Not all bacteria are bad. Friendly bacteria in your horse’s hindgut (The Good Guys) assist in the fermentation of fibre and the synthesis of protein and a host of B vitamins. Millions of friendly bacteria die naturally and are lost from your horse’s digestive tract every day. Replenishing these friendly bacteria is vital to supporting your horse’s normal digestion and immune function, helping your horse maintain weight and condition, along with health and vitality. Live yeast is scientifically proven to maintain this healthy balance of friendly bacteria.
Although clinical signs of gastric ulcers in horses are subtle, the condition is quite common with some estimates suggesting nearly 50% of foals, and one out of every three stabled horses, may suffer from the condition. In addition, it is estimated that between 90% – 100% of racehorses and up to 60% of show horses suffer from ulcers.
Results from the UK’s National Equine Health Survey 2015 (published in the May edition of The Veterinary Nurse) have yielded some interesting information on lameness. The survey, which is co-ordinated by Blue Cross and has been running for five years, is already making significant inroads into our understanding of horse health.
