Hind Gut acidosis

Lorraine Godfrey

Does this supplement address the hindgut acid too

  • Veterinary Advisor

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.
