Does Your Horse Have Leaky Gut Syndrome?

|

If your horse has been acting off, it could be Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS). LGS happens when your horse’s gastrointestinal tract is compromised, allowing harmful substances to “leak” into the blood stream. These leaks can result in:

• Changes in personality/behavior
• Reduced performance
• Weight loss
• Loose manure/diarrhea
• Chronic/recurrent colic
• Girthy when saddled 

Stressors such as pathogens or disease can upset the microbial balance in the gut. However, even common stressors like diet changes, training, travel and heat can damage the gut lining.

Ensuring your horse has clean water, feeding quality forages and evaluating management practices can help prevent LGS. Nutritional solutions are also important. That’s why we’ve upgraded our EquiMix package, found in all Triple Crown feeds, to include the following:

Butyric and Zinc

These nutrients are vital for gut health and can help horses avoid Leaky Gut Syndrome. They combine to strengthen the tight junctions in the gut lining, provide energy to cells that make up this lining and help heal wounds. ButiPEARL Z EQ  ensures that these nutrients are released throughout the upper and lower gut of your horse.

Solutions Beyond Compare

Almost every horse experiences stressors and a feed program that anticipates these challenges will help keep your horse healthy. Prevention is always better than treatment, and feeding Triple Crown can help. StressFree Forage is an alfalfa-based supplement that uses a nutrient-based approach to support normal digestive health. StressFree Forage and all Triple Crown horse feeds offer the benefits of ButiPEARL Z EQ.
