Gut ailments kill more horses than any other single issue. If
the horse’s gut is not healthy, his or her quality of life and
capacity to perform is at stake.
Optimum gut health must be in place for the horse to look good,
feel good and do good. A compromised gut is an invitation to every
kind of pathogen--Colic, Laminitis and Founder can arise when gut
issues go undetected and untreated.
Gut ailments can be hard to assess and they can turn dangerous in a matter of hours. Ulcers, for example, can develop in five hours.
In a perfect world, the horse has an abundance of beneficial bacteria or friendly flora in his or her gut to make digestion efficient.
In the real world however, there are many demands on and threats to the horse’s sensitive digestive system. Gut compromises come most especially from:
“The horse is extremely dependent on the micro-organisms in its feed to completely digest and extract nutrients.” Amy Gill, PhD, Equine Nutritionist
stresses can lead to dysbiosis, a dangerous bacterial imbalance
that results in the overgrowth of bad bacteria, molds, fungi or

Lack of grazing means that most of the half gallon of hydrochloric acid released into the horse’s stomach every 24 hours has nothing to do but eat through the stomach and fore-gut linings since the stomach is mostly empty.
Drugs kill beneficial bacteria which produces a high acid condition in the hind-gut, acidosis–this is the set-up for Laminitis and Founder.
Dysbiosis can factor in poor appetite, weight loss, poor muscle tone, colic, depression, arthritis and low immunity.
