Description

EquiShure is an encapsulated form of sodium bicarbonate which is designed to directly target the hindgut of the horse. This hindgut supplement is suitable for horses showing signs of altered digestive function and those which have been diagnosed with hindgut acidosis.

When horses are fed high starch rations or may consume high quantities of sugar from rich grazing, the pH of the hindgut decreases, and fibre digesting bacteria are inhibited. This decrease in pH creates an unfavourable environment for the microorganisms in the hindgut which in turn impacts on digestive and hindgut function. The unique time release mechanism has been shown to support stable hindgut pH through a targeted release of sodium bicarbonate directly into the hindgut.

Horses that are on high starch diets or those that are sensitive to high sugar levels i.e. in lush grazing, have an increased risk of hindgut disturbance and development of hindgut acidosis. A sign of impaired hindgut function can be loss of appetite or development of ‘fussiness’ towards feed. In these cases, supplementing the diet with EquiShure can help to stabilise hindgut pH and support digestive function.

Research has shown that supplementing the diet with EquiShure led to reduced faecal pH levels demonstrating that EquiShure can maintain gut balance and support a normal hindgut environment. Signs of abnormal hindgut function can include loss of appetite, change in droppings or digestive function, changes to normal behaviour, poor weight maintenance, poor coat appearance and development or expression of stereotypical behaviours, such as wood chewing.
