Best Probiotic

Which Probiotic do you use?

Money doesn't matter, I want to best results and I'm willing to pay for whatever works best.

So far people I talked to mentioned FastTrack and ProviableŽ- EQ but I'm looking for/at everyone's opinion. I want something that will really work.

My horse needs help gaining weight after being sick. He was also on two different antibiotics for some time while he was sick.
The vet has been out, and along with other things, she recommend a probiotic now, if I could afford it.
He is looking healthier and happier now but I think his body could use a little help getting back in the swing of things, his coat had gotten dull and he dropped a good amount of weight VERY quickly when he had gotten sick this month. So I don't think it could possibly hurt things.

I love this stuff.

Paste for immediate needs or powder for a daily feed.

I used ProBios for added support for my horse when I bought him and moved him to my barn and didn't have any problems with loose stools or anything. It's hard to say if he would have had problems without it or not, though.

I've heard very good things about Equiotic. If I needed a really good probiotic, that's probably the first thing I would look into. The cultures they use are specific to horses (whereas ProBios and similar are for all types of livestock)

I've used Probios for quite some time but have switched over to Dyanmite products and use their Excel and Dyna-Pro.

I LOOOOVE smartdigest ultra- has prebiotics, probiotics, digestive enzymes... among other things. My skinny thoroughbreds fattened right up, and the product also comes with up to $7500 of free colic surgery reimbursement- runs around $34 per month.

Just the plain, old live yeast and brewer's yeast - works best for my horse and others at the barn.

Love this stuff. If I was trying to build a healthy gut from nothing, I would go for one of the paste products first.
