Nettex Zeozorb Stable Sanitiser
It is well documented that ammonia has a direct effect upon horse health, especially if they are stabled for long periods of time. To combat this issue Nettex has launched Zeozorb – a highly effective stable sanitiser. This micro-porous mineral, in a small granular form, is a natural detoxifier that completely removes the smell of ammonia. Nettex Zeozorb can be used on all types of bedding, on stable and lorry floors and any other wet areas that may harbour the smell of ammonia caused by urine. Zeozorb is odourless, unlike other stable sanitisers that give off a strong disinfectant smell, which allows a more natural breathing environment for the horse.
