EXPERT TIPS

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.

I got this to help harden my horses poo as the rich grass had made it very liquidy. Horse really hated the taste to begin with. Initially requires a loading dose which I couldnt give her as she wouldn’t eat her feed. Have had to slowly increase the amount from a tiny pinch to a full scoop and so too soon to see any effect yet.

I bought the Nettex Gut balancer following a chat with the Nettex agent at hoys. My horse is a 6yr old 17.3h warm blood and has evented all season, he has recently become a little tetchy when washing off his tummy area and was putting his ears back when tightening his girth. I had already had the obvious ailments checked... teeth, back and saddle and this was really unusual behaviour for his laid back character. Within 3 days of using Nettex gut balancer he stopped all signs of tetchiness and was back to his usual happy self. I will definitely continue to use the product. It is easy to feed and platable (my horse is very fussy). My only observation is the scoop provided could be the right size for the recommended daily amount instead of having to feed 2.5 scoops.

I bought this for my ex race horse which cribs. When he arrived with me he was very poor condition. I changed his feed and cut out any treats (apples, carrots, mix etc) but he still wasn't gaining as much weight as i would have liked. I genuinely believed this has helped him gain weight and could see the difference after 2 weeks. Although this has helped i don't believe it is solely down to the supplement but i definitely believed it has helped and i will continue to feed it.
