What does probiotics do for a horse?
Probiotics are one of the supplements for horses and work well for your horse’s intestinal system. Your horse needs certain bacteria that convert indigestible fibers and carbohydrates into nutrients in the large intestine. This must be done because the body cannot digest these substances on its own. It is important to keep these bacteria healthy.
The effect of probiotics in horses
Often the body tries to keep its intestines healthy on its own. But in some older or sick horses it is possible that the balance between good and bad bacteria is disturbed. As a result, fibers from the feed of horses are digested less well. Probiotics are bacteria or yeast that restore balance in the colon.
The difference between prebiotics and probiotics for horses
Probiotics are bacteria that keep the intestinal flora in balance. However, these bacteria do need nutrition to continue working properly. That’s where prebiotics come in. Prebiotics are a source of nutrition for the good bacteria in the intestinal tract to stimulate growth and activity.
How many probiotics can I give my horse?
The amount of probiotics you can feed a horse per day depends on the weight of the horse and the concentration of the supplement. The product information contains a description of the correct dose of probiotics for your horse for each supplement.
