Probiotics for Digestive Health
I am considering putting my new horse on probiotics, as his digestive health doesn't seem to be the greatest - his "piles" are often loose and runny. Has anyone used probiotics? How do you start out - do they have to be adjusted to it slowly?
My horse currently eats oats - I am still in the process of switching him over since his previous home. The feed I am considering switching him to is the Nutrena Safe Choice, which claims to have probiotics in it. Would it be bad (or unnecessary) to still put him on a probiotic supplement? What is the general opinion on Safe Choice?
I know I'm asking a lot of questions all at once here, LOL. So thanks in advance!
