What to Expect When Using Total GI Horse Supplements
What are total GI supplements?
Total GI supplements are daily formulas that support a horse’s entire gastrointestinal tract. These supplements include ingredients for both stomach and hindgut health, and may include magnesium and calcium for gastric support, along with probiotics and enzymes as a digestive aid.
Why it’s a smart choice
Your horse’s gastrointestinal (GI) tract is a delicate and complex system made up of a variety of structures such as the stomach, small intestine, and large intestine. The GI tract has a number of critical roles to play including breaking down food, absorbing nutrients, and housing a large portion of your horse’s immune system. That’s why it’s smart to provide support for the entire digestive tract, which is a crucial part of powering your horse’s overall health and well-being.
What to expect with total GI supplements
While you obviously can’t see your horse’s GI system working normally from the outside, you can rest assured that the ingredients in a total GI supplement are supporting your horse on the inside. Because the GI tract is a complex system, remember that these types of supplements may take time, generally 6-8 weeks. After your horse has been on the supplement, look for signs that may be associated with stomach health such as a relaxed demeanor during mealtimes and a willing attitude during work. For hindgut health, your horse should start passing normal, healthy manure.
How to support success
Keeping a total GI supplement in your horse’s SmartPaks is a smart way to help ensure that his entire digestive system stays on track. Of course managing GI health doesn’t end here. Being familiar with the risk factors and signs of gastric upset and colic can help you make smart choices for your horse’s digestive health.
