Support for Gastrointestinal Issues

Support for Gastrointestinal Issues

Horses have sensitive digestive systems, making it important for horse owners to be familiar with signs of digestive distress.

There are many factors that contribute to a horse's digestive health. Some indications of healthy digestion are how much or how little your horse is eating and drinking, whether they have a shiny coat or whether they seem relaxed. If you notice a change in your horse's droppings, or eating and drinking behaviours, please contact a vet to help diagnose the situation.

Here are a few products by the brand NutriLabs that ease symptoms and help prevent gastrointestinal issues:

Mineral supplements to relieve stomach acid:

Acid Protect® was developed specifically for horses with severe stomach acid problems. It helps the horse rebuild its stomach lining while protecting the walls of the stomach from further exposure. Acid Protect® is also suitable for foals.

Aka-Biotix is especially suitable for horses suffering from faecal water. It binds excessive amounts of liquid and sand deposits, supports intestinal flora and peristalsis, and cleanses the intestines. Psyllium encourages intestinal activity, while prebiotics, elecampane and fructo-oligosaccharides (multiple sugars) promote healthy intestinal flora. They serve as nutrients for certain bacteria and activate desirable bacteria, as well as reducing undesirable germs.

The Synbiotix powder with prebiotics and yeast helps intestinal flora grow and recover. The powder contains sugar compounds (fructo-oligosaccharides) that are not completely digested, remaining available to the desirable microorganisms in the intestine, promoting their growth. Together with yeast, they encourage the rapid growth of endogenous probiotic bacteria, preventing undesirable germs.

We're all familiar with how uncomfortable it is to experience gastrointestinal complaints. For this reason, we're happy to offer NutriLab's great selection of products that can help support your horse on its way back to health!
