Horse Health

Equipride and Equilix are “all-in-one” vitamin and mineral supplements for horses that support good health and performance.

EquiPride comes in 18.9 litre buckets and 22 kg bags as a loose top dressing that can be added to your horse’s regular feed. EquiLix comes as a 22 kg or 56 kg free choice lick block.

Both products work effectively to help support hooves, hair coat, joint lubricity, feed utilisation, circulation and resistance to colicing. ProBiotein

SweetPro Feeds has designed these supplements to maximise nutrient uptake from your horses’ feed, and
minimise the need for multiple supplements. Horses produce less amylase, the starch and sugar digestive enzyme, than most other animals do. Therefore, the chances are greater for undigested starch from grains and sugar from molasses reaching the hindgut. This is where trouble starts.
Omega 3 Flax Factor
Elevated levels of starch and sugar reaching the cecum, force a shift in the microbial population, lowering pH, and often allowing pathogenic microbes to gain a foothold.

Also, with greater acidity comes cell wall damage which can lead to digestive colic. EquiPride’s unique buffered blend of minerals and prebiotics help limit the chances of this happening. The ingredients have been externally processed (fermented) so they come pre-digested for the horse, thus supporting nutrient utilisation of the horse’s entire ration.

This excellent feed efficiency means less forage is used to get the same job done and little or no grain is needed except in the most strenuous of work loads. And it’s safe for metabolic and insulin resistant horses.

How It Works

How EquiPride and EquiLix® Works

Horses produce less amylase, the starch and sugar digestive enzyme, than most other animals do. Therefore, the chances are greater for undigested starch from grains and sugar from molasses reaching the hindgut.

This Is Where Trouble Starts
Elevated levels of starch and sugar reaching the cecum, force a shift in the microbial population, lowering pH, and often allowing pathogenic microbes to gain a foothold. Also, with greater acidity comes cell wall damage which can lead to digestive colic.

EquiPride’s unique buffered blend of enzymes and prebiotics help limit the chances of this happening.

The Horse

The Horse

Designed for foraging on small amounts of roughage throughout the day, the horse is a flight animal, and can run at a moment’s notice without being bogged down by big feed loads.

Unfortunately, most horse owners do not have the luxury of letting their horses out to graze on endless pastures. For the most part, horses are often fed large amounts of concentrate once or twice a day. This can greatly undermine a horse’s digestive process.

If there is not enough forage going through the serpentine small intestine, it can cause kinks and colic tie-ups. If too much unassimilated starch / sugar  enters the cecum (where the majority of the microbial digestion takes place), you get a population bloom of sugar-eating microbes. The microbes that are designed to eat the high-fiber forage, suffer. This creates imbalance, excess acid forms and begins to do damage, creating a toxic environment.

Horse Digestion

Horse Digestion

digestionThe yeast in ProBiotein, cultured on a media of wheat, oats, barley malt and flax, is rich in biotin and other nutrients to aid digestion. Oligosaccharides – often called “prebiotics” because they feed the beneficial probiotic bacteria – are a key part of the ProBiotein additive.

These prebiotics help maintain good digestive tract health. At the same time, the enzymes in EquiPride®  and EquiLix® – amylolytic, fibrolytic, proteolytic and phospholytic – offer support for your horse’s utilization of fiber, starch, protein, phytic acid and minerals.
