My four-month-old foal has had diarrhea for several weeks. He receives oats, hay, and pasture each day. Can you help, please?
How can I reduce digestive disturbances in a Thoroughbred mare actively training and racing?
How quickly should I reintroduce grass to a horse that was pulled off pasture in the spring due to fructan levels?
Research at Michigan State University tested the hypothesis that loss of condition in horses with PPID might be related to changes in the small intestine that could prevent nutrients from being absorbed.
Research on digestion revealed that senior horses had reduced apparent digestion of protein, phosphorus, and fiber relative to younger horses when both groups were fed pelleted alfalfa (lucerne).
After a bout of colic, it’s important to avoid causing a recurrence by feeding a horse too soon after the episode or by offering the wrong type or amount of grain or forage.
At Kentucky Equine Research, studies were designed to measure the differences in glycemic response when horses were fed different diets at three different levels of intake.
I am taking my horses on vacation with me, and they're going to encounter a different grazing situation than what they're used to (lush pasture instead of their typical sparse grazing). What should I do to prevent colic or laminitis?
Sudden variations in diet disrupt the balance of microbes in the horse’s hindgut, and the result of this disruption can be acidosis, colic, or laminitis. Researchers evaluated the effect of yeast supplementation on the microbial balance in the hindguts of horses that had a sudden change in hay.
I suspect that my Thoroughbred gelding has hindgut ulcers. Will EquiShure help this?
