockfeeders? they have a good range of stuff - think that's where I saw toxdefy?

What about buying from the NZ? They'd probably have a better range? Evilbay?

Googling, and found this page;

All About Feed - AllAbouts / Mycotoxins: Companies selling mycotoxin binders

Interesting reading on this site.

There's a lot of companies there, some don't provide much info so you'd have to contact them with questions, but there's a lot there.

That one Tox-Defy is on Greenpet, and it says it's yeast wall extract (huh?) and Vit E. I think i would prefer to then just feed yeast (Yea Sacc for eg) and a Vit E supplement. You'd have to find out what the yeast cell wall extract is though, as it may just be the most important part.

Ive now found a WA supplier of Tox Defy and will definately be giving it a go. At this stage anything is worth a try.

As much as i would like to just try just Yeast at this stage i am needing to go with something that has proven results even if they are just people say 'yep it worked for me!'

I'll give Gidge a call tomorrow thanks B&T

I was just wondering the difference between plain yeast, and yeast cell wall extract. Just intersted in what exactly the difference is, and how one extracts a cell wall, lol.

About the 'proven' bit, i've been doing a little digging, because reading a reply in another thread about mycotoxins, my horse has/had most of those symptoms, and i've come across a study that did research into the affect of these binders on the toxins, and they found there was no signifcant difference between feeds with and without the binders.

Here's the link;
http://irmm.jrc.ec.europa.eu/html/ac...R_23997_EN.pdf

Although, like you, i would be happy to try it, even if it's just to tick it off the list

if you decide to do this, can you please let me know how you go? I'd be most interested.
