Because no one knows your horse like you do.
Whether you’re involved in show jumping, breeding, showing, racing, dressage, eventing or just ride for pleasure, your horse’s gut health plays an integral role in their overall performance and well-being.
Gut health is a hot topic and for good reason! Research shows that modern feeding practices and daily stresses significantly impact the health of the horse’s digestive tract, no matter what discipline you do.
Despite your best efforts to follow good feeding and management practices, your horse could be subject to a range of digestive problems such as equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS), hindgut acidosis, and more.
What are the warning signs?
How do I know if my horse has digestive health issues? The problem is, some horses may show no signs at all.
The clinical signs vary significantly between individuals, but some common signs are:
• Poor appetite
• Sudden change in behaviour
• Sensitivity when girthing up
• Loose manure
• Dull / rough coat
• Lack of energy
• Poor performance
• Cribbing / windsucking
• Weight loss
Factors that increase the risk of digestive conditions in horses:
• Periods of fasting
• Low forage / high grain diets
• Use of NSAIDs (e.g. bute)
Kelato has developed two Complete Gut Health Solutions to suit every horse’s needs. Formulated to ensure your horse’s total digestive system functions normally, they are suitable for everything from combating digestive conditions such as Equine Gastric Ulcer Syndrome to simply maintaining optimal gut health.
Kelato’s GastroAID Recovery and GastroAID Everyday help to maximize digestion, promote feed conversion efficiency and improve your horse’s general daily health and performance.
It’s now easier for you to find the best gut health solution for your horses individual needs, but that’s all we’ve changed!
GastroAID Recovery (formerly GastroAID Digestive) is Kelato’s ultimate supplement, targeting both foregut and hindgut health, aiding recovery from gastric ulcers and other common digestive conditions.
GastroAID Recovery is unique as it provides therapeutic levels of the “coating agents” pectin and lecithin, which form a barrier over the stomach wall to protect it from acid burn and strengthen the mucosal lining.
GastroAID Recovery is designed for horses with equine gastric ulcer syndrome (EGUS), horses recovering from EGUS, or those under a significant amount of stress. If your horse is prone to developing gastric ulcers, we recommend using GastroAID Recovery during stressful periods.
For everyday support and maintenance of good gut health.
GastroAID Everyday (formerly GastroHEALTH) is formulated to maintain the health and function of the total digestive tract. Its daily use acknowledges the importance of optimal digestive function for a healthier, happier horse.
GastroAID Everyday is particularly beneficial for hindgut health due to the unique, powerful prebiotic and two live yeast probiotics. Just like our digestive system, the horse’s gut contains ‘good’ and ‘bad’ bacteria.
The balance between these bacteria can be easily disrupted. If the presence of bad bacteria outweighs the good, it can negatively impact your horse’s well-being. An unhealthy gut means and unhappy horse.
