Could My Horse Benefit From Coopers Gut Products?

Nowdays horses are subjected to a number of lifestyle challenges which can negatively affect the balance of healthy bacteria.  These include:

  • Stress
  • Limited turnout
  • Strenuous exercise
  • Transport
  • Management changes
  • Low forage diet
  • High cereal/concentrate diet
  • Feeding and diet changes
  • Antibiotic therapy
  • Weaning

If any of these factors apply to your horse, either in the short or long term, then they may benefit from a product within the Coopers Gut range to help to maintain the healthy balance of bacteria within the hindgut.

    Look out for the following signs which could indicate your horse may have an imbalance of hindgut microflora:

    • Diarrhoea
    • Behavioural change
    • Weight loss
    • Poor performance
    • Colic

    Dysbiosis factors are not the only reason a horse could benefit from a Coopers Gut range product.  Other reasons to supplement are:

     

    • To help establish healthy gut flora in a newborn foal
    • To help support and maintain an ideal body condition during periods of high energy demands such as in-foal mares, youngsters and competition horses
    • For horses finding it difficult to maintain body condition
    • To help maintain normal gut function during periods of digestive disturbance
