What are Pre and Probiotics?
A huge population of ‘friendly’ bacteria live in the horse’s hind gut. Their job is to ferment (digest) fibre so that the nutrients are released and can be absorbed by the gut and into the body. When a horse’s diet is changed these bugs have to adapt. Sudden dietary changes can upset the ‘good’ bugs and lead to an increase in the ‘bad’ bugs which can lead to digestive upsets and colic.
Probiotics are live ‘friendly’ bacteria that are given orally in a supplement. The most common equine probiotic is Saccharomyces Cerevisiae. They help boost the numbers of ‘friendly’ bacteria and re-balance the gut. Prebiotics are substances that are an energy source for the ‘friendly’ bacteria to promote their numbers and growth. Typical equine prebiotics include Diamond V, mannan & fructo oligosaccharides, Brewer’s yeast & psyllium. NETTEX Gut Balancer contains all of these pre and probiotics.
How can Pre and Probiotics help your horse?
Probiotics boost the numbers of ‘friendly’ bacteria within the horse’s gut and prebiotics provide an energy source to help these good bacteria multiply.
Horses are extremely sensitive to changes in diet and management. To avoid causing digestive disturbances any dietary changes should be made gradually, however this is not always possible. This is where pre and probiotics can be of real benefit to horses. Boosting the levels of ‘friendly’ bacteria within the gut will help keep even sensitive tummies settled.
