Digestive Health

The way in which we keep and manage horses often means that they are unable to exhibit optimum foraging behaviour, and exposure to stressful situations such as intense training, travelling or even early weaning can also increase the risk to ulceration, especially when these factors are combined with a diet that is high in cereals.

So in this issue we ask leading nutritional experts if Equine Ulcer Syndrome is a man-made problem? What is acidosis? Why we should consider feeding a gut product and what we can do as horse owners to reduce EGUS and maintain our horses’ digestive health.
