How Probiotics Work On Your Horse

When your horse releases salivary enzymes during the grinding of food – it will eventually end up in his stomach where billions of good microbes will begin to break it down. In the small intestine the nutrients that are soluble will get absorbed into the bloodstream – anything insoluble will combine with the undigested soluble to pass through the Cecum and eventually end up in the large intestine. Live microbes in the Cecum will break down the remaining food into usable energy. If that bacteria performing all of this isn’t strong and diverse, the process won’t be done properly which can end up causing bloat, colic, laminitis and increases food-allergies.
