Expert Advice:

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.
