There are many factors that can effect the number microorganisms in the gut. Some are health-related such as antibiotic treatment, vaccination, and deworming, and some are stress-related, such as foaling and weaning, showing, and transportation. These factors often result in problems with assimilation of nutrients and proper digestion. This can result in skin and hoof problems, weight issues, and many other health problems, such as diarrhea.
Pastures used to contain many different types of plants and grasses that provided beneficial nutrients and bacteria for horses. Most of today's pastures contain only a few varieties of plants and grasses, so there is not enough naturally-occurring variety to provide the optimal amount of probiotics that are necessary to support your horse's digestive needs when his system needs extra help. Horses eat a lot of grass, which ferments in the gut and provides them with nutrients. The fermentation is dependent upon the microorganisms that live in the large intestine. Probiotics will help to keep your horse's digestion working at optimal levels by keeping the microorganisms flourishing and healthy. Many horse owners are realizing that by improving their horse's digestion, they are improving the horse's overall health, and also oftentimes, the amount of feed needed to maintain a healthy weight can be reduces.
