The horse´s hind gut is full of bacteria which aid the breakdown and digestion of fibre. Stress from training, competition, a change in management, yard or food, can have a negative effect on this, reducing the horse´s ability to digest and absorb food correctly.
Progest WT contains yeast products which aid the bacteria in the hind gut, optimising digestion and, therefore, increasing the nutrients gained from the food. Progest WT should also be given after any treatment with antibiotics as these will affect the population of hind gut bacteria.
Progest WT should be fed daily as a course in the situations stated above. However, pro-biotics are considered beneficial to any horse in a domestic situation. In these circumstances, V-Biotic® provides a balance of essential vitamins and minerals in combination with Progest WT, plus Echinacea and Turmeric for a more complete supplement
