Probioticsare live beneficial bacteria that help thedigestive system. In normal, healthy situations, the various bacteria in the
fermentation vat that is the horse are in an equalized state and exist inharmony. A horse's cecum, the pouch connected to the large intestine, contains beneficial microorganisms that process the food that is consumed. The horse usually receives a resupply of bacteria from its environment through grazing, and so called good and bad bacteria live in balance. Horses under stress, however, are at risk of having and upset balance to their bacteria and are at a greater risk for bacterial toxin related illnesses. This population for microorganisms should remain stable as long as the horse isn’t stressed, not given antibiotics, or does not face any changes in its routine.
Realistically, there will be times when situations involving stress or change cannot be avoided. If the good and bad bacteria do not remain in balance, the horse may have problems digesting their food or assimilating the nutrients properly. This
can result in weight problems, skin and hoof problems, or health problems such as diarrhea. If your horse is not feeling well, this can also affect their behavior and performance. Probiotics are marketed as either pastes or powders and are commonly given to young foals, horses being trailered or in competition, and horses in many other situations.
