This unique combination of pre and probiotics is designed to support the natural microbial repopulation of the gut. Contains live yeasts which are proven to support the health of the horse's gut. The prebiotic ingredients are fructo-oligosaccharides, which support the growth of micro-organisms in a natural, sustainable form within the digestive tract, thus allowing beneficial bacteria to proliferate over harmful bacteria. Furthermore, fructo-oligosaccharides are non digestible by enzymes and therefore reach the hind-gut safely. The probiotic ingredients are present as encapsulated live yeast cultures. These are bile resistant and therefore have the ability to pass unharmed through the stomach to reach the large intestine. Here, they work in synergy with the prebiotic ingredients to support healthy, natural and normal digestive function. Biotics is an ideal formula for hard working competition and performance horses, horses recovering from antibiotic therapy and young foals prone to diarrhoea, all of whom can be susceptible to microbial upset and consequently digestive imbalance.
Feed Biotics as a short course when evidence of gut imbalance is seen, or follow antibiotic therapy. May also be fed for maintenance where necessary.
