    Digestive Problems- Please Help!

    My mom has been having a serious problem with her two horses for the last month. She got a new ration of hay from her supplier, who she has used before, but now the horses have raging diarrhea. I do know that she has tried several different products and new hay to help, but nothing has cleared it up.
    My poor mom is literally at her wits end of how to fix this, and image how her poor horses feel! Any advice?

    Change in feed is not the only thing that can cause diarrhea in horses. Since the problem is severe it would be a good idea to have the vet out to do a normal fecal exam as well as a culture.

    Camomile, slippery Elm Bark powder and simple brewers yeast are fabulous for digestive upsets.

    Other suggestions

    Are there any specific suppliers (catalog or company) or brands that you know of or can recommend?
