Horses with a healthy GI tract digest their feed more effectively so they absorb additional nutrients. They are less likely to suffer from digestive imbalances resulting in colic, diarrhea and ulcers.

Providing horses with ample opportunity to graze or offering free-choice hay is one of the best ways to keep their digestive tract healthy.

An unhealthy digestive tract can lead to subtle changes such as sour attitude, poor coat quality, and weight loss.

Certain horses are at greater risk for developing digestive imbalances that lead to colic, diarrhea and ulcers.
