Horses have evolved as trickle feeders, designed to be eating roughage/fibre for a large portion of their day. Digestion of this fibre occurs through fermentation by healthy bacteria within the hindgut and this process provides the horse with an essential source of slow release energy.
In addition to the digestion of fibre, the healthy bacteria help to keep those bad bacteria at bay, keeping the microbial balance in equilibrium. An imbalance in gut flora caused by too few healthy bacteria and an overgrowth of bad bacteria is known as dysbiosis.
Dysbiosis can cause inflammation and hindgut disturbances, leading to potential clinical problems such as colonic ulceration, diarrhoea, poor body condition, poor performance or behavioural issues.
Unfortunately, there are a number of modern feeding and management practices which can cause dysbiosis and may affect your horse either in the short term or can be on-going. These practices include:
" Limited Turnout/stabling
" Strenuous exercise/training
" Management changes which can trigger stress
" Low forage diet
" High cereal diet
" Feeding and diet changes
" Antibiotic therapy
As many of these practices can't be avoided most owners are constantly looking for ways to support their horse's gut function to try and keep their horse as healthy as possible.
MSD Animal Health has launched Coopers Gut, a whole new range of feed supplements to help do just that. The Coopers Gut range uses a mixture of prebiotics and postbiotics, with the aim of supporting the healthy gut flora and hindgut function keeping the horse healthy from the inside out.
