All probiotics are not created equal!
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!
