I'm thinking that maybe Cinny is acting out lately because he is having some stomach upset from the stress of trailering, the show, etc or maybe he is having some digestive issues in general. I have ordered SmartGut from smart pack but it won't be here in a week. I was thinking of maybe using something like ProBios until it got here to see if it does get him acting a bit less irritable.
Don't worry, if I do notice a significant difference in Cinny after giving him something to ease his digestive tract, I WILL be calling in a vet to check out what is going on with him as I know that a change in behavior with this stuff is a sign of ulcer or other issue that should be treated by a vet.
Please let me know your thoughts, etc. Will it hurt Cin to use ProBios too much? Should I just wait for the SmartGut to arrive? Or if you think I should be getting him something else, let me know.
Right now he eats 3 flakes twice a day of prairie grass (he won't eat straight brome), and a scoop each meal of Strategy Healthy Edge. And peppermints...he loves his peppermints. I let him graze about half an hour to an hour when I visit him as well.
Thanks for any insight you may have.
