15 Didn't agree with my horse
Verified Purchase

By on 22 January 2017

I bought this on the recommendation of the vet who said that it was the only supplement they would recommend as it had been shown to be effective by trial.
It contains a massive 20% sugar and the recommended 'dose' for my hire is 250g per day (that's 50g sugar)!!
After a couple of days I noticed that my horse had become more squitty and touchy round the girth and stile areas. Her bum was really messy and she was generally less happy. I just stopped using the product. I don't know whether the other ingredients would have been helpful but I think that the huge sugar content is what caused the problem.
I'm surprised that my vet recommended this (they are a very big research practice and hospital). I will be speaking to them about it.
On the bright side it is highly palatable (smells like apple strudel).

55 Equitop Pronutrin
Verified Purchase

By on 13 September 2015

Only product available that has the patented Apolecto trailed and shown to prevent ulcers or if ulcers already present then stops them getting worse. Helps to buffer the acid and strengthen the stomach wall membrane both fore and hind gut. It's expensive but that's because it works. Would be nice if had more for the money though :)

45 Good product to use instead of the at-the-moment unobtainable Antepsin
Verified Purchase

By on 14 October 2014

Does not work as well as Antepsin, but does help with ulcer pain. I suspect it only works in the foregut and not in the hindgut though as I still see some pain symptoms 40 days into feeding it.... But certainly better with it than without it....

Maintenance dose

Mandy Smith

My mare was originally given this by my vet as a follow on treatment for 1 month following her ulcer diagnosis and initial treatment with sucralfete and omiprezole. I have tried other uk er treatment s as a maintenance but she just will not eat them in-her feed. So I have decided to keep her on this as a maintenance dose. My question is how much should I give daily as a maintenance dose. She weighs approx 500kg

  • VioVet Staff

A gut supplement is a great idea to continue if your horse is prone to ulceration. A normal gut microflora and function is important to help prevent the issue.
I recommend following the standard feed rate, this is the maintenance rate too:

Standard feeding is 50g Equitop Pronutrin per 100kg bodyweight daily for
a minimum of 28 days. (Scoop included measures from 50g to 125g in 25g
increments). One container is sufficient for an average sized horse for
14 days. If you have questions regarding the suitability of use consult
your veterinarian.

I would also advise ensuring your horse has enough fibre/hay and potentially reduce the concentrate feed where possible. Large amounts of concentrate feed can lead to excess acid in the stomach. I recommend chatting to your vet before making any significant changes to the diet though.

Hind Gut acidosis

Lorraine Godfrey

Does this supplement address the hindgut acid too

  • VioVet Staff

Gastric ulcers occur due to prolonged exposure of the stomach lining to gastric juices. Pronutrin is very effective at supporting the protective layers of the stomach but you would need a different supplement such as Protexin Gut Balancer to address hindgut issues. There are billions of bacteria in the hind gut of horses which contribute to fermentation in the caecum and colon. An imbalance in these microbes can lead to acidosis in the hindgut. A gut balancer helps prevent this.
