Probiotic EQ (Pellets)

$43.45


"I have a 27 year old gelding named ’’Duke ’’ that developed what I would have at first called ’’ seasonal’’ diarrhea a few years ago. This horse started having watery stool followed by a fairly normal looking pile of manure, then more watery stool. Over the last few years it became less and less seasonal and turned in to year round. He has been seen by a vet, regularly dewormed, power-packed, and given courses of antibiotics until I decided enough was enough. All of that seemed to help a little at first, but he would soon return to having a watery mess under his tail and all over his back legs. My vet had me start him on a probiotic that he carried, and I saw no difference. I kept giving it to him over the last few years hopeful that it might help. He has no chewing surface left, and I was satisfied that his diet was not the problem, so I had honestly resigned myself to the fact that this was how his life was going to be. In January of 2020 I was rinsing his tail and back legs in 30 degree weather so my husband could trim his feet, and I decided I had to try something else. So I contacted Tina at MVP. We discussed everything and at her recommendation I started Duke on Probiotic EQ the last week of January. I was skeptical. He had been on another probiotic for years, but I trust my friends at MVP 100%. Within a week I ’’ thought’’ I noticed a difference. By mid February he no longer had a nasty tail and messy legs. He is the only horse in his pasture, and if that was not the case I would have sworn the piles of manure I was finding did not belong to him. We are nearing the start of summer now, and Duke has the most formed, normal looking manure that he has had in YEARS! I was always satisfied with his weight, but I think since starting Probiotic EQ he has even filled out a little more. No more having to wash his legs and tail before we trim his back feet either. Probiotic EQ has literally changed his life, and he will continue to be on it for hopefully many more years.

Thank you MVP for all that you do!

 Probiotic EQ™ contains concentrated levels of four (4) key ingredients to provide the support for healthy gut/digestive integrity and immune support. 

 

  • Active Dry Yeast (saccharomyces cerevisiae) -- A yeast shown to help decrease pathogens and help control diarrhea and a source of Beta-Glucans 

 

  • Direct-Fed Microbials —Live, naturally-occurring microorganisms that improve gut integrity, digestion, growth and production to reduce intestinal problems.

 

  • Beta-glucans — Are found in cell walls of bacteria and yeast help support immune system by stimulating production of white blood cells and other immune cells to attack pathogens as well as stimulating cells that destroy invading pathogens.  Feeds good bacteria and provides a “protective” layer in the intestinal walls.

 

  • D-Mannose (MOS) — Helps stimulate the growth of good bacteria and thought to be a pre-biotic.  It has antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal properties.  Supports easier digestion of fibrous feeds.

#INGREDIENT GLOSSARY

Beta Glucan is a powerful stimulant to the immune system. By normalizing the rate at which food moves through the GI tract, Beta glucan also helps to moderate the release of sugar into the bloodstream and reduces the digestive upset that can occur when too much sugar reaches the hindgut too quickly.

D-Mannose (MOS) is part of the yeast cell wall and helps clear the horse’s hindgut of pathogens and aids in immune system health. MOS binds to harmful pathogens like E.coli and salmonella, preventing these from binding to the horse’s intestine and causing infection. When the MOS is flushed from the horse’s body in manure, it takes the infective agents with it. MOS also stimulates the horse’s immune system by evoking an antibody response against the invading pathogen, building the horse’s natural defenses. Mannose is a prebiotic, complex sugar that aids in tissue remodeling and feeds lactobacillus (good) bacteria that provide a protective shield for the mucosal membranes of the gut.

Active Dry Yeast: A yeast shown to help decrease pathogens and help control diarrhea and is a source of beta glucans. Supports enzyme activity for fiber digestion/colon function associated with colic, colon pH and helps support growth of beneficial lactic acid bacteria.

Probiotics are live microorganisms fed to promote healthy digestive and immune function. When these "good" bugs break down food ingredients that the body normally can't, they produce energy and vitamins for the body, food for cells in the cecum and colon, and byproducts that keep the "bad" bugs from growing. Research suggests probiotics are useful in repopulating the intestine with "good" bugs after antibiotic use and may benefit certain horses with diarrhea. A common term used for probiotics is direct-fed microbials (DFM).

#FAQS

Can healthy horses benefit from digestive support?

MVP:  Healthy horses can benefit from digestive support especially those undergoing feed changes, horses on antibiotics, and particularly those under stressful training, heavy competitive schedules and trailering long distances.

Probiotic EQ (Pellets)

This is the second time I have ordered this product. It seems to help my horses cope with the extreme weather changes in my mid-western state. I also notice a better utilization of the (plenty of) hay and (very little) grain; the horses drink plenty of water, and are mentally more calm.
