To help maintain gut health and support proper digestion in horses, owners should consider using digestive health supplements for horses formulated exclusively for KAUFFMAN’S®.
KAUFFMAN’S® Equine Gold
Formulated with a beneficial blend of digestive enzymes and probiotics to support equine hindgut health, KAUFFMAN’S Equine Gold contains yeast cultures and dry, active yeast that among other beneficial results, eliminates oxygen molecules within the digestive tract. Too much oxygen can inhibit fiber fermentation that is key to maintaining proper digestion in the hindgut.
Digestive enzymes included in the formulation of KAUFFMAN’S Equine Gold for horse gut health supports digestion of beta-glucan, hemicellulose, complex carbohydrates and pectin usually found in equine feedstuffs.
Why Is Gut Health Important for Horses?
General horse health depends nearly 100 percent on proper functioning of the equine digestive tract. Horses have one of the most distinctive digestive tracts in the animal kingdom, thanks to their hindguts — where fermentation occurs. Teeming with billions of beneficial protozoa and bacteria responsible for breaking down and digesting fiber, the hindgut provides most of the nutrients horses need to remain active, strong and healthy.
Maintaining homeostasis in the digestive tract is important, especially if the horse is experiencing the following:
- Cannot access adequate grass and hay
- Has undigested starches entering their hindgut
- Experiences sudden dietary changes
- Is under prolonged physical or psychological stress
- Suffers from an infectious disease that reduces his appetite
Situations where helping maintain normal digestive health and digestion with Equine Gold can help.
- Difficulty maintaining a healthy weight
- Unusual muscle tightness down hamstrings and over the back
- Dull look to the eyes
- Poor coat and hoof quality
- Odd odor to manure
- Exhibition of abdominal muscle line
- May eat grain very slowly
- Irritable when groomed or handled
- Reactive to saddling and/or palpitation around the flank area
