Because a horse produces less natural amylase (starch digestive enzyme) than other animals, (i.e. 10% of what hogs produce) the chances are greater for undigested starch reaching the cecum and colon. ForegutThe cecum and colon are the areas where feed is digested by other organisms rather than by acid and enzymes. Mostly, the populations of these organisms prefer hay and other forages, not grain. As a result, elevated levels of grain starch force a shift in their population and in the process, acid levels rise and start to cause problems such as colic, laminitis and ulcers.

EquiPride® as a digestive aid consists largely of externally processed ingredients that have been pre-digested for the horse and supports the nutrient utilization of the horse’s entire ration, as well as adding key nutrients.

ProBiotein ProBiotein® is the SweetPro Feeds proprietary “blend additive” in EquiPride which constitutes the digestive aid. We stress the blend aspect of ProBiotein since digestion is a complex process that is influenced by many factors and combinations of factors. No single “silver bullet” ingredient is
going to get the job done.

Digestive aid, Vitamin and Mineral Supplement for Horses

HindgutHorses are hind-gut, foraging herbivores with a comparatively small stomach. A horse left to it’s natural foraging patterns will graze on high fiber grasses and hay many hours of the day allowing its small stomach to balance acid and enzyme digestion with the fermentation digestion
of the cecum and colon (hind gut).

Because so many horses are boarded in stalls and non-pasture confines, they are fed in shorter time periods and with more concentrated energy feeds such as grain that is high in starch.

This is where SweetPro's EquiPride is helpful in aiding the digestion of the typical stable diet.
