“We at Rivercrest Park will be using Kelato GastroAID Everyday at the beginning of our weaning process and for any further sale preparations, both weanling and yearling.”
Rivercrest Park Stud has been using Kelato’s GastroAID Everyday for several months now and found that it can be used as a tool in maintaining a good digestive system in all ages of the Thoroughbred.
Owner Steve Hoare says, “We first started using GastroAID Everyday on our Thoroughbred weanlings in readiness for the Perth winter sales in June 2019. Although we had some very laid-back babies, there were a few that showed tendencies to be a bit nervous and up tight. Supplementing with GastroAID Everyday, we maintained very good weight gain and workload during the sale preparation without the loss of appetite.
Generally, nervy types do lose the will to eat, which makes it very difficult to prepare for sales or, later in life, as a racehorse. All in all, the weanlings coped extremely well with the whole process, including transporting for 3 hours to the sale complex.
We at Rivercrest Park will be using Kelato GastroAID Everyday at the beginning of our weaning process and for any further sale preparations, both weanling and yearling.
We have also started giving our stallions (pictured below) GastroAID Everyday in readiness for the upcoming busy breeding season. l believe it will help with the overall health of the stallions, especially our new boy Ducimus, who will start his new career as a stallion in the next few weeks. Serving mares for the first time can be very stressful both physically and mentally which could lead to the development of gastric ulcers. By using GastroAID Everyday, we can stop this from becoming a massive problem before it even gets started.
I do believe that by using Kelato GastroAID Everyday we will have better, healthier horses.”
GastroAID Everyday is formulated to maintain the health and function of the total digestive tract. 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 an unhealthy horse.
GastroAID Everyday provides your horse with daily support by:
- Maintaining total gut function
- Enhancing total gut health
- Optimising fibre digestion
GastroAID Everyday provides your horse with the daily support it needs to maintain good gut health. Your horse will show improvements in areas such as a healthier appetite, improved body condition, coat quality, behaviour, manure quality and overall well-being.
